Russell Alexander

The Hitman Blues Band

Russell “Hitman” Alexander formed the Hitman Blues Band and recorded their first release in 2000. With 9 overseas tours and 6 releases, the band uses humor and audience participation as a big part of their act. But the main attraction is the excellent songwriting, musicianship, and performances. They play modern blues, which can be high energy, slow and soulful, or happy boogie. It combines rock, funk, jazz, and – of course – blues, to create blues of the 21st century! “Fine musicianship and strong songwriting – a winning formula!” – Blues In Britain “The Hitman Blues Band will make you glad that music exists” – MusikReviews “Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the future of the blues.” – Bill Wilson, Reflections In Blue “The Hitman Blues Band literally conquered the listener” – Sound Guardian
