We ain’t trying to “keep the blues alive”…
we’re feedin’ ‘em STEROIDS!
bornBLUE plays the blues with a passion that not only satisfies the hard core blues fan, but opens up America’s greatest music form to everyone. The band plays a rafter shakin’ mix of blues stretching from Chicago, down to the Mississippi Delta, and out to Texas, with a sprinkling of English blues just for good measure. Their material includes rockers like “Shake Your Moneymaker”, “La Grange”, and “House Is A’Rockin’ ”, classics like “Hootchie Coochie Man”, and “Key To The Highway”, along with the band’s original tunes.
Although always looking to blues legends like Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and B. B. King for inspiration, this isn’t a cover band that just mimics what they’ve heard on records. Says Dave Toole, vocals & harmonica, “I don’t think you can have a blues “cover band”. The blues needs to come straight from your heart or it’s not the blues.” Bass player Dave Behrens agrees, “Muddy and those guys didn’t have the blues any more than anyone else, they were just better at singing about it. The blues touches everybody.”
