Welcome to the Blues Music Band website, a place to discuss blues music, recordings, performances, and bands.
We built this web site to keep you posted about blues performances, like the Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues and Heritage Festival on September 12.
We are also interested in the history of the blues. We imagine you might be, too, so we’ll also keep you posted about re-released albums, documentaries, even books about performers like Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, Etta James, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Ray Charles, Elmore James, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, or Blind Lemon Jefferson.
Our interest also extends to the next generation of blues artists, and we expect this site to be a platform where they can advertise their concerts, singles, and albums. “Got the Instagram blues”? We hope not, but one should never say “never” in this world. If you have got the Instagram blues and want to sing a soulful song about them, let us know.
However, mostly the topics of blues are timeless and universal truths, pertaining as they do to cheating hearts, feeling bad, being treated badly, having loved and lost good people, or good dogs, or good guitars, and just generally feeling that this world could be a better place than it is.
If you can dig this feeling, feel free to drop in and rap.
Wait a minute. Did somebody just say “rap”?
