Latvian Blues Band to Celebrate 20th Anniversary
Friday, 21. February. 19:00 Theatre House “Jūras vārti”, Karlīnas iela 40

On February 21, “Latvian Blues Band” invites to the band’s 20th anniversary concert at the Theatre House “Jūras vārti”.

“Latvian Blues Band” is actively working on their studio album; therefore, the anniversary concert will feature both familiar and beloved songs and brand new compositions from the upcoming album. The anniversary concert will be special because the band will perform in an extended line-up with guitarist Janis Kalnins, saxophonist Kristaps Lubovs and trombonist Laura Rozenberga.

Thinking about the achievements in these 20 years, Janis Bukovskis, the leader of the “Latvian Blues Band”, admits, “We have released 6 CDs and 1 DVD during these years. We have performed many concerts here in Latvia and also extended our opportunities and impoved ourselves while going on tour in foreign countries. Those are our goals that have become our success – to acquire a wider music market, gain recognition abroad and develop various collaborative projects. USA, Canada, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Russia, Belarus, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Croatia, Italy, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Norway, Uzbekistan and Egypt – these are the countries where we performed actively during these years.”

“Latvian Blues Band” will also perform at the “R&B Blues Festival”, which happened for the third time last year and filled Ropaži Park with blues, R&B and soal music. What makes this international festival unique is the fact that it is the only music festival of its kind in Latvia, of which the organizers –  “Latvian Blues Band” are very proud. As the representatives of the band admit, they are pleased and proud that this festival brings together artists from all over the world – Australia, USA, Belgium, Poland, Estonia, Denmark, Germany, Nigeria and South Africa. Particular attention is paid to the organization of the festival, and careful planning is done each year to further surprise the audience and improve the program. It is gratifying that the interest in blues and soul music is growing, so it is a pleasant challenge for the band to invite more and more performers to Latvia each year. The 20th anniversary year of the band will be no exception – “R&B Blues Festival” will be a place where fans of such music meet this year as well.

“Latvian Blues Band” is always open to new ideas; therefore, representatives of the band Janis Bukovskis and Rolands Saulietis possibly will prepare a pleasant surprise in the anniversary year for fans of good music. It is not yet known what exactly it will be, but as Janis and Rolands admit, at the moment everything is being done to delight the listeners with another big and serious project.

Tickets to “Latvian Blues Band” concert are available for purchase since December 10, at 14:00 at all sales points of “Biļešu Paradīze”.
