Ready to "kick it up a notch?" You've come to the right place. Blues Bar-BQ serves up a gourmet menu of saucy musical treats for lovers of blues and swing.
Brion, Craig, JoJo, Bob and Geoff. (Click on photo for larger image.)
Flavored with a touch of New Orleans spice, a dash of Kansas City boogie woogie, a pinch of down-home Memphis blues and good helping of jumpin' big city swing, Blues Bar-BQ offers a full selection of tasty musical treats.
Click on the links at the upper left to check Blues B-BQ's Southern California appearance schedule or to learn about the musicians. We've also added a page of photos we've taken of YOU at our gigs. The recently recorded hot new ten-song CD called "Back for Seconds" is available in person at the gigs or by mail order. This is in addition to the first CD called "Hot 'n Saucy" which was recorded in 2001. Join Blues Bar-BQ for some fun that will fill you up but still make you want to come back for seconds.
Put on a bib, don't worry about the mess...just toss the chicken and rib bones on the floor and get out there and DANCE!
Winners of the 2003 Orange County Music Awards, "Best Blues Band" category and nominated again in 2004 and 2005. Winners of the "Best Blues Band" in the 2006 Southern California Music Awards in February 2006.
Blues Bar-BQ has only been together for a couple of years, but in our short history we've already shared the stage with some pretty big acts. Among them are groups like Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers, Eric Sardinas, Walter Trout, Marcia Ball and Kim Wilson and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. We have played local clubs like Martini Blues and the Renaissance Cafe as well as for packed houses in major clubs like the Coach House, The Galaxy Theatre and B.B. King's. We have played for intimate backyard housewarming parties and big events like the New York Marathon and for groups like the corporate sponsors of the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix. Though not a "road" group (we all have day jobs), we do travel as far as Santa Barbara to the North, San Diego to the South and Big Bear Lake to the East. We will also travel to special gigs outside the area and have played at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and, as previously mentioned, we have been the featured band playing at the start of the 2003, New York Marathan and at both the start and in Central Park for the finish in 2004, 2005 and 2006. In '06 we even managed to get 30 seconds of national TV time.
As you can see from the photo of the awards on the opening page, Blues Bar-BQ has been recognized as the top blues band in Orange County, CA at the 2nd Annual Orange County Music Awards in 2003. This was based on a judged performance and on the quality of our 2nd CD. We were also been asked to perform at the 2004 awards, where we were again nominated as "Best Blues Band" for 2004 and 2005. The band also won the Blues division in the First Southern California Music Awards in February, 2006. Find out what the excitement is all about. Check our schedule page and come out and see us, or book us for your club or event.
