The Blue Side Band from Athens in Greece is the alt-rock band of Sotiris Nikolaou (Guitar / Piano / Harmonica), Argiris Vassileiou (Guitar), Petros Papavasiliou (Guitar), Tassos Kakogiannis (Bass / Upright Bass) and Antonis Dounias (Drums).
A richness of sounds soars around the room as The Blue Side Band combine influences of American blues folk with cinematic scores to produce music which drifts around the ears like luxuriant chocolate mousse.
The unhurried compositions are given the space to develop their layers as the quintet create complexities of textures which are enhanced by the range of instruments used, whilst equally, because of the pacing the audience is not led on a confusing journey, rather allowed to rest in comfort with the music weaving its way round the brain.
Originally formed as a solo project, The Blue Side Band has, like the music, evolved slowly to its current incarnation with talk of a debut LP in formation. This is music to take out at any time of the day and sit back to enjoy the presentation of sounds which nestle in the lower registers.
