blues, maar dan anders!

BlueSox


 swingende bluessensatie

BlueSox speelt blues, maar dan anders: een opzwepende mix van blues en rhythm&blues, vol met shuffles en boogies. Maar de band is niet te flauw om ook latin en funky  invloeden te verwerken in de nummers. Bijzonder is de aandacht voor de arrangementen van de nummers.

BlueSox brengt opvallend sterke eigen nummers en wisselt deze af met eigen interpretaties van ander werk. Het repertoire zit vol verrassingen, loeistrak uitgevoerd en swingend.

BlueSox play the blues but in a different way…. An exciting mix of blues and rhythm&blues, based on shuffles and boogies. However, the band does not shy away from digging into funk and Latin to arrange their tunes.

Original material matches surprisingly well with the interpretations of other tunes that are ‘borrowed’ from various blues oriented bands.

The band has been around for almost 25 years now and still manages to get plenty of gigs in various venues, from cafés to spots on festivals. In recent years, they played Blues and Roots Festival in Brühl, Germany and were the support for Erick Steckel and Sean Webster. Recently, they were asked to do the ‘cool down’ for Johan Derksen’s ‘Keeping the Blues Alive’ tour. Notwithstanding how much they enjoy playing these bigger events, they are more than happy to live it up at your local just around the corner.
