The Band

A powerful and raunchy Rhythm & Blues 5-piece, Chris Lord & her Blues Express produce classic blues with a hint of jazz, a touch of “sauce” and lots of nostalgia.

The band is driven by the superb voice of Chris Lord, supported by a heady mix of tenor sax and guitar, all built upon a first-class rhythm section. Together the band merges to weave a magical spell wherever they perform.

Influences range from early artists like Bessie Smith, Zuzu Bollin and Big Mama Thornton to more modern exponents of the art such as Dana Gillespie and Imelda May. They take great pains to dig out some rare gems of lesser-known songs whilst adding their own interpretation to more familiar tracks ensuring their performance is interesting, sometimes surprising and always fun.

Great Review from Blues In Britain Magazine 

John Mitchell, journalist for Blues in Britain Magazine, attended a gig we did at Farnham and gave the band an excellent review  - here's a snapshot 

"Chris Lord and her band was witnessed by a discerning audience who appreciated the fine voice, great musicianship and an interesting selection of covers: some unusual, some familiar but done with a twist ..... A fine performance from Chris Lord and her Blues Express, I shall look forward to catching them again."

Thank you John.
