The Beaker Street Blues Band, sometimes referred to as simply “Beaker Street” is a group of seasoned professional musicians based in Nashville. They are dedicated to not only the preservation of the blues but also music influenced by the blues. Beaker Street’s secret sauce has been their ability to present traditional blues in a masterful way and with showmanship that entertains audiences from the first note to the last. Their setlist includes music from the old blues masters, arrangements from today’s modern bluesmen, rhythm and blues standards of the ’60s, and music from some of Britain’s most iconic blues/rock groups.
