Edmonton Blues Festival 2022

Recollection Blues Band

Recollection Blues Band (RBB)

RBB serves up vintage blues like a steamy plate of gumbo on a hot porch Saturday afternoon in Clarksville.

This collective of five talented musicians defies the ordinary, taking their uniquely swampy sound – a fusion of electric delta and rootsy Memphis Stax – to a whole new level.

Front-man Marv Gemmell and bass player Harris Christian were members of the original RBB when it formed in 2000. The Edmonton, Alberta-based band has seen a couple of configurations since then, releasing a self-titled CD in 2001 that was well received, both locally and internationally. The band released its second CD on Sept. 20, 2008, Stone Angel Tombstone, a recording they're proud of, featuring five new originals by Gemmell.

RBB will keep you in the grips of its voodoo magic, from the first twang of Marv’s Gibson 335 to the last soulful note from Geralds keyboard.

If you’re not dancing, you’re dreaming of gumbo.
