Blues, Blues Swing, R&B, Classic Rock
Blues City Swing is an exciting St. Louis-based band with musical roots originating in Chicago, New York, Oklahoma and from here in St. Louis. Their eclectic sound reflects their many influences: gritty Chicago blues, New York jazz, New Orleans R&B and a touch of Johnny Cash. The band, previously known as "The Spies" now has horns, and features the classic Blues/R&B voice of Chicago recording artist Mick McGowen. Winner of the Webster Grove's Music Festival "Best New Group" award, their excellent musicianship is the basis for some very listenable and danceable music. (www.facebook.com/bluescityswing/)"
