Bio

This is a band that has that rare ability to change musical styles seamlessly and effortlessly, and can take the music to new heights while preserving the feel and soul of that great, great American artform, the Blues. With an ever growing playlist of over 200 songs, Blues Unchained can reach and entertain a very wide audience, mixing select covers with their own original tunes.

Blues Unchained can be found pumping out House Rockin' Music from Coast to Coast and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Performing on the very same stage as The Beach Boys, Tim McGraw, John Cougar Mellencamp, and actor Gary Sinise's Lieutenant Dan Band as well other famous musical acts, Blues Unchained has performed for U.S. troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center where the band is the most requested and most popular band to ever perform there according to Walter Reed's Morale, Welfare, and Recreation department.

The group has also performed at the University of Maryland's Homecoming Football game, where they unveiled their original song ,"Mr. DQ Jackson", written for Terps All American football player, D'Qwell Jackson. In addition to performing at school functions, the band is also the Official Houseband of the Terrapin Times Magazine/Website where they perform annually at the huge Terrapin Times Magazine's Spring Tailgate Party on the campus of the University of Maryland. Blues Unchained has also been on the bill and shared stages with their world famous friends Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, and annually with The Nighthawks at the East Coast Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which drew over 15,000 motorcycle enthusiasts this past summer. Blues Unchained has entertained diverse audiences at Ripken Stadium, Princeton University, Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Toyota Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, The Baltimore Marathon, and The World Famous Lexington Market amongst other music venues.

Blues Unchained has had Top 10 songs on internet music charts where many artists post their music, with Blues Unchained reaching number 1 on popular independent music websites, including SoundClick.com and MP3Songs.UK.Org, for their original song, "Fishin' On The Chesapeake Bay". The lyrics were written by singer and songwriter Eddie Crowe and the music and arrangements done by lead guitarist and bandleader Bobby 'Blue' Perry. The group also reached top ten status with 3 other tunes, including a rousing rendition of The Nighthawks' classic, "Too Tall To Mambo". "We wanted to pay homage to one of our favorite bands that has been doing it a long time now, just with our own twist to the song", Perry said between his and Crowe's laughter. "Ironically, I've never had the pleasure of hearing The Nighthawks' original version of Too Tall. When I told that to Mark Wenner of the Nighthawks he just laughed with me".

The band looks forward to an upcoming, soon to be released studio effort and more live performances in the area, and recently enjoyed a stint as the houseband on Baltimore's WMAR-TV Channel 2 for the Steve Rouse hosted 'Baltimore Saturday Night' TV Show. The band will also be doing more touring abroad this summer as well hitting the club scene and private event circuit.
