The project THE bluesmen started in '93 with the fundamental contribution of a new rhythmic base consists Corticelli Bruno (bass) and Daniele Barbieri (drums), driving the quartet to revisit in a personal way as the classic blues sound, the first work was realized in 1996, producing the CD with the music label of acoustic blues-swing "Brave Blues."

Today, the group shows a renewed and energetic sound thanks to the drumming of Robert Morsch, and drawing on twenty years experience in blues music, offers a new work produced by the Municipality of Ferrara - Department of Political and Cultural Institutions, by the name " The Bluesmen, "which contains 11 songs including 9 originals, ranging from blues-rock, swing, delta blues.
