Movin' And Groovin'

Feel the rhythm and blues through the sounds of sax, horns, guitar, and more. The instruments form a sound one can only describe as deeply soulful and a perfect accompaniment to your Saturday night. Blues originated in the Deep South of the U.S. in African American communities. Its most distinguishable attributes are the lyrics, bass line, and instrumentation that cannot be compared to any other genre of music. Now, blues fuses with jazz, rock, and other genres to form even more creative music with more layers of depth.

Experience the soulful tunes in real life when you go to a local blues bar. Bands will come out with an assortment of instruments and voices. While they play, you can unwind and enjoy the sounds that echo throughout with a drink in hand. You don't have to know anything about the music or its sound to enjoy the surroundings and atmosphere.
