Latvian musicians performing in Riga

Would like to have recommendations of local musical artists and their style of music. Listen to all genres of music, and hope to see a couple of shows during my stay. Rock, jazz, blues, folk or anything else of interest.

Many of the restaurants and bars had local musicians of all genres. On each end of Tirgonu Iela there were bars with live music. One had some very good blues musicians (by the silver sparkley sculpture) several nights but changed bands and style during our stay. Some of the restaurants and bars had signs indicating the band and the night they would be performing, including Lido Alus Seta (in the middle of Tirgonu Iela) and Folkklub Ala - Smilsu Iela 16 (basement) www.folkklubs.lv

If you can ever catch the Latvian Blues Band, they are absolutely fantastic, playing at Bites Blues Club on Dzirnavu Street quite often. Also have a look round the bars and restaurants as especially at the weekends there are lots of bands playing.

The Latvian Blues Band was the name of the band. Thanks for the memory jog! They were excellant!

Enjoyed seeing JT Lauritsen of Norway playing zydeco accordion with the Latvian Blues Band at the Bites Blues Club! A great show. The LVB completed in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis a couple years ago and guitar great Duke Robillard has produced their new CD. Check it out.
