The simplest formula. The maximum impact. The Chris Harland Blues Band has the command and the precision to nail every number they play. Every CHBB set remains a memorable, musical event, revisiting the best of the Blues standards: B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters… the list is long, the excitement sustained.
UK guitarist Chris Harland brought to Oz the tradition of British-made Electric Blues, the authentic riff-driven Chicago sound, a high-voltage heritage of Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Peter Green.
Bassist Paul (Paulo) Leeder has backed the best: Jeff St John, Wendy Saddington, Angry Anderson, the O’Donnell Brothers. Paul’s bass drives The Chris Harland Blues Band like a diesel locomotive, smooth and strong as a polished steel rail.
Mitch has been on the live music scene since 1975. He's just about played it all: rock, jazz, blues, reggae, funk, country, big band - even the odd stage production.
A Lick of Blues
The CHBB sound is strong; assured; enticing. When this trio works a room, people buy another drink, move towards the music, applaud and shout for more – and they spread the word.
