I have always loved the blues as far back as I can remember, or at least as far back as being a young girl and listening to some of the greats: BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and then later on Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore &Eric Clapton, to name a few. There were very few female influences for me in this genre of music other than the odd Etta James song or a little Nina Simone & Janice Joplin.
Recently I was introduced to a lady with an amazing voice, check her out on You…Continue

Οι George and the Dukes είναι ενα δυναμικό ηλεκτρικό blues rock trio της σύγχρονης Αθηναικής σκηνής που βασίζεται στο συναίσθημα και τη δύναμη του αληθινού blues.
Η μπάντα ξεκίνησε τη διαδρομή της στα μέσα της δεκαετίας του '90, σημειώνοντας μεγάλη επιτυχία σε όλες τις εμφανίσεις της, καθώς γινόταν εύκολα αντιληπτές οι ατομικές ικανότητες των μελών, ο αυθεντικός ήχος, τα ταιριαστά vocals και η στιβαρή ανταπόκριση στην πρόκληση που μπαίνει όταν τρεις μόνο μουσικοί έχουν να πουν τόσα…

Φίλοι μου, τελευταία το Blues.Gr το νιώθω βαρύ και γερασμένο. Νομίζω ότι είναι η ώρα να κάνω κάτι γι αυτό διαφορετικά το βλέπω να πεθαίνει από πλήξη και αδιαφορία.
Κακά τα ψέματα, ένα site που δεν το πολυγουστάρω εγώ ο ίδιος που το 'στησα, δεν μπορεί να πάει μακρυά και μάλιστα "στον αυτόματο πιλότο".

α) το Blues.Gr γίνεται παρελθόν.
β) το Blues.Gr αλλάζει χέρια.
γ) το Blues.Gr…Continue
