Into a night of Blues

Published: 21 November, 2012 11:16 IST | Hassan M Kamal |

If you are a Muddy Waters fan or love the way BB King's guitar sounds in Into The Night, head on to St Andrews Auditorium today, and cry your love out for the women in your life, with Ministry of Blues from Bengaluru and the local Blues band Blackstratblues.

No, seriously. The Simply Blues Festival is back for its second edition featuring nothing but only Blues music. 

With only two acts, it’s not the biggest Blues Festival around, but packs plenty of good music. The festival opens with Ministry of Blues, featuring Vinoo Matthew, Philipe Haydon, Rauf and Kishore, who believe in interpreting the Blues classics in a style that’s fresh, fast and furious. Imagine a more furious version of Howlin’ Wolf’s Moaning at Night. And then you have the local boy Warren Mendonza joining hands with Jai Row Kavi (Tough on Tobacco) on drums and bassist Adi Mistry along with a special guest artiste.
