Bees Deluxe colors outside the lines of the standard blues repertoire re-arranging and reconstructing the classics in new and original forms stretching out when the audience insists and gearing up for the dance-floor as much as for the discerning listener.

“...what might happen if Freddie King took a lot of acid then wrote a song with Pat Metheny and asked a strung-out Stevie Ray Vaughan to take a solo” — Blues Blast Magazine

The band is spearheaded by the dual-frontline of British guitar monster Conrad Warre, and Allyn (“Aldo”) Dorr on bass & vocals with Paul Giovine on drums & percussion who provide the metamorphic foundation of the band on stage and in the studio. The musicians each bring their unique experience to the mix. Dorr has played the blues with almost every notable area blues band, including a stint in Jamaica as a reggae artist. Giovine was discovered by the band playing rock and roll in a slew of punk rock clubs in Allston, Somerville, Cambridge and Jamaica Plain. Warre, was in a high-school band in London, with Paul Kossoff, of the band Free, and has toured Europe with the English Beat and the Joe Jackson Band. He migrated from London to New York where he became a regular performer at the legendary CBGB’s. In Boston, he assembled Bees Deluxe, to pay homage to the music he fell in love with while touring and playing legendary London clubs like the Rainbow Theatre, Ronnie Scott's, Dingwalls, The Music Machine and the Moonlight Club. The band define their genre of music as “acid blues” with a layer of modern ‘funked up’ jazz.

We know that you are devastated to have missed Bees Deluxe's sold-out concert at Boston's City Winery on May 1st. There's a reason that the venue asked us to kick-off the return of live music. And we did. With a vengeance. Even though the governor said we couldn't sing or play the harmonica.

We persevered and delivered an instrumental show that left 'em screaming for more. It was great. If you were there, you know. If you missed it, here's your chance to catch Bees Deluxe again. Because they've asked us back. And we're returning to the main stage with vocals, new material, harmonicas and all the searing guitar, ethereal keys, bodacious bass and driving drums that have made Bees Deluxe the official "Acid Blues Band of Massachusetts."
