Basic Infos in English

Thank you for stopping by. Here´s some basic informations about our band in English. The most important thing – the music – is international anyway….

We are a Munich-based band that celebrates a sound that inspires with its power, elegance and emotionality. Our repertoire ranges from selected classics of Chicago Blues by Otis Rush, Junior Wells, B.B. King or T-Bone-Walker to many lesser known songs of the genre, which have not been endlessly copied in the Rock-Business. We revive these rarities with love and respect. For us, blues is a life-giving experience – we live every note and this love and respect goes straight to the audience´s heart. From melancholic slow blues through powerful shuffles to excursions into early soul-music, we offer music for every mood and regularly disprove the cliché that blues is only for melancholics. We are a pure live band. Again and again we are asked whether we have CDs  – we don’t: Our music is generated in situations which the audience helps to shape. Each time it´s created anew, each time differently. What we create depends on the unique mood of the band, the audience and the resulting interplay. Only live music is genuine, personal and unrepeatable. After all, what´s the use of a CD if this emotional context is missing?

Non the less for people who are interested in our sound there are of course possibilities to listen to some live takes, without any post production on Soundcloud.  You will also find our Tour Dates here and some Videos too.  We are also on Facebook. There you will find current photos and more live videos. Apropos „live“: You can easily book The Jakarta Blues Band, just send us an inquiry, preferably with a suggested date to jakartabluesband@t-online.de  and we will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss everything else.
