Founded in the 60’s, by the much missed Colin Cooper, Climax Blues Band has always focused on its roots, a unique combination of jazz and blues. After 18 albums, the classic world-wide hit “Couldn’t Get It Right” and tours of the UK, Europe and the US, Climax Blues Band is still on the road playing the blues in a creative way that has always been synonymous with their name.

Their performances heavily feature authentic blues harp playing as well as slide guitar. Originally formed as a trio in they added upright bass in the summer of 2015 to complete their sound. They regularly play around the Midlands Area and have played many blues festivals.
