There are at least four music groups with name Blue Monday:
1.) Melodic Straight Edge band from Vancouver BC Canada
2.) Minimalist electro/noise project from Slovakia formed in 2001
3.) A band of veteran musicians from Central NY (who sometimes open for THE RODS) - see http://www.bluemondayband.com
4.) BLUE MONDAY BLUESBAND http://www.bluemonday.info/Biography.html
With the intention of doing a one-time gig with a bluesband at a local jam session Blue Monday was formed.
The audience, as well as the bluesband members themselves were enthusiastic. So, we decided to continue this bluesband; and we did. After a few months of rehearsal on songs by Guy Forsyth, Tommy Castro, ZZ TOP, Mark Ford and many other bluesbands, Blue Monday managed to come up with a varied program.
In the past couple of years, Blue Monday has done several gigs in the Dutch blues-scene like, Nixx Bluesclub Enschede, Down Town Gemert, the opening act for Barrelhouse in "de Pul" in Uden, Bluestour in Cuijk, "Drijf in" Bluesfestival in Giethoorn, BLAST Blues in Asten, and many, many more……
In 2004 some of the Blue Monday musicians did a "minitour" with the "modern day Blues Queen" Miss Dede Priest from Austin Texas
The most important thing for the Blue Monday bluesband is to have a lot of fun "Playing the Blues" while entertaining the audience with an evening of "Rocking Rhythm & Blues"!!!
