Ida Bang & The Blue Tears celebrate 10 years as a band!
10 years have passed since the band had their first gig together and it will of course be celebrated in their hometown Stockholm with a crackling, extra-everything concert at Fasching on September 29!
During their 10 years, Ida Bang & The Blue Tears have played extensively throughout Europe and convinced both audiences and critics that they are a great live band. With great interplay and joy of playing, they intertwine soul, blues, funk, rock and pop and form their own genre under the Americana umbrella. The self-penned songs are mixed with other nuggets that have passed through the Bang filter.
“Warm and nice on the surface, but things are happening underneath. […] More Americana than regular blues, more lightness than tunggun” said the reviewer in DN about the album “Good To Me”, which also led to an extended tour in Europe as a connection to Lake Street Dive. The latest single “Keep on keepin’ on” is a real happy song that shows the direction the band has now taken.
