Slightly Blue

Ed Stokes - Mouth organ, ukulele, vocals and percussion

David Budd - Lead vocals and percussion

Ian Loud - Cajon and whistling

Rob Bright - Guitar and banjo

Mark Lavender- Double Bass, acoustic and electric bass.

As the name implies there is more to this band than just the blues.   Although built around harp, guitar, cajon and double bass, the band also features banjo and ukulele as well as the odd frying pan!   

Based around Torbay the band’s character has been shaped by not only early exponents of the Blues such as Sonny Boy Williamson and Muddy Waters but also the more contemporary maestros Ian Siegal, Will Wilde and Wes West Weston.

There is a touch of folk-bluegrass and hints of jazz around the edges but all you need to know is that the audience is in for foot-stompin’, hand clapping good time before being allowed to quieten down to enjoy a gentle ballad or two.
