Nothing fills a dance floor faster than a terrific band and the soul music of the 70’s and 80’s is in great demand. Blues bands have never been more popular, thanks to the boogie-woogie of Jools Holland - we have plenty of blues stars who pound the piano and create a fantastic atmosphere as well as a stable of the grooviest guitar heroes. To get you started here are four very different bands we think you'll like. If you enjoy one of these or want something else get in touch.
