BBQ Joints, Smokehouses, Taverns, Corner Bars, and Blues theme nights have never been better, especially since we've created a great new Modern Blues music program for bars and restaurants.
This playlist features the best selection of blues songs this wonderful world has to offer. From the moment the blues came roaring out of the Mississippi Delta, no single genre has ever connected with such a wide audience, and managed to inspire generations to pick up a guitar to make their mark on the blues scene.
It started with the biggest names in blues and all the signature tracks from masters like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Trucks, but that was only the beginning.
We scoured every corner of the musical globe to find the perfect blend from the legends and the best from the bands that, until now, have been largely overlooked. We've got the artists who keep their blues traditional, combined with a new generation reinventing how the blues is played. In some cases, even the instruments played get reinvented.
The end result is a playlist that's sure to please any blues lover. A great blend of tunes from the heavy blues rock hitters like Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band, and Cream, as well as artists keeping the music alive today like The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr., and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Not only are you guaranteed to hear the bands you love, but you'll also find some new favorites. Track for track, pound for pound, Control Play's modern blues playlists give you artists that know how to make a guitar solo sing, bass line shuffle, and lyrics that’ll hook ya, every time.
