Red's Blues

Red's Blues is a blues revue, founded in July 2012, that keeps the blues alive with traditional blues, Chicago shuffles, New Orleans-delta, and West Coast blues, both acoustic and electric.

They perform as a three, four and five-piece band, and include a lot of original Americana/roots music in their repertoire. The band has released two critically-acclaimed CDs: Red's Blues (2014), and You Knock Me Out (2017).

"Beth Reid-Grigsby's confident alto vocals are breezy and unaffected by histrionics. In addition to blues, the influence of country and jazz is clearly discernible in her laid-back style." - Blues Music Magazine

"Red's Blues has a finger-poppin' attitude - straight outta the golden years when blues, R&B and swing all meshed together and dance floors every night were filled with snake hips and slow drags. Beth, with her sensual, southern voice and classy behind-the-beat phrasing, finds perfect rhythmic support in bass player and husband, RW." - M. Giles, Swell Productions

They will be joined on this show by Jon Lawton on guitar, of Little Jonny and the Giants and the Aki Kumar Blues Band, and Dave Eagle of the Deep Basement Dwellers, on outstanding percussion. They all know the secret of groove.
