BLUES : The Blues Band

Sat 20 February

The Blues Band

40 years and back for more

2021 sees The Blues Band Celebrate their 40th year together -Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher.

Many of the Blues Band’s 21st century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ‘just to play the blues’.

No one could have predicted that, 40 years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity.

About 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.

”A great evening with wonderful musicianship from all concerned. There are no weak points. However, were I forced to pick personal high-spots, they would undoubtedly be Dave Kelly’s vocal and slide guitar work and Sam Kelly’s drumming. Brilliant stuff.”
