Blues is a great American music that is not supported enough by the press and the mainstream media, but yet, some of the best musicians in the world are blues musicians.
The blues genre is based on the blues form but possesses other characteristics such as specific lyrics, bass lines and instruments.
Blues can be subdivided into several subgenres ranging from country to urban blues that were more or less popular during different periods of the 20th century.
Best known are the Delta, Piedmont, Jump and Chicago blues styles. World War II marked the transition from acoustic to electric blues and the progressive opening of blues music to a wider audience.
In the 1960s and 1970s, a hybrid form called blues-rock evolved. Blues bands are commonly comprised of a lead singer, guitar, drums, bass, piano/keyboards, and harmonica. There are many different styles of blues music often based on the place of origin.
Examples include the electric sounding Chicago Blues, the guitar-led Memphis Blues, the rhythmic Mississippi Delta Blues, and the swingy Texas Blues. Blues Bands can be hired for any occasion including club performances, weddings, corporate events, and private parties.
