About The Band...

The Madison Blues Band featuring Kerry Daly on vocals is a six piece Chicago and Texas style blues band mixing upbeat dance tunes with soft torch ballads.

We cover the spectrum of blues by the original artists- from Magic Sam to Bonnie Raitt adding our own sparkle gets our fans up and dancing.

The Madison Blues Band has shared the stage with such notable blues legends as Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers, Louisiana Red, Kenny Neal, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, and Lazy Lester.

This band of local musicians has built up a loyal fan base by playing in local city concert series and well known festivals ( see our gig log )

The Madison Blues Band is proud to have participated in many charitable events for such groups as The American Cancer Society, Festiv Italiano, Agnew State Hospital, NCEFT in Woodside, and The Redwood City Police Activities League.

The Madison Blues Band plays the blues for the sheer love of the music, which is evident every time we perform. Our mission is to help preserve and promote this uniquely American music and to present it to our community with as much energy and excitement as possible!
