Blue Nation, from Birmingham, with drums, as a 3 piece. This current line up has been together for nearly 2 years. They use Riff based Melodic Blues Rock from a reservoir of influences, including Beatles, Cream, Zeppelin, Brit Pop 90’s, more recently Rival Sons and Vintage Trouble, to create their memorable sound. Their songs are delivered by three accomplished musicians, fronted with stunning vocals. All backed up with impressive gig experience, stage presence and great songs.
They play top venues in the major cities of the UK and further afield including two tours of NYC’s Greenwich Village and Manhattan. They are equally happy doing stripped down acoustic or full-blown electric gigs
Their most prestigious performances have been on the Main Music Stage @ F1 British Grand Prix Silverstone, twice, and recent tours with Dirty Thrills, Steve Conte (NY Dolls), Skid Row, Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy), Von Hertzen Brothers, Virginmarys, Cats In Space, King King and Kriss Barras. Main support to Toploader @ Rhuddfest and main stage slot @ Evoke Festival Brentwood. The quirkiest was The Tramlines Festival Sheffield, acoustic on a moving Tram.
Review of Skid Row main support set
“ …. style akin to Free, Cream, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Really enjoyed the set from 3 clearly very gifted musicians that have a strong set of songs. A number of 70’s retro bands doing the rounds at the moment, but Blue Nation really stand out from the pack….”
Featured by Planet Rock as “Ones to Watch”
The band’s new album “The Kaftan Society” was released on 30th Nov 2018 with a sold-out launch gig the next day. Vinyl version to be released by the end of Sept 2019.
Having toured extensively, including across US twice, the band are well positioned to bring a stomping live show to any venue or festival.

Blue Nation have been working with us here at Birmingham Promoters for the best part of a decade. They are very professional to work with both on event leadups and on show days. On their headline dates, they have sold out every venue we have put them in. We’d recommend them to all festival promoters across the UK and Europe as a solid and reliable booking.
