About Blue

Bluetopia synthesizes many different American musical traditions – R&B, jazz, pop, funk, rock, Latin, swing, and more.

All of our music reflects a core vision suggested by our name; in short, we sample from or draw on the blues, we integrate classic and contemporary styles, and we aim to create a “good place” wherever we play. The five players in the group feature: electric bass; electric and acoustic guitars; saxophones and flute; drums; and dynamic female lead vocals. All of the players have long experience in multiple bands.

We take pride in our capacity to adapt to a variety of venues and musical needs, whether it tends toward quiet and jazzy or boisterous and upbeat for dancing. Whatever the occasion, though, this group revels in making powerful, highly rhythmic, melodious music that will bring joy to any audience.
