Early in 2000, the Canadian blues expert Johnny V recorded an album in Riga together with the Latvian Blues Band, and that was followed by a major concert tour of Canada that stretched from Toronto all the way to Calgary. This is seen as the beginning of the band’s career.

The Latvian Blues Band has appeared in Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Russia, Belarus, the United States, Canada, Egypt and many places more. It has taken part in major European blues festivals such as Euro Jazz in Athens, Sierre Blues in Switzerland, Narcao Blues in Sardinia, and countless other ones.
KEITH DUNN TRANCE BLUES BAND

KEITH DUNN TRANCE BLUES BAND

USA, BELGIUM



Keith Dunn Trance Blues Band plays rhythmic, Trance Blues for dancers and music lovers. It is a unique four-piece group; harmonica, two guitars and drums, no bass. Their deep groove, multi-styled songs are driven by a hypnotic beat with the heat of a hot southern night. The audience feels the emotion from the band. The mood is intense, a dance party is guaranteed.

Keith Dunn is the band’s Boston born, charismatic front man. He learned his profession while performing in the world’s top venues alongside the masters of blues, jazz and rock and roll. This is evident in his stage performance and flowing playing style. His distinctly percussive, inventive harmonica lines dance with the melody of the songs. He has a voice that say Mississippi juke-joint dance party.

EUGENE "HIDEAWAY" BRIDGES

EUGENE "HIDEAWAY" BRIDGES

A man on a mission since 1966 when his Dad Otheneil Bridges Sr, “Hideaway Slim" gave him his first guitar. Even though the sounds around him were calling out to Eugene to make music for many months before. Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges is an important link between the past, present and future of the blues. This has always been a part of Eugene's message and the music that he writes, and the music that he recalls from the greats, the elder musicians he has looked up to for over 50 years.

On each show around the world Eugene brings into view the yesterday that he feels has been over looked along the way, but needs to be heard. Eugene goes back to the sounds of the Church, where lots of the musical styles we hear in Blues, Jazz, Pop, Rock and Country originated. Determined never to let this story fade away or be forgotten, Eugene dedicates part of his show to pay respect to what he calls ‘THE YESTERDAY’, as he kicks off the new 2018 ‘YESTERDAY LIVES ON’ tour.
So come and join the band and be part of the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow in thes, music.
