Since singer Harry Muskee and his band introduced the Netherlands to the blues in 1965, Cuby + Blizzards has become a household word in Dutch pop music. With their raw "polder" sound, they sold hundreds of thousands of albums in the sixties and the band was at its best performing live in smoky provincial halls. You are wrong if you thought the band from Drenthe would be slowing down by now. Although Cuby + Blizzards hasn't released an album for eleven years, the band members have been busy. After touring theaters with a tribute to the legendary blues artist John Lee Hooker in 2004, the recording itch began to grow in the band from Grollo. They went into the studio once more and the result was the album Cats Lost (2009) that went gold after just a few weeks. The performance at the North Sea Jazz will bring back fond memories for many blues fans.
