Bluetown band returning to Terre Haute’s music scene

TERRE HAUTE — After a two-year hiatus, the popular contemporary electric blues band, Bluetown, has reunited. The three-piece power trio consisting of Michael White (lead guitar and vocals), Tony Tingley (drums and vocals) and Cole Higgins (bass and vocals), all have their roots deep into the heavy electric blues sound. Their sound is influenced by great electric blues artists from the late ’60s and early ’70s, such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and other great artists of that era.

All members of Bluetown are seasoned musicians with many years of experience, be it on the road touring with previous bands or in the studio. Their signature sound is a direct result of countless hours of rehearsals  and songwriting.  

“We bring a new and exciting sound to the Wabash Valley music scene, especially the blues genre,” White said. “There are some great blues bands in the Valley and Bluetown wanted to separate themselves from the others by providing our audience with a sound that will transport them back to a time when the music was a little harder and heavier.”  

Bluetown’s sets are a 50-50 split between original compositions and covers by great artists and bands such as Cream, Robin Trower, Hendrix, Clapton and others. Their unique sound is driven by heavy bass and drum phrasing with powerful lead guitar textures.  

Bluetown performs a mixed bag of song offerings so their audience can dance if they like or just sit and listen and be taken back to another place in time.  

Bluetown will be in the studio this fall working on their new album of all original material with a projected release date of spring 2015. Their first show since they reunited will be March 1 in The Cabin Pub and Grub at 1350 Hulman St. in Terre Haute.

Band members White and Tingley also are members of The Wabash Valley Musicians Hall of Fame. To find out more about the band visit their Facebook page.
