Still working on that hot first release.



Howdy! My name is Justice Daniels. I started Blue Lightnin' in response to so many country fans telling me they were ready for a shift from the older style country music that predominated the country scene to a newer, more energetic contemporary Top 40s country sound. They were hearing that sound on their radios and now they wanted to "rock country" with a live band and enjoy those new line dances like the "Yee Haw" and the "Hicktown!"

I began forming Blue Lightnin' in 2006 and launched the band in early 2007 so even though the band is "young", it's still well established by many "band standards" since we're all seasoned veterans who have been performing in front of audiences most of our lives. Now we were the first country band in my neck of the woods (Southern California) to immediately introduce nearly 70% more new country cover music into four performance sets. While most bands start with the old music and gradually add a new song here or there (sometimes only 1 or 2 new tunes over 10 years) - my approach was more dramatic - first, I gently set all that old country music aside, then I started fresh with as many of the hottest contemporary country songs I could find from today's country stars like Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Brooks and Dunn, Toby Keith and so many others. Only after carefully building music sets with that hot new music did I weave in some of those old country favorties from classic traditional artists like Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard! The results have been fantastic with feedback like this email we received after playing for film and TV star Julian McMahon's birthday party.

Hello Justice!

Thank you again for your band's awesome performance. Everyone had a blast. I think that if it wasn't for the sunset, people would have danced all night. It was the perfect playlist and you guys rocked. I also wanted to thank you for your professionalism. We will definitely be in touch for future events.

Thanks! Kelly


And this feedback posted by a client from Gigmasters!

We had a Veteran's fundraiser with a luau theme. Justice Daniels and Blue Lightnin' were FANTASTIC. Even before the event Justice was an amazing asset in helping promote it. There was great communication prior, during, and following the event. Then there was their music, and I could not have gotten a better band. These guys rock. Our crowd of more than 300 absolutely loved them. The band sounded great, Justice has a great voice. Their playlist was awesome and the dance floor was always full with everyone having a ball. I just can't say more, and they were FUN! I WILL DEFINITELY work with them again and I would recommend them highly. THANK YOU!!

These are the typical responses we receive during and after our shows! Country fans dig us because we "keep it country" while offering them new and exciting dance material and city folks groove to us because we're keeping the music energetic and contemporary enough that they can still "rock out" on the dance floor without necessarily knowing how to "ten step" and "electric slide." (But if you'd want to add some lessons to your event, just ask because we can help you with that, too!)

If you're planning any kind of country-themed event and you're not sure whether your guest list was written in Los Angeles, California or Laredo, Texas, then Justice Daniels and the Blue Lightnin' band can provide that hot spark of entertaining country music you'll want to bring 'em all together for a great time! That's what we're are all about!

Thanks for your time and we hope to hear from you!

Sincerely, Justice Daniels
