Blues Blast Magazine said of Bees Deluxe: “…what might happen if Freddie King took a lot of acid then wrote a song with Pat Metheny and asked a strung-out Stevie Ray Vaughan to take a solo.”
Bees Deluxe is an anything-but-basic blues band. Hell-bent on a mission to drag the electric-analog blues of 1960’s Chicago, the Blue Note catalog and the funk of New Orleans into the 21st century, Bees Deluxe delivers with a sound that is distinctive, highly musical and downright addictive. Their innovative interpretations of less-travelled tunes by artists like Etta James, Joe Zawinul, J.B. Lenoir, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix and the Three Kings has won them fans and awed audiences from Maine to Miami.
Led by British guitar-maniac Conrad Warre, Bees Deluxe includes: Carol Band on keyboards, vocals and harmonica, Jim Gildea on bass and Paul Giovine on drums. The band has performed for enthusiastic audiences at venues including: Boston City Winery, Earl’s Hideaway in Florida, the House of Blues in Cleveland, Madam’s Organ in Washington DC and at fairs and festivals up and down the East Coast.
