The Mark Nelson Blues Band are an original blues band from Surrey, playing mostly blues/pop originals. Consisting of Mark Nelson singing lead vocals and playing guitar (slightly differently as he does it one-handed!); Paul Stone on percussion, Glen Vaal on blues harp & occasionally Kevin Rowe on bass. The songs (mostly written by Mark) are a mixture of soulful, heartfelt ballads and thumping blues tunes with a good dollop of humour; these guys always find a way to entertain any crowd. In 2015, the band (as a trio) released their debut album “Out of the Blues” on Blue Trouser Records. With a whole new bunch of songs already written and performed live, a brand new album is currently being recorded and will be released soon.
