First time in Chilliwack for Mud Bay Blues Band

The music is danceable original indie roots and blues with vintage rhythm and blues stylings abounding

The Mud Bay Blues Band performs in Chilliwack for the first time on Saturday, Sept. 30.

For 39 years (and counting) the Mud Bay Blues Band has been electrifying audiences with their unique brand of blues and roots music.

The five-piece band features four songwriters, three of whom are also lead vocalists. The band consists of Mud Bay Slim (vocals and harmonica), Murphy Farrell (drums), Mark Branscombe (guitar and vocals), Randall T. Carpenter (guitar, vocals, steel guitar, mandolin), and Dennis Ingvaldson (bass).

The music is danceable original indie roots and blues with vintage rhythm and blues stylings abounding. Their sound reflects a wide range of influences — classic Chicago blues, country, Cajun, ragtime, rock, soul — all finding common ground inside well-crafted, inventive songs.

Proud to have been forerunners of the burgeoning indie blues movement, the Mud Bay Blues Band has always taken the road less traveled, favoring innovation and interpretation over imitation. Their dedication to expanding and enriching the blues and roots idiom they cherish has never wavered.

The band’s fourth album Colebrook Road is receiving play on internet radio in Europe, CFRO, CITR and LG104 FM locally and on Stingray Music, CBC and on community and university radio across Canada.

The Mud Bay Blues Band performs Sept. 30 from 8:30 p.m. until midnight at Triple Play Pub (45975 Wellington Ave.). Cover $15.
