Multi-instrumentalists BluesAngels formed in 2010 to bring original and trad acoustic folk blues/jazz/roots to the Central Coast and beyond.
From jug band to jazz-infused New Orleans shake, Chicago blues bellow to bluegrass bounce, plugged or unplugged, BluesAngels will warm your whiskers with their backhills bemoaning and beatnik beatitudes. Guitars and gobirons, mandos and banjos, swingin' sax and creampuff clarinet, the Beatles bass, whistles, spoons, a suitcase drumkit and a thimbleful of washboard waling, it’s trad east coast blues the way we don't often hear it; pre-WW1 songcatchers matched with post-WW2 blues-bashers and modern times' rootsabilly.
A five-piece band with an accumulated age of 321 playing up to 18 instruments and growling across many styles of acoustic blues 1910s to 2010s, from Delta and hill country, thru New Orleans jazz and Piedmont ragtimes, Memphis, Chicago, West Coast, 60s folk blues, 70s Oz roots. bluegrass, folk, adding contemporary originals that often sound like an earlier era.
