Meet The Artists: Street Corner Blue

Street Corner Blue appears Saturday, August 26th at the Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival.

Chicago based STREET CORNER BLUE has been performing traditional Chicago Blues and R&B for decades. Exploring the roots from Bourbon Street to Beale Street, Motown to Muscle Shoals, this ensemble delights in exploring each divergent thread and weaving it into the unique sound that is Street Corner Blue. Each individual a gifted veteran performer, the collective sound positively brims with excitement and grooves in a way that only years of shared experience can produce.

The Street Corner Blue repertoire is culled from the rich variety that is the R&B heritage. Some of the material is familiar. Some is more obscure. Everything is presented with craft and care with each performance demonstrating the band’s easy command of the R&B language, a respect for the material that leaves room for twists and surprise, and most of all, a sense of adventure and just plain fun.

Street Corner Blue has been a reliable hit at Festivals, Clubs, and Events for years, with wide audience appeal, danceable sets, and a full out horn band presentation, which keeps bringing the fans back year after year.
