Portsmouth's longest running blues band Burnt Ice have been around since 1987! That's a scary thought, but in that time they have developed one of the most powerful sounds around. The blues of Burnt Ice blend raw funky grooves with jazzy riffs to create a vibrant danceable sound. Music to listen to but best listened to on your feet!
The EP was particularly well recieved when Burnt Ice played at the Festival Elouges en Blues in September 2010.
At the start of 2012 Burnt Ice were rejoined by virtuoso harmonica player Matt Beckwith, Matt has had several stints in the band over the years, first joining a very early lineup, leaving to tour the world for a couple of years, then joining again for a longer stint, before taking a break in 2009 to work with some other projects, most notably the White Knuckle Blues Band, he rejoined us just as saxophonist Chris Shaw departs to take up along contract in Guernsey, perfect timing!
