The Double Barrel Blues Band is a modern blues group known for their aggressive in your face guitar sounds. They offer original music and tunes that you can shake a leg to.

Their overall approach is reminiscent of the early blues that come straight from the heart.Their swinging rocking songs are a great compliment to the slow blues burners.
