Solid tradition, musical showmanship; the finest bluesmen in Europe!
Paul Jones ~ Dave Kelly ~ Rob Townsend ~ Gary Fletcher ~ Tom McGuinness

Over 20 albums and 35 years have passed since1979, when Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness expected a short shelf life for their idea of forming a pub band to ‘play the blues for beer money’.

The Blues Band continue to be celebrated across the media and have played to wildly appreciative audiences around the globe in venues ranging from clubs through to civic halls and theatres.

They’ve toured with Dire Straits and headlined at Glastonbury. Now they’ve added to their expanding catalogue of recordings with a brilliant new album, Few Short Lines.

The Blues Band are no musical museum. They’re the ultimate good night out. After thousands of gigs their passion and showmanship keeps filling venues around the world. You can experience it with their latest recording, Few Short Lines. Check out their studio guests: Bob Dylan’s keyboardist Al Kooper, Bruce Springsteen’s sparring partner Southside Johnny, Linda Lewis duetting with Paul Jones Dave Kelly paired with Scotland’s soul queen, Maggie Bell. If you’re looking for spirited blues with a peerless pedigree, your search is over.
