In 2007 Pelle put togeter his own band simply called Pelle Lindberg band. In spite of the bands short career they have managed to play at some prestigious festivals and clubs throughout Sweden. PLB has also done 2 tours with Kellie Rucker and is a first-call band when artists visit Sweden and Denmark.

Significant for the band is also the members focused soloplaying and ability to take it to the fifth gear, something that has to be experienced live!

Simon Mårtensson - Vocals, organ and dobro; Pelle Lindberg - Guitar; Stefan Rosqvist - Guitar; Alfred Andersson - Bass; Mickael Walle Wahlgren - Drums, percussion.

Guitarist Pelle Lindberg played for many years with the band Bloosblasters which has built up a large and wide repertoire of songs in Swedish. But if you want to work with international blues artists it's not that easy if you sing in a language other than English, and if this was the reason why Pelle Lindberg decided to leave Bloosblasters is open for speculation. Either way he formed a new band where the singer Simon Mårtensson has the right feeling and nerve, both when singing and playing the organ. Stefan Rosqvist on guitar, Alfred Andersson on bass and Wally Wahlgren on drums make the band complete, and several of the members also write songs. The new album shows that the band stands up well in the international blues world, and Lindberg himself proves to be a true talent as both songwriter and guitarist. Leave This Town includes eight bluesy numbers that makes you look forward to check out the band live as soon as possible. ~thank you mrwalker for the english translation.
