Blues with feeling


The Original Lost Blues Band plays music from Chicago Shuffle to West Coast Boogie-Woogie. The band gets the audience in the Mood and to the dance floor in a jiffy!

While the band every now and then drifts into slow blues tunes moaning about the hardness of life, most of the time it's all about boogie woogie and partying to West Coast rhythms spiced up with traditional Chicago sounds. The band has been inspired by great bluesmen such as Gary Primich, William Clarke, Big Walter Horton, Muddy Waters and many more.

Although the band usually plugs in for the amplified sound, harmonica, upright bass, hollow-body guitar and the piano create an acoustic experience that is not too common today. The sound is clean and the sound volume is kept reasonable to make the listening experience as enjoyable as possible.
