Code Blue is a high energy bluegrass band playing everything from the standard traditional bluegrass music and four part gospel music, to doing their own music and doing it their way. Although a relatively new presence in the Tidewater Virginia area, Code Blue puts in the hard work — and has the individual experience and desire — to provide the polish and cohesiveness usually seen in much more seasoned ensembles. This band has dedicated itself to providing quality music in a hard driving, entertaining way. Code Blue performs high-energy bluegrass from the rock solid traditionals to their own arrangements and original music, and derives the drive and intensity of their music from the long experience and dedication of the band members. The band is very fortunate to have three great singers who sing all the parts and take the time to make the vocals work.
Formed in the late summer of 1996, Code Blue has performed at numerous festival events and private functions, performing with groups like Dr. Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys, Earl Scruggs and Marty Stewart, Joe Diffie, Charlie Waller and the Country Gentleman, III Thyme Out, The Seldom Scene, The James King Band, J. D. Crowe and The New South, Little Roy Lewis and the Lewis Family, The Reno Brothers, The Strangers, Larry Sparks, The Steven's Sisters, The Churchman, Michelle Nixon and Drive, and Nothin' Fancy, just to name a few.
