About Big Bad Blues Band

The real deal! The finest stripped-back, straight acoustic blues and roots music
Blues band
Public liability insurance of £1 million

When it comes to acoustic blues, the Big Bad Blues Band are as close to the real deal as you’ll find anywhere this side of the Atlantic ocean. Inspired by travels through Mississippi, the band uses harmonica, resonator, slide and acoustic guitars to recreate the foot-tapping, hip-shaking, sound of front porch blues. Since first appearing on the UK Blues, Roots and Americana scene in late 2019, they have become one of the most talked about new bands around, acknowledged for their informal, innovative and original approach to the blues. The band released their debut album "Take One Hundred & Five" on CD earlier this year. Taken from live sessions recorded at Young Thugs Studios in York, the album features both original songs and reworked blues classics. "Brilliant set!" "Great blues band." "The Big Bad Blues Band are climbing the ladder to success." "Absolutely brilliant" "Awesome band." "That was a great gig! Thankyou." "Thanks for such a killer set" "Amazing! We have really loved your music this evening. Hope to see you somewhere again soon!"
