Who we are… local Cape Cod Blues Band who have family lives but get together when we can. The core of the band has been together over 20 years. Current lineup have been playing a standard set of blues songs for many years. 1950’s Chicago blues influenced- Little Walter, Junior Wells, Slim Harpo, etc…
We believe playing the blues is an experience in expression, and not a test of covering a song note for note in perfection. We communicate changes to each other through visual and musical queue’s and understand how each other plays to anticipate changes. We outline the flow of a song, but don’t script songs end to end. Allowing each time we play a song to be its own version of itself, not a reproduction.
We jam when we can (ideally 1 or 2 times a month), and gig every so often… at least once a year but open to more. Low pressure and fun is what we’re going for. Least experienced member has been playing for 30 years.
At this stage of our lives it’s more for the fun and camaraderie, but we do care about sounding good for our gigs.
Open to some new ideas and new blood.
