Q&A with next generation Chicago blues artist Michael Damani, brings the infamous style of west-side soul and blues to the forefront of a new breed

Posted on April 8, 2020 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

"A lot of people think of Blues as sad music, and perhaps even disgraceful to black people as an art form. Nothing could be further from the truth. The blues is soul power and the blues is truth. Many times, people tell me that although they are not blues fans, that my performance touched them. I hope that every musician or performer who has a passion for the blues can experience what I have explained. There's nothing more eye opening than experiencing the…

"Take nothing for granted. No use crying over spilt milk...."

Dave Kelly: The Music of Feeling

The individual members of The Blues Band were already held in admiration by generations of rhythm & blues fans when they formed back in 1979. Almost two and a half decades and over 16 albums later they continue to add to their growing army of…

Q&A with Mark Wenner (The Nighthawks) - mission of recreating rock ’n’ roll from the ever-exciting roots of American Music

Posted on April 3, 2020 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"Rock and Roll and the popularity of real African American music really did help change America (and other counties too). When Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper and Al Jackson and Booker T worked together at Stax, it proved that there could be joy and harmony. Still not enough to stop all the hate and fear but it did shake the walls."

Q&A with southern California-based Jim Gustin and Truth Jones, share some of the wisdom they have gained on the journey.

Posted on April 2, 2020 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"Music and all art reflect the culture. It is my hope that our music makes people feel like they are not alone, that others have experienced the same challenges that they have faced and are facing and overcame them. We want to be encouraging and provide some hope for people and at the least provide a distraction from life's struggles for a couple hours."

Jim Gustin & Truth Jones: Heart and…

Q&A with Jorge "Flaco" Barral, one of the most charismatic and unique artists in Uruguay's early '70s rock and blues scene.

Posted on March 31, 2020 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

"I think it’s a kind of boomerang. Culture self-nourishes. Literature, especially poetry, has rhythm and rhythm is music; music is also made up of lyrics in the songs. It is almost a loving marriage. The symbiosis of music and literary tradition shook the world, something that reflects in the life and work of Kerouac."

Jorge "Flaco" Barral: The Art To Be Artist…

Q&A with Latin America's rising blues star, Jose Ramirez - blend Blues with soulful genres such as Soul and R&B

Posted on March 29, 2020 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"Blues started as a racial and socio-cultural protest but with time, it has evolved, and we all live the Blues in our lives one way or another. We all have struggle and we all experience pain, so I believe it’s safe to say the we all have the Blues whether we know it or not."

Jose Ramirez: Here I Come, Soulful Blues

At 31 years old, Jose Ramirez…

British veteran musician Gary Fletcher (The Blues Band) talks about the Blues, racing cars and Nat Adderley

Posted on March 26, 2020 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

"I hope that music retains some sort of value to people - both emotional of course but also regains some fiscal value too. The business model for recorded music is broken - too many people no longer pay for music."

Gary Fletcher: River Keeps Flowing

Co-founder and continuing member of the Blues Band with Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness and…

Q&A with Montrealer, Justin Saladino - blues/rock 'n’ soul with powerful guitar playing, sultry vocals, and genre-blending compositions

Posted on March 26, 2020 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"Music, in general, has a huge impact on people, culture, and politics. The influence of the Blues is historically immense! From a dark history rooted in African-American slavery to British blues-rockers bringing the music to the spotlight; the music has since transcended era, race, and culture. It's brought people with completely different backgrounds together and has been a vehicle for expression."…

Q&A with versatile saxophonist Evelyn Rubio, relates to what she identifies with the idea that “The blues has no borders”.

Posted on March 25, 2020 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

"I miss the real live music in concerts, everything it's about computer and I worry for the new generations that can grow up thinking this is the only way to go. My hope is to sell out major stadiums around the world and my fear is technology will continue to divide us rather than bring us together."

Evelyn Rubio: The Soul of The Blues
