Blues Counsel started in 1987 as the unnamed Jam Band for the Kingdom Bound
Christian Music Festival outside of Buffalo, NY. Some members have played together
since the mid-seventies and even the newest members of BC have been with the band
for over 15 years. Each member has a rich musical history with Blues Counsel as their
touch point, playing together as often as they can. Like close friends whose conversation
always picks up where it left off, no matter how much time has past, Blues Counsel's
eclectic blend of Blues, Rock & a touch of Latin continues to deliver therapy for your soul
with their newest recording "Muscle Shoals Sessions"
