Blues Alley is "House Rockin Blues"
"House Rockin Blues" ; An Upbeat Charismatic American music that forces the listener to tap their foot, bop their head and uncontrollably begin dancing fervently. It requires a tight groove, dynamic arrangements and a genuine love for the music.
Blues Alley has earned the reputation as one of Connecticut's tightest, hardest working bands. The band was formed in 1992 when harmonica player/lead vocalist Dave Sanderson met with guitarist Russ Gordon, finding a mutual admiration and love of the blues, they decided to start a serious band. Dave brought in veteran players Alex Peckman on bass, Steve Levy on Hammond Organ and the most recent addition Dan Griffin on Drums/Percussion/Vocals
Blues Alley earned the privilege of being one of Toad's Place's regular blues acts, opening for Room Full of Blues, James "Super Harp" Cotton, legends John Mayall, George Thorogood and Johnny Winter along with rock legends Three Dog Night and J. Giels. The Special Olympics requested Blues Alley to perform three times during the largest sporting event of 1995. The summer of 1995 also saw the band perform at the Taste of New Haven and the New Haven Street Festival. Blues Alley placed number one in the New Haven Advocate Reader’s Poll for “Best Blues Band” three years in a row.
The band reunited in 2012 and is looking forward to "Rock the House" again
