Blue Rose Band playing blues funk, soul and jazz started, like all good artistic stories, from a person full of passion and dreams for the endless music. The band still never follows one certain style and pompous titles for its genre but it’s safe to say that this is a well measured blend of Blues, Funk, Soul. Within the jazz music the person who dares to share his every little feeling in the B.R.B songs is Vassilis Blue Sotiriou who created B.R.B in 1987 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The birth of B.R.B coincided with the birth of Thessaloniki’s local Blues scene.
Funk Worldwide With The Blues Rose Band
In the early 90’s Blue Rose band participated in every festival and gig that took place in it’s hometown. Throughout all these years, the story of the band is filled with plenty of live appearances and collaborations with many of the greatest musicians in Greece. The band has never stopped sharing its music despite the difficulties and the form changes along its way. In 2007 Panagiota Tentzou met Vassilis Blue Sotiriou and became the voice of the Blue Rose.
The same year, B.R.B welcomed Philippos Kostavelis as the piano and keyboard player of the group. Two years later, Christos Yermenoglou became the powerful drummer the group needed and in 2010 Agamemnon Mardas fit perfectly into this Blues party as the electric and upright bass player.
In 2013 Vassilis Blue Sotiriou convinced himself to release B.R.B’s first album: Reach The Skies. For this project he discovered the perfect combination of Christos Anastasiadis on trumpet and James Wylie on saxophones. Feeling now that Blue Rose Band is finally completed, Vassilis Blue Sotiriou presents with pride and love to the music world his first album REACH THE SKIES.
