About Us

Since 1997, Brickyard Blues has been evolving its sound and building a following on stages in New England. We mix influences including Texas & Chicago Blues, Stax-era soul music, and old-school R&B, with some roots & rockabilly thrown in. 2006 marked the release of the band's 9 original song CD “Naughty”. In addition to getting airplay on radio stations throughout New England, their original song, Alabama Blues Man, was picked as the Favorite Blues Song at radio stations in Orlando Florida, Warsaw, Indiana, and has even been featured on a radio station in Belgium that showcases American roots-rock music. It's R&B plus a whole lot more. 

Brickyard Blues can entertain crowds big or small, inside or out, nighttime dance bar, private party, or afternoon family event - we do it all! With over 25 years of experience as a band, we are a great addition to any occasion.
