Bostonís most eclectic acid blues band, Bees Deluxe, created and hosts Bluesapocalypse, an annual benefit for the Arlington Center for the Arts. For the past two years, Bluesapocalypse has attracted hundreds of music fans who are lucky enough to score tickets to this sold-out event.

This year, after the second encore, a fan slipped the sound engineer a bootleg recording of their entire performance, and itís in the spirit of sharing that this CD was created.

Bees Deluxe, led by guitarist & vocalist Conrad Warre, explore acid blues, rock and Blue Note era jazz and mixes original tunes with their own take on Billie Holiday, J.B. Lenoir, Joe Zawinul, Amy Winehouse, the Meters, Miles Davis, Robben Ford and Etta James.
