The Valparaiso, Indiana-based group are favorites at Legends, where the club's namesake, Buddy Guy, joined them onstage for a few songs last May at the CD Release Party for their critically-acclaimed "Once Upon A Time In The South Loop."
The Planetary Blues Band also perform at the Big Dawg On My Trail Blues Festival on Saturday, July 12 in Richmond, Indiana.
Planetary (the nickname they’re known by) and Once Upon A Time In The South Loop were recipients of year-end honors including the #7 spot on The Sunday Night Blues Project (“an attractive abundance of energy and talent and plenty of chops. This CD showcases a band on the way up.”); a "Top 10 Regional Albums of 2013” pick by Northwest Indiana Times’ music critic, Tom Lounges (“there have been few, if any, Northwestern Indiana groups who have steadily progressed and impressed as the Schaefer-Murray brothers who, as The Planetary Blues Band, have evolved into a rock solid unit.”); and ”Future of the Blues – Class of 2013” pick as selected by Blues Underground.
