Interstate Blues


If you like straight ahead 70's style blues based hard rock with heavy drums, solid bass and screaming guitars then this is the band for you! Formed by Jamie Purpora (guitar,vocals), Jeremy Crowther (drums) in Los Angeles in 1995. The idea? Go back to the blues to re learn the roots of rock and roll (which most of our contemporaries have missed). And then evolve back to the hard rock we loved growing up! Interstate Blues have released eleven albums "Let It Go" (1996), "Interstate Blues" (1997), "Velvet" (1998), "Southern Lips" (2000), "White Lightning" (2003), "El Diablo" (2005),  "Redemption" (2007), "Redux" (2009), "Red Was The Sky" (2010) “Two Thousand Miles Away” (2013) and "Dragon Lady" (2016). With each release the songs and sound get more refined. Between 1995 and 2018 Interstate Blues have played over to two hundred shows in the Los Angeles area. From The Whisky A Go Go to The Roxy to The Mint to The 1650 Club to The Viper Room to Skinny's Lounge just to name a few.  

Interstate Blues CD's are available now @ and the itunes music store!
