Connor Lee & The Blu 3
(18/12/18 Onstage 10.30pm - 11pm)

"My Name is Connor Lee and we are the Blu-3. We are a Reading-based Rock ‘n’ Roll trio. 

Our influences range from Blues artists such as Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, to punk rockers like The Stooges and the Ramones. 
In our sound there’s something old, something new, and something Blu.

Previously we have been a cover band, but on the 18th of December 2018 at Smokin’ Billy’s, we will be showcasing our original material for the first time live. These tracks will be accompanied by a few blues standards many of you will know. We’re itching to turn the amps up to full and get grooving, and everybody moving to the beat. Anyways, we’ll let the music speak for itself. Don’t miss the Blu-3 at Smokin Billy’s on the 18/12/18!
