Biography

Originally formed in the early nineties, the Blues Mob was a trio - however they sometimes added keyboards.

With the release of their first Alligator album “Bloodlines” in 1994, Michael Hill’s Blues Mob immediately established themselves as a cutting-edge, premier contemporary blues band with original music of uncommon power and conviction. “Bloodlines” went on to earn the Living Blues Critic’s award for Debut Blues Album of the Year, as well a slew of other rave reviews. The next four years saw the band release two more highly acclaimed albums on Alligator Records, with “Have Mercy!” (1996) and “New York State Of Blues” (1998) collecting their own choruses of excellent reviews. The cheering continued on the road: Michael Hill’s Blues Mob has been described as a dynamic, crowd-pleasing live act, receiving much love from audiences and lighting up the stage at the Chicago Blues Festival, Memphis In May and other festivals and clubs. They’ve done numerous tours, playing festivals and clubs in England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Norway and the rest of Europe and Scandinavia as well as tours in Turkey, Russia and five trips each to Brazil and Australia.

The New Millennium saw Michael Hill’s Blues Mob release their fourth album in 2001 on Singular Records in the U.S. and Dixiefrog in Europe, and “Suite: Larger Than Life” earned the Mob’s very positive reviews overall.
