The Big Blue Blues Band

Book a Live Blues Band

The Big Blue has played blues festivals, beer festivals and private gigs at garden parties, BBQs, birthday parties, weddings, charity gigs, New Year parties, end-of-term celebrations, biker gatherings, anniversaries and many other special occasions.

We don't churn out the usual song covers (you won't be singing along to "Hi Ho Silver Lining") but if you're looking for music that'll have you reaching for your air guitar and shimmyin' and shakin' your booty, The Big Blue may be just right for you.

As a three-piece, we don't take up too much room.  We bring all our own equipment, including PA and we can provide music in the interval, if required.


Book Stuart - Acoustic Solo

"Caught the gig last night. You lads are superb. I particularly liked White Room. Your singer's got a nice Peter Green thing going there as well. I'm sure I'll be coming to more gigs. "
Eamon Brennan
