Biography

We are The COMMANDMENTS Blues Band.

We're on a mission to spread the word and that word is MUSIC.

Music with Heart and Music with Soul!

 


The COMMANDMENTS are a busy, 'heads-up', 7-piece Soul Band, based in the London area. Although not a tribute band, we have taken the look and sound of Jake and Elwood Blues as our starting point. We are very much a live band and our infectious toe-tapping set list will have you and even the most reserved of your guests, out of their seats and dancing to songs they had forgotten they knew and remembered they loved!

 

Founded in 1997 by bass guitarist Chris Gasiorek, The COMMANDMENTS have gone from strength to strength. During the past 18 years we have performed in a wide variety of venues including pubs, clubs, schools, hotels and Summer Carnivals. As well as performing at high profile university and corporate functions, such as Imperial College London Medic's Summer Ball, West Of England Insurance Xmas Party and The London Irish Motor Club, we are also in demand for private functions such as weddings, engagements and birthdays. The band is also committed to the community and often performs at local charity events.

 

The COMMANDMENTS line up of experienced musicians not only perform all the big hit songs from the Blues Brothers and Commitments films, but also incorporate into their show a variety of well-known soul classics and pop hits of the 50's and 60's including songs by Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, James Brown, Sam & Dave, Wilson Picket, Eddie Floyd, Otis Reading, Al Green and the Beatles.

 


With the Commandments' undeniable mix of great music, we can Blues up your Bar Mitzvah, add soul to your Summer Ball or Rock out your Retirement party!
