Depot Acoustic Blues Band

Return to Previous Page

This Manchester-based acoustic trio perform a classic mix of blues, old and new. Presenting songs that relate timeless stories, from the light-hearted to the profoundly moving, they are surprisingly versatile, playing an unusual range of melodic instruments to create their unique sound.

“This talented trio will bring the characteristic flavour of rural America to any event!”

With a classic rootsy acoustic sound topped by impressive vocals, Depot will transport you to those smoky 1970s blues clubs. Double-bass sets the rhythm while stylish guitar adds its characteristic American texture. Harmonica lends the topline a real down home flavour, with flute or even uilleann pipes occasionally included to give the band a truly original sound.

Individually, the musicians in the band enjoy enviable reputations all across the North West – but are ultimately at their best when collaborating! Although happy to perform completely acoustically if required, Depot can provide a high-quality PA system to enhance and amplify their music.

If it’s an authentic delivery style and unencumbered, natural, acoustic performance you’re after, Depot Acoustic Blues Band tick all the boxes!

  • Authentic, rootsy traditional blues
  • Often perform acoustically, but also bring an excellent PA



Depot perform a comprehensive range of classic Blues standards largely drawn from the 20th-century repertoire, and will also play requests.


  1. Tony & Jennifer’s Work Party

    A huge thank-you to Depot for playing our work party. Mat and the band were helpful and unobtrusive with great musicianship and really made our evening.

  2. Andy Smith’s Bar Performance

    Full of good humour and remarkably good blues music, we would definitely recommend Depot to any other blues lovers.
