About the Band
Based in North County San Diego, Blue Rush Blues Band is all about vintage blues. Music with passion, with feeling, with soul. We are experienced musicians with decades of playing, performing and songwriting under our belts. When we got together, the blues clicked.
Although the band is brand new for 2016, as a group of musicians we have played and performed together in other bands. We hail from true hotbeds of the blues, including Austin, Texas, New York, and Southern California. We do a lot of Texas blues and Chicago blues, but draw from just about every blues vein. We play the classics, all the standards, from the greats we’ve loved, like BB King, Albert, King, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Willie Dixon, Eric Clapton, T Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Although we fill our sets with the vintage blues, we are not a cover band. We take pride in spinning out original interpretations of the classics as well as bringing you originals that tell our story, that get the blues out.
Our sets are mostly up-tempo, filled with songs that are great for dancing, but we also make sure to get in some true classic grinders.
Whether you are a venue, a fan, or a fellow musician — let’s connect! That’s why we do it. Thanks and see you soon.
