About Chris Lord and her Blues Express

Swing & Jive band
Hertfordshire
Jazzy blues and swing driven by the superb vocals of Chris Lord supported by a mix of tenor sax, guitar and a 1st glass rhythm section.

A powerful and raunchy Rhythm & Blues 5-piece, Chris Lord and her Blues Express produce classic jazzy blues. The band is driven by the superb voice of Chris Lord supported by a heady mix of tenor sax and guitar all built upon a first class rhythm section. Together the band merges to weave a magical spell wherever they perform. Influences range from early artists such as Bessie Smith and Big Mama Thornton to more modern exponents of the art like Etta James, Beth Hart and Imelda May. The band covers some lesser-known tracks and always keeps the night exciting and interesting. Joining Chris in the band are soulful tenor sax player Tom Domagala; Rick Booth on guitar; Raf Ruocco on bass and Rick Philpott on drums - all fine musicians with extensive experience and great musical pedigree.
