Grateful Life is a blues rock band from the Franconian region Fürth-Erlangen in Germany.

Bluesrock

In the mid-19th century, protagonists like John Lee Hooker, Robert Lee Johnson, and Muddy Waters laid the foundation for today's blues. The original blues made the monotonous work on the cotton plantations more bearable and often involved love, longing and suffering. This great blues and especially the R'n'B of the sixties influence the music sustainably, even today. Grateful Life takes its program to the creative 60s and 70s. Classically electrified Chicago and Texas Blues with distinct rock influences. Although music from this time hardly gets along without a pinch of psychedelic.

Songs from the Woodstock Era[1] fit well into the prey scheme and are complemented with own compositions like Deep In The Heart, Around The Corner or Just For You.

The inspirations for their own pieces come from models of British and American blues rock. The musical roots of the boys can be traced back to representatives of the guild like The Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green, Rory Gallagher, Crosby Stills Nash & Young or the legendary The Cream.

Peter Green once wrote "Modern Electric Harmonic Blues", a description that fits also well for Grateful Life.

Band

After various changes of the members of the group since the band was founded in 2008, 2015 saw the birth of a new Grateful Life. In the new line-up, the band now plays as a classic power trio:

Fritz Mursch - vocals, guitar
Uwe Köhler - drums
Michael Tielemann - bass

Review

The club and open air concerts last year have been great fun, timeless blues interpretations but always find their lover.

Thanks to all who were there and for the many positive feedback.

More gigs are planned ... Grateful Life.
