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, electic 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 we are playing, you are gonna wanna use your feet, cause this is BLUES you can USE!
