Blues to dance to
Blues is considered melancholic music - "to have the blues" means, as is well known, to be sad (from the American: "to have the blues"). But when the BLUEZBALLZ play, there is no depressed mood. On the contrary!
Warm, fat and melodic blues at its best is the trademark of BLUEZBALLZ. The three professional musicians from the Bern region master the full range of blues, country, funk, ballads and rock and have long since justified their excellent reputation as an insider tip of the scene. They groove, blues, rock and spark full of joie de vivre and passion. When they get going, the party goes off. In their hearts, the three have remained the likeable guys from the neighbourhood, who many years ago rehearsed the beloved songs of B.B. King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix or Johnny Winter in father's garage.
Unplugged program at its best!
Besides their melodic and powerful performances with electric guitars BLUEZBALLZ also play acoustically. With their unplugged program the three musicians interpret the blues with acoustic instruments with minimal amplification. This form of blues is extremely pure and melodious, goes straight to the heart and is guaranteed to give you goose bumps! Whoever listens to the BLUEZBALLZ as they perform the blues acoustically, feels transported to a bar in Texas or Chicago, where the greatest acoustic bluesmen thrill their audience with back-to-the-roots blues.
Numerous performances of BLUEZBALLZ in their acoustic formation in small, intimate and also private circles at birthdays, company parties, weddings, anniversaries and events of this kind have become a constant in the performances of the band.
The band and its history
The band has been touring at home and abroad since 2004, playing well over 700 concerts and producing five CDs to date. BLUEZBALLZ mainly plays their own compositions, but also songs of the great blues musicians who have shaped the blues with global charisma in the USA between Chicago and Texas. The three professional musicians have also played in formations like Roots66, Polo Hofer and other nationally known bands. Their interpretation of the song "Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix was so well received in the USA at the time that this recording was given a place of honour in the Jimi Hendrix Museum in Indianapolis.
