A blues band, that consists of musicians who have the Blues in their hearts. Musicality and open minds is what makes the band warm and comfortable.

The Bluesbirds is a Greek Blues Band founded by John Kozatsas (guitar, vocals) and John Loverdos (guitar) in 2009. The two Johns (friends since 1st grade) were members of The Bluebirds – a popular Rock band in the early 70s in Greece. Both JK & JL have been playing the blues since the late 60s and when they revived the band it was only natural to name it The Bluesbirds. Regular band members are: Takis Liarmakopoulos (drums), Andreas Gomozias (vocals, guitar), Pantelis Vassileiou (bass) and Nikos Damoulianos (vocals, keyboards). Past and special guest members and forever friends: Thodoros Tryfonas (vocals, bass), Pantelis Petridis (keyboards), Lefteris Tzimas, Andreas Metallidis (bass), Didi Panagiotou (vocals), Evi Sakellari (vocals), Mr. Stavros Daktylas (drums), Tasos Fotodimos, Kostas Gretsos (bass), Yvette Jarvis (vocals), Giorgina Karahaliou (vocals), Para Aliza Demosten (vocals), Renate Ellefsen Gjernes (vocals), Angel Aggeliki (vocals), George Ahas Lignos (keyboards), John Psomopoulos (guitar), George Kozatsas (drums, vocals) and Thanassis Safaris (sax, vocals).
The band covers mainly electric blues artists including BB King, Elmore James, Otis Rush, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy as well as the next generations including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, The Allman Brothers, Joe Bonamassa, Warren Haynes and many more.
Their love and devotion for the music including rock, blues and most other connected genres, lead the two Johns to create The Bluesbirds as an open platform – rather than a classical ‘band’ – for anybody who is interested in furthering this endeavour, especially young people who want to learn about the blues, practice with experienced musicians and proper instruments and play with The Bluesbirds in real gigs. This effort has already shown very promising results especially with young musicians.
For the older members and for most of the friends and fans, The Bluesbirds is the absolute therapy where we enjoy the music and have tons of fun! We normally play 1-2 gigs per month mainly in Athens, Greece although we do travel when we are invited. We really hope you like our page and that you will participate to make it better.
