"With the current line up formed in late 2010, The Blackjack Blues Band hail from the confines of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. The band have established a keen following to date and have already graced such venues as Glasgow's Nice 'n' Sleazy's, Bathgate's Regal Theatre, Edinburgh's Studio 24 and David Mundell's reknowned 'Backstage/ Green Hotel' at Kinross amongst others.
In addition, the band regularly fill the blues slot on a Saturday night at Edinburgh's famous live music venue, Whistlebinkies.
The line up consists of Jonny Lawrie on vocals and harmonica (plus acoustic and electric guitar), Rick Lawrie on bass, Jonny and Rick have performed at many blues venues throughout the UK over the last 10 years or so.
Keeping it in the family, brothers Paul & Simon Harmer complete the line up on lead guitar and drums respectively. The Harmer Boys have played in various acts over the years, Paul in Edinburgh outfit Garner while Simon raised hell in the Juke Joint Boogie Blues Band.
Drawing on many influences from as diverse a path as contemporary artists such as The Hoax to the established Blues kings such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Sonny Boy Williamson. It sees the band at times paying homage to the much loved Surrey blues Delta of the 60's and a nod to the chaps from the Oil City Island as well.
Get on this band music lovers and be prepared to have a good time. The Blackjack Blues Band told you so."
