BFB — Chicago Dave Mo’Blues / Climax Blues Band

Volkshaus Basel
Saturday, 17 December

First on stage on opening night of this year’s Blues Festival Basel (BFB) will be the winners of the 2019 Promo Blues Night, Chicago Dave Mo’Blues. The audience chose this local hero because of his exciting mix of song gems by Albert Collins, B.B. King, James Cotton, Lucky Peterson, Robert Cray, and even Herbie Hancock.
This perfect start to a memorable blues evening will be followed by The Climax Blues Band. Particularly in the 1970s, the Climax Blues Band was one of the hottest acts in the world—the British blues rock band wrote music history. Their early Chicago blues developed into a progressive and independent style between jazz, folk, psychedelic rock, and funk, and they finally achieved their breakthrough with the world hits "Couldn't Get it Right" (1976) and "I Love You" (1980). They celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2018 and, on their comeback European tour, they will make an exclusive stop in Basel with their new album "Hands of Time"!
Tickets range from CHF 56.90 for standing-room tickets to CHF 77.40 for the best seats and CHF 102.50 for reserved table seating with service. Die-hard blues lovers can benefit from the Blues Festival 4-day pass for CHF 172.50, which grants standing-room admission for the duration of the festival (not including the Sunday brunch).
