This Sunday Cold Blue Water is going to be taking the stage at The Troubadour in West Hollywood! Cold Blue Water is a Blues, Rock, Jazz and Jam band from California and the brainchild of lead guitarist/singer/songwriter Andy Bs (pronounced B-S)! Andy has assembled a stellar lineup of talent that includes drummer Ty Dennis (The Doors’ revival band Manzarek-Krieger), bassist Brad Cummings, Hammond B-3 organ wiz Brian Swislow, and sax phenom Keith McKelley.
Deeply rooted from the heavy blues and rock music of the late 60’s and early 70’s, Cold Blue Water pays homage to the classics, blending creative, fast-moving medleys with sophisticated original numbers and top-notch musicianship. The band’s self-titled, debut EP was released in September of 2014 and features some of the finest musicians in music such as Hammond B3 legend Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Rait), and Duane Betts & Pedro Arevalo (Dickey Betts & Great Southern).
Upcoming shows throughout California include March 12 at DiPiazza in Long Beach, March 14 at the Arcadia Blues Club in Arcadia, and March 15 at the legendary Troubador in West Hollywood. Future shows are scheduled for May and June.
