I love bands that have that blues sounding element but do it in a more modern way. Black Keys, White Stripes, Blackwater Fever, Ben Harper & Relentless 7 etc.. However, it doesn't seem like there are too many bands like that. Can anyone tell me some good blues rock bands that I don't already know about? Looking for bands that can do some real riffy groove type stuff but who also push the sound, or make it dirtier like the black keys do. Any suggestions?

Joe Bonamassa, if you haven't already heard of him.

Check Gov't Mule out. If they don't blow your bluesrock socks off; nothing will.

Check out Clutch. They're a bit heavier than most of the bands you listed, but they're definitely bluesy (their recent work more so than the rest) and they can groove like nobody's business.
#14
Band of Skulls, they're a little more Garage Rock, but you might like them.

Check out Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Also Blues and Lasers, which is basically the same band minus Grace, but a bit more blues oriented.

Grace Potter is maybe my favorite female vocalist I've ever heard.

I just wish her stuff was a little more bluesy sometimes. When she sings with Gov't Mule or is doing covers, she's spectacular.

Still, I saw Grace Potter and the Nocturnals in concert last month touring for their new CD, and it was a really great show. Good band.

Feel free to call me Kyle.

Quote by Sir Anonymous
Left Lane Cruiser are kind of blues-y - like the White Stripes turned up to 11.


I second that.

Also if you heard of Blackwater Fever you should have heard The Fumes by now but if not check out The Fumes.

Also Dead Weather are kindsa bluesy < up for speculation...but definitely a very forward-thinking modernist band with clear blues influences. Jack White on drums.

All the others were pretty much covered now. North Mississippi All-Stars are excellent.

people actually like this kind of playing? **** me, i shat myself when the local newspaper called him a blues guitar prodigy. Sounds like he's missing the point to me

I am totally ready to lose my blues-cred here:

Paul Gilbert (And Jimi Kidd)'s Raw Blues Power album.
It might lean a bit more toward Rock 'n' Roll than blues, but if you ask me, it is a bitchin album.

Rocco Deluca (& The Burden)
Kind of an alt-blues-rock deal - I know that is a terrible description, think like Jeff Buckley and Dan Auerbach had a kid.

Beck has a few blues song, but if you are like pretty much everyone I have ever met you don't like Beck.

The Gun Club are kind of modern 80s and kind of blues. If you're a Jack White fan, he apparently quite likes the Fire Of Love record.

22-20s are blues influenced. I haven't been listening to them enough to be able to explain why I like them. They seem to draw on a bit of the mojo of the early electric blue, I guess.
