Blues Before Sunrise -The Band   The story of "Blues Before Sunrise" begins in September 2006 when Marie and Stewart decide to put together a band specialising in blues music - all shades of blues music.  Inspired by the work of great female blues singers such as Etta James, Koko Taylor and Big Mama Thornton, Marie combines the authentic sound of these blues divas with a modern sensibility.  Stewart's long background of playing in blues and rock bands has resulted in the development of a style inspired by Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, B B King, Hendrix amongst others. The band have an extensive repertoire from which they can draw to play the perfect mix of tunes for any occasion from corporate dinners to private parties where the guests want to dance the night away. © Blues Before Sunrise 2011 Credits
