Welcome

A powerful and raunchy Rhythm & Blues 5 piece, Chris Lord & her Blues Express produce classic Blues, R&B and Blues Rock with exuberance and joy.

The band is driven by the superb voice of Chris Lord, supported by a heady mixture of tenor saxophone and guitar, all built upon a first class rhythm section.  Together the band merges to weave a magical spell wherever they perform.

Influences range from early artists like Bessie Smith and Big Mama Thornton, to the golden years represented by the three Kings, all the way to more modern exponents of the art like Etta James and Beth Hart; but don't expect the same old covers -  The Express take pains to dig out some rare gems of lesser known tracks which always keep the night interesting.

Great Review from Blues In Britain Magazine 

John Mitchell, journalist for Blues in Britain Magazine, attended the gig at Farnham on 25 May and gave the band an excellent review in the July issue  - here's a snapshot 

"Chris Lord and her band was witnessed by a discerning audience who appreciated the fine voice, great musicianship and an interesting selection of covers: some unusual, some familiar but done with a twist ..... A fine performance from Chris Lord and her Blues Express, I shall look forward to catching them again."

Thank you John.
