Got Blues is a collective of blues musicians based in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The band began as the house band for a weekly blues matinee at the John Brown Richmond St Grille (formerly the Globe) in downtown Charlottetown (a gig they still do every week September to June). The members come from the award winning blues band, The Blueprints (Chris Roumbanis on bass/guitar & Mike Robicheau on guitar), along with Reg Ballagh on drums from Rhythm Rules & the Soul Food Trio.
Every week they have a special guest at the matinee and that is where the idea to have a collective came about. Many of the guests have become defacto members of the band which makes performances interesting. Some of the defactos include: Chris Gauthier/guitar, Marvin Birt/guitar, Jason Condon/guitar, Annette Drapaeu/vocals, Remi Arsenault/bass, Chris Corrigan/guitar, Gary & Abe Waterman/harp & guitar, Brian Langille/guitar, Faye Pound/vocals, Jonathan MacInnis/sax, Jon Rehder/keys-vocals-bass, Barrie Sorenson/sax, Leanne Paris/piano-vocals, Dale McKie-guitar-harmonica, Mark Haines/guitar-vocals, and many more…..
Got Blues play a wide variety of electric blues.
