Welcome to the home page of Gordzilla’s Blues web site. This web site was established to pay homage to the independence philosophy of the blues. It is not officially affiliated with or in competition with any blues organization. It is operated by individual(s) who love blues and respect its independent values. One must learn to appreciate the value of independence in the blues to understand the music, promote it and keep it alive.

Blues is an independent music form allowing musicians a powerful means of self expression and freedom. Blues is perhaps the most misunderstood and misjudged music in American history. Since its foundation, there has not been any music influencing life as Blues. It is essential to understand the roots of the Blues and its bond to nearly every form of modern music. Quite simply, ALL modern music placing the individual above the group is a direct descendant of the Blues: jazz, rock, doo wop, funk, rap, etc.

Larry McCray Band will be headlining 'Blues for Babies' Fundraiser on May 8th, 2017. Doors are opening at 7 p.m.Mike Eyia will be the opening act for the event.

Music beginning at 8 p.m. A $10 donation will be requested upon entry and proceeds will be donated to the Sparrow Hospital Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

This is a 21+ event.
