The Hitman Blues Band
About Hitman Blues Band
Formed in 1986, The Hitman Blues Band played all over the New York metro area before moving on to the UK and the rest of the US Eastern Seaboard. While the personnel have changed over the years due to touring demands (except for Russell "Hitman" Alexander), the line-up has always been top notch players with the fire and experience needed to lift up the audience. With two critically acclaimed CDs and extremely successful UK tours, The Hitman Blues Band is ready to expand into new markets throughout the US and Europe.
