About Something Blue
!!!! VOTED BEST LOCAL BAND 2010 - BScene Magazine !!!!
Born and raised in East Texas, the boys from Something Blue have been re-imagining the blues and gaining fans since 2004. That’s when Delano Guevara (guitar/lead vocals), Angelo Lopez (electric and upright bass) and Chris Oliver (drums/vocals) decided to reinvent what a blues-band could be: equal parts stripped-bare rock and juke-joint bounce, with the chops to cover anything lying in between.
Having opened for Jimmy Vaughan, Buddy Guy, and John Mayall – to name just a few – Something Blue has cultivated a non-traditional sound that incorporates influences ranging from Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, to Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine. Rollicking choruses, searing guitar, rolling bass lines and gospel-trained, demon drumming captivates every type of audience – from classic blues enthusiasts to kids who’ve never heard of Robert Johnson or Muddy Waters.
With the upcoming release of their debut EP expected summer 2011, Something Blue adds another notch to their belt that includes intimate club gigs, Dallas’ Smirnoff Center, The House of Blues Festival, and the 13th Annual Texas Blues Festival.
