Blues Fact
How To Book
The Blues Excuse
The Blues Excuse are a good time blues band. We play the sort of music that people want to listen to in jeans and comfortable footwear.

We play rocking, rhythmic, funky music that goes down well with a beer or two dozen and lots of great friends. Music that makes you want to get up and dance just because it feels damn good to do it.

In fact, people book us - and book us again and again - because a Blues Excuse gig is a fun gig where it's really hard not to have a good time!

We think that's what being a bluesman is really all about. And that's why we keep doing this (even though it barely pays enough to gas up the Bluesmobile, buy a few new guitar strings now and then and cover Noel's bail bonds.
