Energy and attitude
The UK’s most exciting modern blues artists, The Bad Day Blues Band exploded onto the scene in 2017, playing Times Square in New York City with double Grammy Award winner Delbert McClinton.
This amazing show was then followed by two critically acclaimed performances at The Isle Of Wight Festival in both 2018 and then again in 2019.
The Bad Day Blues Band have wowed audiences at many of the U.K’s major festivals, with their unique style of energetic Rock n Roll-Blues.
Unpredictable and raw
The new bad boys of the blues scene have played alongside artists such as The Killers, Kirk Fletcher, Ben Poole, The Manic Street Preachers, Starsailor, Badly Drawn Boy, Delbert McClinton, George Ezra, Cheryl Crow and many many others. Quite a feat when you consider they have only been together since 2017. You never quite know where there performance will lead to, including harp and guitar duals or screaming and shouting catchy chorus lines from new original blues rock belters!
Radio play by BBC Radio 2 (UK), Planet Rock Radio, Radio Rock (Brazil) and many Japanese Media outlets helped the group establish themselves as one of the world’s most exciting blues-rock prospects.
Mainstream media attention
Featured in international mainstream media such Bassplayer magazine (US and UK) and all of the main Jazz and blues magazines in the U.K, the group are very well respected amongst their Industry peers.
Television interviews on U.K mainstream channels; London Live TV, SKY, Virgin and Freeview have teased as to what may come from the group. They are naturals in front of the camera as well as on stage, with an uncanny, cheeky knack for promotion and marketing.
Sponsored by a host of international companies; Orange amps, Guild Guitars, Warwick and Framus, Ernie Ball, Seydel Harmonicas, Crom bass, Gamma, Rukus drums, Grethers Pastilles and Advanced Sound equipment. These partners also help with cross-promotion of releases.
Amazing songwriting ability
In short, they have a very unique set of skills, songwriting ability does not often come in these packages. They have possibly the best harmonica player in the country and a frontman with charisma, passion and an ease of performance that is rarely seen these days.
2021 promises to propel the band even further into the rock n roll stratosphere with shows confirmed for The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival and Brezoi Open Air Blues Festival, playing alongside other world class blues stars such as Beth Hart and Eric Gales.
The energy, charisma, songwriting and musicianship blended into one volcanic performance that you will not forget! So often when you see a group in this genre they are really a one man show with a faceless backing group but BDBB are a band of brothers, fighting the good fight to bring raw, energetic Rock n Roll to the world!
The groups first studio album is out on Friday 5th February 2021 on two labels; Lunaria for the U.K and P-Vine for Japan. Early indication is the record will chart in the official U.K and Japanese blues charts, with excellent reviews and lots of radio plays and media attention, such as BBC Radio 2 and Planet Rock.
