2019 sees The Blues Band celebrate their fortieth year together.

Featuring Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher.

Many of The Blues Band’s twenty-first century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ‘just to play the blues’.

No one could have predicted that, forty years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity.

About twenty albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.
