Kings of the Blues

Man Street Blues put together this project in early 2019 as our tribute to the three Kings of Blues, bringing together the most popular classic blues songs from the three blues greats, namely Albert King, Freddie King and of course B.B. King.  We aimed to present a fun and entertaining show which the band would take to theatres and festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

 

To pay proper tribute to these great blues artists, we listed a fab horn section to augment the tracks with a solid brass section and backing vocalists.

The shows were being very well received and everything was going very well, with a run of very successful theatres shows until March 2020 when everything stopped, theatres closed and the country / world went into Lockdown.

The band took advantage of this down time to produce this CD with every member of the band recording their parts remotely, with mixing and production taking place at our Studio 79.

When venues started re-opening at the end of 2021 the band put the show back together with some changes and from 2022 are back touring theatres and festivals again.
