The Blackjack Blues Band

The Blackjack Bluesband

Traditional & original blues, plugged in or acoustic. Pure, heartfelt blues, straight from the river Ouse.



It’s not too much of an exaggeration to claim that Messrs. Baty, Pearl and Utting-Brown met on a bus. That this bus conveyed a further nine individuals in full Molly regalia several of whom,it has to be declared, were seriously inebriated, says more about the trios love of history, pageantry and real ale [not necessarily in that order] than it does for the passion for the blues they found they shared and before you could say ‘Be My Woman [and I’ll Be Your Man’] telephone numbers had been exchanged and toast pledged to the future of the Blackjack Blues Band: the Fenland Blues Phenomenon . . .
