Riff based Blues Rock

Blue Nation, a 3-piece band from Birmingham, use Riff based Melodic Blues Rock from a reservoir of influences, including Beatles, Cream, Zeppelin, Brit Pop 90’s, more recently Rival Sons and Vintage Trouble, to create their memorable sound. Their songs are delivered by three accomplished musicians, fronted with stunning vocals. All backed up with impressive gig experience, stage presence and great songs.
They play top venues and festivals in the major cities of the UK and further afield including two tours of NYC’s Greenwich Village and Manhattan. They are equally happy doing stripped down acoustic or full-blown electric gigs.


Their most prestigious performances have been on the Main Music Stage @ F1 British Grand Prix Silverstone, twice, and tours with Dirty Thrills, Steve Conte (NY Dolls), Skid Row, Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy), Von Hertzen Brothers, Virginmarys, Cats in Space, King King, Daxx & Roxane, Kris Barras and The Record Company. Main support to Toploader @ Rhuddfest and main stage slot @ Evoke Festival Brentwood. The quirkiest was The Tramlines Festival Sheffield, acoustic on a moving Tram.


Review of Skid Row main support set
“ …. style akin to Free, Cream, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Really enjoyed the set from 3 clearly very gifted musicians that have a strong set of songs. A number of 70’s retro bands doing the rounds at the moment, but Blue Nation really stand out from the pack….”
