Vibrant and melodic, funky rocking blues featuring Hammond-organ, drums, guitar, and vocals. Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion refresh the blues genre with eclectic arrangements, virtuosic playing and vocal prowess. Expect an exciting live set based around rootsy original songs, strong catchy riffs and exciting grooves; they mix old school tradition with contemporary verve and sophistication.
Zoe’s dynamic and commanding vocal delivery and interpretive ability is complemented by the unmistakable and inimitable touch and flow of Rob Koral-guitar; together with the highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ and Eddie John-drums they bring massive musical authority and the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions.
