The Blues Project

Bearsville Theater presents:

The Blues Project

Saturday, November 17, 2012

8pm door / 9pm show

Ticket price:  $30

This show will feature original members guitarist Danny Kalb, guitarist Steve Katz (Blood Sweat and Tears) and drummer Roy Blumenfeld.

One of the first album-oriented, "underground" groups in the United States, the Blues Project offered an electric brew of rock, blues, folk, pop, and even some jazz, classical, and psychedelia during their brief heyday in the mid-'60s. It's not quite accurate to categorize them as a blues-rock group, although they did plenty of that kind of material; they were more like a Jewish-American equivalent to British bands like the Yardbirds, who used a blues and R&B base to explore any music that interested them.

The Blues Project was formed in Greenwich Village in the mid-'60s by guitarist Danny Kalb (who had played sessions for various Elektra folk and folk-rock albums), Steve Katz (a guitarist with Elektra's Even Dozen Jug Band), flutist/bassist Andy Kulberg, drummer Roy Blumenfeld, Al Kooper, Artie Traum (guitar), and singer Tommy Flanders.
