Cutting-edge Long Beach band New Blues Revolution are one of the headliners at the 2nd Annual Latin Jazz & Blues Fest at Houghton Park, next Saturday, July 27.

Headlining a strong live music bill that includes area favorites Jazz Angels, Dat EZ Band, Box Car 7, DW3 and the Susie Hansen Latin Band, are New Blues Revolution.
  
In a music world where seemingly every band tries to be trendy, New Blues Revolution are transcendent. Where other groups feel a huge sense of accomplishment for playing one show a week, NBR are the Ernie Banks of the Blues – they prefer to play two gigs (often in the same day!). Where most bands pick a sound and stick to it come hell or high water, NBR willingly criss-cross the boundaries of blues, rock, soul and jazz with their music. And don’t even get me started on the colorful character who fronts New Blues Revolution, Bill Grisolia. When they made Bill, they truly broke the mold!

New Blues Revolution are leading the vanguard of the New Blues Movement in the U.S. (think: Black Keys, John Mayer, Mumford and Sons).  Similar to the explosion in the British Blues scene of the 1960’s, NBR work to broaden, deepen and contemporize the Blues. New Blues Revolution have performed everywhere from the flagship Sunset Strip (L.A.) House of Blues to a myriad of high-profile concerts and festivals.  NBR have opened for a diverse range of music legends including Tab Benoit, Macy Gray, Leon Russell, Rick Derringer, David Lindley, and the late Michael Burks. Forging a unique, distinctive style, NBR brings exciting showmanship to a mix of high-energy New Blues songs – deep, modern, rock-y but also soulful. The New Blues Revolution has received rave reviews from national magazines including Music Connection, American Blues News, and Cashbox to name a few. Their song “Blue Revolution” was previously nominated for a Los Angeles Music Award, with the band receiving a “Best Musical Group” LAMA nod as well.
