Blues

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Benjamin Vo has been preaching his brand of blues in the land of Pennsylvania. Forging his style from the likes of Peter Green, Hubert Sumlin, and Otis Spann – he keeps his slow burning blues soulful and organic. Powerful emotional vocals and haunting lead guitar lines marinate his old-school sound and aesthetic. His latest two records, 2017’s “Rain On My Window” and 2019’s “Blueberry & Country Sugar” push a refreshing take on the blues while still keeping it pure and raw. Sweetness, grit, and feeling – you’re in for a real treat.

“…Call this music what you will. I call it a thing of musical beauty!” – Greg Szalony (Blues Blast Magazine) 

“…intense yet tasteful playing, heartfelt singing with attractive vibrato and warm vocal tone, and a directness to the songs.” – Bruce Iglauer (Alligator Records)

“…powerful voice, compelling songs, and sheer brilliance on guitar.” – Sam Campbell (Gig Spots) 

“…Upon playing the first track on the album, I had an immediate “Wow” reaction. “Rain On My Window” is certainly up there as one of my best albums for 2018.” – Adrian Blacklee (Blues Matters! Magazine) 

“The blues were solid from the young performer, and the talk around me showed every person there was paying attention.” – Tory Gates (Broadway World Music)

“You play like a motherfucker!” – Bernie Worrell (Funkadelic/Parliament) 

“The Benjamin Vo Band took fans to church in the best way possible on Sunday afternoon. Their show at Tellus 360 brought unreal performances from each member. Vo’s intense blues-rock playing just dares you to look away – taking you on a crazy ride, as you wonder what’s next.” – Carrie Winchel (Rock Documented)
