Long Island may not be where you think of first when it comes to The Blues, but its impact on the genre was far reaching. The 110 mile long Long Island blues scene was one of the most incredible and fantastic musical experiences in America. From the early 1960's through the 1990's people went to music clubs to hear the blues. Long Island was home to many of the top blues musicians who had fans from all over. These great musicians were known worldwide and Long Island was their home base. Back in the day, fans would follow them weekly from club to club and their popularity grew worldwide.
