Blues Tribute Bands
Nothing can touch your heart and soothe your soul like the blues, so to create a magical moment filled with nostalgia, no one can do it better than the best blues tribute bands in the business. Ideal for corporate events or private entertainment, blues music has the power to invoke memories and unite a crowd in a common emotion.
Origins of Blues Music
The blues have been around since the late 1800’s, but at BHI, we know how relevant blues music is in today’s world; inspiring many other musical genres and continuing to be a driving force in instrumental wizardry. Originating in the Deep South with roots in African music, chants and spirituals, blues songs are characterized by their heavy bass notes and powerful lyrics. They’re also where you’ll find some of the most impressive instrumentation in music; evolving from simply a comb and vocals to now typically including guitars, bass, drums and brass instruments. The one thing that hasn’t changed in over a century of this melancholy music is the harmonica. A few chords and you’re instantly swept into the typical call and response style of the blues; the heartfelt lyrics echoed by the somber, harmonic tones of this iconic instrument. The association is immediate and the emotional connection, much like with bagpipes, is palpable.
Musical genres are so fluid these days that it’s hard to place definitive labels to the new artists we hear, but at the core of almost every new song released is some sort of influence from the blues. From jazz to pop to good old rock and roll, elements of this eclectic style appear everywhere and have shaped the face of music today. Classic artists like B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton tap into the soul of the style, while performers like Mick Jagger, Tracy Chapman, Ray Charles, James Brown and so many more adopted elements into their own sound to create unique entertainment. It’s no wonder that srv tribute blues bands and acts like the blues brothers are so popular with all generations: the music truly is timeless.
Finding the Right Blues Act
It may seem strange to book a genre of music that literally means “”sadness”” as event entertainment, but there’s nothing sad about the energy and passion of our blues cover bands. With such a long reach of influence that the style has, these tribute groups give you upbeat, entertaining shows that will get the crowd clapping. Rock out the night with Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Rolling Stones or ZZ Top and get everyone on their feet, or have an intimate setting with Leonard Cohen, James Taylor or Bob Dylan. There is no shortage of fans that will get lost in the melodic tones or reminisce with the nostalgic songs we all grew up with, so what better way to entertain your guests than with a walk down memory lane. When it comes to booking a blues act, there are party ideas for everyone, so from casino tribute nights to private celebrations, call Booking House Inc to help you find the show-stopping entertainers you’re looking for.
