Vocalist/guitarist/frontman, Stuart Bligh,
admits to being a huge Stevie Ray Vaughan fan. Following in the
SRV tradition, The Big Blue take pure, classic blues music
and inject it with a raw excitement. Stuart has been compared,
by press and enthusiastic fans alike, with Hendrix as well
as SRV but he plays down such grandiose comparisons. "We're
just keeping the blues tradition alive. We try to be authentic.
If other influences creep in, well that's just how we distinguish
ourselves from the next blues band out there."
For all live blues gigs, we strongly suggest
you telephone the live music venue in advance if you intend making
a special journey, just in case we've been cancelled and not told

you're looking for a "juke box covers" band, you need
to look elsewhere (you won't be singing along to "Hi Ho Silver
Lining") but if you like your music with a kick, a growl
and lashes of oomph, we could be right for you.
As a three-piece, so we don't take up too much room, although
we can't guarantee that Stuart won't take a stroll through
the audience in search of a suitable "bottle-neck"
to run along his fretboard.
