The blues make me feel so good


Blues Alley is "House Rockin’ Blues"

"House Rockin’ Blues": An Upbeat Charismatic American music that forces the listener to tap their foot, bop their head and uncontrollably begin dancing fervently. It requires a tight groove, dynamic arrangements and a genuine love for the music.

Blues Alley has earned the reputation as one of Connecticut's tightest, hardest working bands. The band was formed in 1992 when harmonica player/lead vocalist Dave Sanderson met with guitarist Russ Gordon, finding a mutual admiration and love of the blues, they decided to start a serious band. Dave brought in veteran players Alex Peckham on bass,

Steve Levy on Hammond Organ and the most recent addition,

Dan Griffin on Drums/Percussion/Vocals. Blues Alley earned the privilege of being one of Toad's Place's regular blues acts, opening for Room Full of Blues, James "Super Harp" Cotton, legends John Mayall, George Thorogood and Johnny Winter along with rock legends Three Dog Night and J. Giels. The Special Olympics requested Blues Alley to perform three times.

         The band reunited in 2012 and is looking forward to

                              "Rock the House" again.


           From diehard fans to those unfamiliar with the blues,

                          all are guaranteed a good time.
