Ghost Town Blues Band: Redefining the Blues Landscape

"Shine," the new album by Ghost Town Blues Band (GTBB), made an explosive entry at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. Embodying a Memphis spirit and breaking the STAX tradition with their contemporary blues vision, GTBB's rise represents an invigorating shift in the blues scene, as praised by Living Blues Magazine.

This Beale Street success story has been making waves, headlining at prestigious events like The Montreal Jazz Festival and The Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland. With 5-time Blues Blast Music Award nominations and recognition as International Blues Challenge Runner-up, Ghost Town Blues Band has firmly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the blues world.

What sets GTBB apart is their unique approach to the genre. Their performances are far from your typical old-fashioned blues band. From the dynamic "second-line horn entrance" to the innovative use of cigar box guitars and electric push brooms, the band brings a refreshing twist to the blues scene. Their live shows boast Allman Brothers-style jams and even feature a captivating hip-hop trombone player, captivating audiences across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The band's unmatched stage presence and energy have earned them the well-deserved title of the best new live blues show in the world. With their contemporary blues vision, Ghost Town Blues Band is redefining the boundaries of the genre and inspiring a new generation of blues enthusiasts.

As they continue to push the limits of traditional blues, Ghost Town Blues Band remains a shining example of the genre's enduring power to evolve and captivate. Their rise to the top of the Billboard Blues Chart and their acclaimed performances on the international stage solidify their status as one of the most exciting and innovative blues acts of our time.
