So pleased to announce our 2nd appearance at The Bear Club in Luton on Friday 19 October, more down and dirty, saucy rhythm & blues from Chris Lord and her Blues Express. Details on our gig page.
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.
