The Chronic Blues Circus is the oldest Blues band in Bangalore and has been in existence since 1990. The band is best known for their original music, a natural clean sound and their unique arrangements. They are probably the only Blues band with four powerful vocalists that boast of completely different styles. They usually play their own compositions with a few tributes to some of the Blues masters who have influenced them – mostly white blues musicians and bands – like John Mayall, Paul Butterfield, The Climax Blues Band, Canned Heat, Cream, Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers band, J.J Kale, The Band, Guess Who, Big Brother & The Holding Company and a few black greats like Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Howling’ Wolf and Robert Johnson.

Woman, Sweet Nicotine, Prime time News 95 and Restless Woman are some of their early compositions from their 1996 album “Kali Yuga Blues”.
