Hitman Blues Band (New York USA)
THE HITMAN BLUES BAND
THE NEW YORK CITY HORNS
Last seen at the Tavern in 2017, the sensational Russell Alexander returns on this UK tour complete with band and four piece brass section, The New York City Horns.
The Hitman Blues Band from New York City play complete original Modern/Alternative Blues and inspired versions of blues classics. The common thread for every tune is the blues – from soulful blues ballads to foot tappin’ music to make you want to dance. Powerful vocals, ripping guitar, a rock solid rhythm and brass section, adventurous horns and stirring backing vocals, this is unlike your typical standard blues fare. The Hitman Blues Band, play the blues you’ve been looking for all your life.
Frontman Russell ‘Hitman’ Alexander has New York City in his veins, blues in his heart, and the music of many worlds in his gifted hands. The man in the shades, top hat and sharp suit on stage with that tight band in that dark club is playing real blues, informed by 50 years of mastery of New York City’s thousand styles while imitating no one.
“Led by New York guitarist Russell ‘Hitman’ Alexander, Hitman has a striking, charismatic personality and knows how to entertain and put on a show with superb danceable blues and great covers. Born to play and with real personality, as he tells stories, jokes with the crowd, proudly features his excellent band and plays a spiky guitar with great panache and soul. What a find you may think and you’d be right” – Blues Matters magazine.
