The Barrelhouse Blues Band are three accomplished and experienced musicians whose music has been appreciated in pubs, clubs,festivals and at private functions throughout the midlands and further afield since 1992.
Together for twenty four years, the BarrelHouse Blues Band have proved themselves to be a force to be reckoned with. Their musical style has evolved from their inception and continues to adapt to take into account their experiences, whilst remaining rooted in blues/rock. The band takes their principal musical influences from Cream, Clapton, Cozy Powell, Freddy King, and Rory Gallagher.
Bringing together their diverse musical experiences and interests they have created their own special blend of blues and soft rock delivered in a unique fashion. Colin's brilliance on guitar and vocals is matched by the strong rhythm support given by Dean's solid bass, and powered by dynamo Phil on drums. This is a band not to be missed.
All three have impressive musical pedigrees and have earned their reputations by hard work and dedication. By coming together they have forged a trully awesome act and continue to prove themselves to be the best around.
The current line up consists of, Dean'o (Bass), Phil Cunniffe (Drums), and Colin Hughes (Guitar and Vocals).
Colin's particularly unique vocal style continues to go from strength to strength, complimented by his expertise on guitar and providing the perfect front for Phil's power drumming and Dean's growling bass. They play together with a synergy resulting from years of experience and maturity which is truly awesome.
