In August 2017, Mighty Blue won the Regional International Blues Challenge in East Tennessee, and in January 2018 traveled to Memphis to challenge over 200 bands from around the globe in the IBC finals. Playing for and competing with the world’s top musicians was a thrilling achievement, and Mighty Blue has returned home to reign as Knoxville’s top blues band. Guaranteed to get you on your feet with their blues, rock, funk and soul; their high energy mix is an irresistible good time for any occasion. Their web site (MightyBlue.net) has more information, photos and videos of the band.
First and foremost, Mighty Blue is a Blues Band. Founded by Michael James, Paul McQuade, Brian Murphy, and Barry Freeman in 2005, they were driven to play old school blues from Chicago, Memphis, and Texas. Through the years Mighty Blue has been graced by the talents of many local Knoxville, TN, area musicians such as Chuck McCroskey, Chico Crawford, Scott Fugate, Jen Wolery, Richard “Bluesman” Bryant, Detroit Dave Meer, and Traci Cochran.
Although the Blues is still Mighty Blue‘s calling, with it’s new, eclectic line-up, it’s hard not to jump into some satisfying soul or a funky vibe, sprinkled with some saucy swing and rock-n-roll to boot. No matter what style they are playing, you are gonna wanna use your feet, cause this is BLUES you can USE!
