Taking a modern, aggressive approach to the old school blues format, A TON OF BLUES burst onto the New England Blues Circuit in the summer of 2010. With a sound reminiscent of Buddy Guy backed up by the Fabulous Thunderbirds, they play with a passion and drive that makes you rumble like a runaway freight train while you fumble to buckle your seat belt. They were voted the Best Blues/R&B Act at the 2011 & 2012 Worcester (MA) Music Awards, won the 2011 Boston (MA) Blues Challenge and were invited to compete in the 2012 International Blues Challenge on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. The band has made it a priority to create quality Blues music, emit a positive presence among the Blues community and rekindle the support for American Blues and Roots music. A TON OF BLUES has shared the stage with noted blues greats such as Johnny Winter, Guitar Shorty, Joe Lewis Walker, Ronnie Earl, Sugar Ray Norcia, Dana Fuchs, James Montgomery, members of Roomful of Blues, the J. Geils Band, the Blues Brothers and many more. The band’s newest CD, “Crooked Avenue”, was released in March, 2012 to rave reviews.
