Jump, Blues, Swing, R&B
The late 1940's and early 1950's were a magical time in American musical history, when blues, rhythm & blues, swing and rock & roll were all one thing. Blue Lunch explores that music and makes it their own.
Eight virtuoso musicians, performing on guitar, piano, upright bass, drums, harmonica, saxophones, trumpet, and trombone, make up the band. They've performed at dozens of concerts, festivals, dances, clubs and private functions throughout the mid-West.
In addition to their exciting instrumental work, Blue Lunch also boasts at least five vocalists and includes do-wop style harmonies in their repertoire.
Blue Lunch has recorded and released five cds, Recorded Live at Wilberts, Eyes Wide Open, Not Live at the Copa., Big Sound Blues., and their newest, Sideswiped. The cds have received airplay all over the world.
2009 marked the 25th anniversary of the band.
