CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Salvatore Amara & The Easy Blues Band


SALVATORE AMARA & THE EASY BLUES BAND is one of the most valuable Blues band born in Sardinia (the beautiful italian island in the Mediterranean sea), set up by Salvatore Amara between 1993 and 1994. From birth to now the band has suffered frequent changes to the line-up, allowing the rotation of many musicians. After many aftershocks, this is the new basic line-up formed by 5 musicians: Salvatore Amara (lead vocals, guitars and harp), Mauro Amara (keyboards, guitar and backing vocals), Paolo Demontis (harps and backing vocals), Paolo Flore (drums), Roberto Loi (bass and backing vocals), with the invaluable collaboration of Corrado Costa (keyboards) and Antonello Raccis (percussions), with great and involving live performances. The first goal was achieved with the victory in the regional competition at NARCAO BLUES Festival in 1995 (opening act for Andy J. Forest) and then the participation at the same Festival in 1996 (opening act for Ronnie Jones). Going in chronological order are reported participations at ROCCE ROSSE & BLUES Festival (Arbatax) in 1996, 1997 and 2007 (opening act for BB King, Jeff Haley, Peter Green and John Mayall). The first record in MC (1997) "WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE" was composed of original lyrics by Salvatore Amara and co-produced by his brother Mauro, who played on keyboards since the birth of the band. In the same year the band goes on a mini tour in Switzerland, participating as international guests at MUNCHWILEN BLUES Festival (Canton St. Gallen, Zurich), obtaining the consent of the critics. In 1999 the band won the 1st edition of the UNDERGROUND BLUES Festival in Quartu S.E. (opening act for Jack Evans & John Higgs and Herbie Goins). Every night the band is a triumph of Blues and a success. The press, TV, radio and all those fans of the genre have always actively participated in the live shows of the band, which sometimes lasted for up to 4 consecutive hours, in the historical locals of Cagliari. Between July and August 2011 the band recorded the CD “BACK TO THE BLUES” contains 11 original tracks composed by Salvatore Amara. The album has been recorded at GREEN STUDIO in Quartu S.E., by the sound engineer Ignazio Nessy Marcia, and it is available on internet, in particular on Amazon and i tunes stores. On december the Band play as supporter of Jono Manson at “METZCAL Music Club” in Cagliari (Sardinia). Write on our Facebook Wall or post your Photos of great blues events! Here
