The Lights Out Blue Band is a
4-piece traditional blues band that was formed 7 years ago to honor the "Chess
Records" masters of the '50s and 60's while creating its own
unique style of traditional blues. The
band has been performing in numerous
venues throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Lights Out was the "house band" at the
Boston House of Blues Foundation Room hosting the monthly blues jams throughout
2015 and was 2017 winner of the Granite State Blues Challenge and competed in
the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn. Named after Marion “Little Walter”
Jacobs’ haunting chromatic harmonica song "Lights Out", the band
brings a rare level of experience and passion to traditional blues.
Next up: Lights Out will not be performing at any shows in the immediate future due to the health concerns of the Coronavirus. Hope to see you soon. Stay well!!!!
