About Booking Blues Bands
Blues music traces its origins to the Mississippi Delta communities from spirituals and songs of praise. 'The Blues' influenced later American pop music, as blues bands crossed over to the music of ragtime, jazz, bluegrass, r&b, rock and roll (including such notable bands as Rolling Stones, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, White Stripes, Stevie Ray Vaughan) and hip hop. Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker are considered blues legends. Blues bands are very popular today in cities with thriving music scenes, in smaller towns and for weddings, blues festivals, and events of all types. Hire a blues band for your next party, blues club, bar, blues festival, or corporate event. Start your search by selecting a city above.
Some things to consider when hiring a Blues Band are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the band and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional blues bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the band for your party.
