Bees Deluxe biography

Hell-bent on their mission to bring the blues into the 21st century, Bees Deluxe pushes the limits, colors outside the lines of convention and bends the genre to create a sound that is distinct, highly musical and yet deeply respectful of the blues tradition.

Fronted and founded by British guitarist Conrad Warre, the band’s repertoire includes addictive originals (most composed by Warre) as well as fresh takes on tunes by artists ranging from Billie Holiday to Jimi Hendrix. Bees Deluxe has toured from Maine to Miami winning fans, amazing audiences and sharing the stage with headliners like: Ronnie Earl, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Mike Zito, Walter Trout, Joanna Connor, Matt Schofield, Roomful of Blues and David Maxwell.


With the ability to play as a full four-piece, trio or duo, Bees Deluxe features the virtuoso guitar work and smoky vocals of Warre with Carol Band on keys, harp and vocals, and Paul Giovine on drums and percussion. Each musician brings their own musical background and sensibility to the group and they share the spotlight on stage.

Conrad Warre was in a high school band with Paul Kossoff, of the band Free. He toured Europe with Joe Jackson and The English Beat then moved from London to New York where he became a fixture on the stage at the legendary CBGB’s. In Boston, he formed Bees Deluxe to celebrate the music he fell in love with while touring and playing legendary London clubs like Rainbow Theatre, Ronnie Scott's, Dingwalls, The Music Machine and the Moonlight Club. Before forming Bees Deluxe he was Production Manager for Rykodisc the first music audio CD company in the States where he worked directly with Frank Zappa, Yoko Ono, Richard Thompson, David Bowie, Mickey Hart and others. 

Carol Band is a classically trained pianist who was recruited while playing jazz in Boston’s club scene. She also writes tunes and wows audiences with her blazing harmonica solos.

Paul Giovine studied at Berklee College of Music and cut his chops playing rock and punk with The Darling Picassos and Trick Wallace in clubs and festivals all over the states. He is also a contemporary songwriter in his own right.

Bridging the chasm between the discerning connoisseur and casual blues fans, Bees Deluxe is equally adept at filling a dive bar dance floor or commanding a festival stage.

With a contagious enthusiasm, sense of fun and impeccable musicality, Bees Deluxe breaks all the rules and the blues are better for it.



Bees Deluxe: “...what might happen if Freddie King took a lot of acid then wrote a song with Pat Metheny and asked a strung-out Stevie Ray Vaughan to take a solo” — Blues Blast Magazine


"Hallucinate is one of those albums that come along very infrequently, a complete outline of musical genius, songs that have substance not only individually, but as an entire album"

 — Joseph Timmons Indie Pulse Reviews
