Rich Harpers Blues Band
The Rich Harper Blues Band has wooed audiences wherever they have played on what is a real journeyman career. Unusually for an American band they have toured extensively around the world including the biggest festival in Australia and Europe too. Now they are coming to Asia for the third time. With the success of their debut CD, "Don't Think Just Play", the Rich Harper Blues Band was not only selected as one of's prestigious "Emerging New Blues Artists", but Taxim Records, a German label, joined the group's growing list of blues fans by including a cut from the album on their compilation CD titled, "More Disaster City Blues". It wasn't long before the band’s name was popping up in blues magazines everywhere, and blues societies were urging their members to check out the exciting new group who were carving out a unique niche for themselves in the blues world. By the time the band released their second CD, "Bottled Up Blues", Europe had jumped on board by making the band the #1 selling artists in Switzerland on Amazon's charts. Radio stations worldwide welcomed the new CD with open arms and this time one of the cuts, "As She Moved In (My Guitar Moved Out)", topped Rolling Stone Magazine's "MP3 & More Blues Chart" at #1. The band’s CDs, including the live “Onward…” are available through their website,

Get ready for some big sound blues/rock when these guys once again close the show Saturday night!
