Killing Floor Blues Band
The Killing Floor Blues Band takes its name from a Howlin Wolf song and its this sound that the band pays homage to, Chicago electric blues of the 50's and 60's.
Consisting of Ben Abel on guitar and vocals, the band started in 2011 and has played many shows both in and out of Vancouver. John Vavrik handles the bass duties while drummer Ted Laturnus hits the skins. Coal Davie is the band's newest member having joined in this year on harmonica and backing vocals.
The band plays several blues classics as well as original music thrown in for good measure. Songs like Spoonful and Killing Floor currently populate their set as does originals like Funk n Low Down.
This is a great band that pays tribute to some of the finest music of the 20th century. Available for small and large gigs as well as corporate events and parties, it promises high energy music that harkens back to a time when rock and roll was just getting started and the blues was still king.
