About this Act

The Edgar Reed Blues Band are a North Yorkshire based act who consist of seasoned, professional musicians from the area making the music they love, the blues! Their combined components of gravelly vocals and that unique, wonderful fat sound of the Hammond organ and of course, great blues guitar work lend this act a truly authentic sound and feel. 

The band is made up of musicians who have cut their collective teeth in other bands and members have played and toured, both in this country and abroad with such luminaries as such notable acts such as John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton, Dr Feelgood, Albert Lee, Hogan's Heroes, Steve Cropper, The Animals, Chris Rea, and even the late, great Roy Castle.
