No matter if you experience a concert while sitting, or if you dance and move to the groove. Blues connects people.

"If your music is not the spiritual expression of what you are then what IS it? It is our subconscious, unconscious, ancestral, ego, god, coping mechanism, creation, undoing. Celebration, communication, catharsis, connection and rebellion all in the same beautiful, gritty, bluesy breath. It is the song of every road travelled and every path not taken.
