Singing The Blues

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…

GEORGE AND THE DUKES live @ IN VIVO Σάββατο 22 Οκτωβρίου

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…

Το Blues.Gr γέρασε

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".

Σκέφτομαι λοιπόν αυτή την περίοδο και αναζητώ διεξόδους. Οι διέξοδοι είναι:

α) το Blues.Gr γίνεται παρελθόν.

β) το Blues.Gr αλλάζει χέρια.
