Rob Stone & the C-Notes

“This young outfit respects vintage Chicago blues deeply enough to blow the dust right off it!” -BILL DAHL, CHICAGO READER

A live performance by Rob Stone & the C-Notes can transport the listener back to the heyday of Chicago Blues.

Fronted by Harp-playing vocalist ROB STONE and held together by a rock-solid rhythm section, the group is comprised of seasoned professionals who have paid their dues in the smoky Chicago blues joints and toured coast to coast across North America and Europe, as well as the Hawaiian islands and Japan, playing countless blues festivals, club dates and television appearances.

Separately, the members of the group have recorded for the respected Alligator, Evidence, Earwig, Hightone, Ice House, Marquis, Appaloosa and Magnum blues labels, and received national recognition in countless blues publications. These musicians have performed with and learned from many of the greats…and it shows from the first note. They are all authentic showmen with pure ability to tear up a stage, as evidenced by their prominent role in the recent Martin Scorsese-produced “Godfathers and Sons” episode of The Blues series that aired recently on PBS stations nationwide. Their latest cd release “Just My Luck” on Chicago’s Earwig label was nominated for a Chicago Music Award in the “Best Blues Album” category.

Rob Stone and the C-Notes play blues the way it is supposed to be played…with love and respect for the tradition that lies at the heart of the music. Their goal is to introduce a younger audience to the exciting music of Chicago blues. While they stay true to the tradition, Rob Stone and the C-Notes have a sound that is all their own. The result is a genuine, blues show unsurpassed in energy, feeling, and authenticity, presented with professionalism and a touch of class.
