"POST-PANDEMIC" BLUES...

 

BLUES PEOPLE is a NY/NJ band featuring KELTON COOPER (vocals/guitar), VICTOR BURKS (keys/vocals), MIKE GRIOT (bass), and GENE LAKE (drums). Early comparisons to the Meters, Luther Allison, Keb Mo' and Earth Wind & Fire are starting to roll in... and the band is currently in the studio recording their much-anticipated 2022 debut album "The Skin I'm In".

 

Blues People: Inspired by Amiri Baraka's (LeRoi Jones) seminal study of Afro-American music, Blues People musically explores the effects of the blues on American culture on many different levels... and the belief that the band's "Neo-Blues" moniker is a modern chronicle of four real-life blues brothers living in THIS time in America... and surviving the NY/NJ-Metro landscape.
