The secret's out!
Formerly little known outside their remote Canadian town, jump blues dance band Ron Campbell & the bLUES bUSTERS are now attracting new fans daily with their "jazzy swinging tunes, impossible not to dance to" and their "strong soulful blues vocals, and top notch musicianship". Word is spreading about "Canada's best-kept blues secret".
Not just another guitar band playing a stale 12-bar formula, the bLUES bUSTERS stand out with their use of saxophone and harmonica, their "brilliant songwriting", "fine harmony singing" and their jazz-influenced scales and chords. All without sacrificing the "powerhouse blues delivered with style and attitude" that blues fans have come to expect.
The band has been together since 2010, though Ron himself has been playing blues professionally for 52 years. In that time, he's released six CDs and has played literally thousands of gigs, rocking the dance floor in sweaty rooms throughout western Canada. Over the years, he's worked and played with some of the best Canadian bluesmen, from Powder Blues' Jack Lavin to David 'Boxcar' Gates.
