Formed in 2009, Big Bang Blues takes its spirit from the times when Blues was born. Fathered by voices that sang of angst and misery. Backed by rusty stringed guitars and harps.
With numerous line-up changes, Big Bang Blues (BBB) has evolved its character and music to call it their own. Although mostly referred to as a Blues band, the members of BBB contend that it is an incomplete interpretation of their music. Influenced by genres of Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz, Funk and Rock, BBB bring a wide repertoire of music to the stage. The six-piece band creates its sound from the diverse influences brought in together by the six members who trace their roots to completely different backgrounds. From influences ranging from the Mississippi Delta Blues, to 60’s influences Blues- Rock to Indian Fusion to Metal the members have done it all in their previous musical careers.
With a belief that we are part of that ancestry, learners and disciples of Blues prophets like Muddy Waters, BB King, Clapton, Janis Joplin, amongst others, we feel proud to be part of the evolution. The Evolution that is fueled by a catalog of material that inspires and fuels the evolution of the world of blues
