Blue Haven Blues Band / Bio


Is a four piece boogie blues band based out of Reno, Nevada. We specialize in playing up-beat danceable blues music with soul and attitude. Our unique brand of music has a dynamic mixture of styles ranging from West Coast jump to slow Chicago grind, Texas shuffle to flat out Rock & Roll. Our goal as a band is to have a positive interaction with our audience at every show and to get everyone up and out of their seats dancing.
