By2Blues Thrilled the audience at Adishkati

Friday night, and blues band just fitted into the soft monsoon night. The audience came on their expense with more than an hour of solid blues by By2 Blues band from Bangalore at Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts & Research last night. Original songs depicting life in the city were refreshingly humorous (as Ananth says, everything is about politics and infidelity), renderitions of standards on high level. Trio in amazing snychronisity and in tune with each other, yet each of them very skillful and professional. Love for blues, and its simplicity permeates their (blues) style.

By2Blues is a well-known classic blues trio. United by a deep and abiding love for the blues, Ananth, Dev and Joe present the blues with refreshing simplicity and honesty. By2Blues plays classic blues and a bit of blues-rock in a highly original style. The band’s unique sound is a blend of powerful vocals, rock-solid rhythm and honkin’ harmonica. The band has an eclectic repertoire comprising several of their own compositions and interesting versions of popular songs by blues legends such as Stevie Ray, Clapton, Junior Wells, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, Keb Mo, Billy Branch, Taj Mahal, CCR, Neil
Young, Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon and several other legends.
