Chicago Beau and The Blue Ice Band, Sigurgeir Sigmundsson & The Dream Band and Primecake

The Reykjavík Blues Festival will start with a bang when Chicago Beau, the festival’s honorary guest, steps on the stage with the Blue Ice Band. Chicago Beau was a frequent guest here in Iceland between 1991 and 1995 when he toured with the Blue Ice Band in Europe and North America. This reunion gives blues enthusiasts a chance to relive the magic.

Before the interval Sigurgeir Sigmundsson & the Dream Band will be entertaining the audience with songs from their newly released album along with classic Deep Purple and Gary Moore songs. The Dream Band includes musicians: Ásmundur Jóhannsson (drums), Jóhann Ásmundsson (bass), Þórir Úlfarsson (keyboard) and Páll Rósinkranz (vocals).

Representing the up and coming new bands is Primecake. A perfect beginning to a great festival.

It’s a celebration of the blues, with love from Iceland.
