BLUES CARGO is an electric Blues Band that was formed back in 1987 in Athens by :http://bluesway.gr/forum/3

DIMITRIS IOANNOU (bass guitar, vocals)

STELIOS ZAFIRIOU (Guitar)

STELIOS GAVRILIDES (Drums)

STELIOS ZOUZOULAS (Guitar).

The Band has been playing regularly for more than 24 consecutive years all over Greece and has gained the

respect and the admiration of all the Greek and European blues fans. Their shows continue to massively attract

blues audiences regardless of age and gender who consider them as one of the best Blues Bands in Europe.

Besides being an extremely tight band that delivers scorching blues guitar solos and a very wide spectrum of

blues arrangements, the trade mark of the band is the unprecedented voice of the singer and bass player of Blues

Cargo, Mr. Dimitris Ioannou and the fine and emotional guitar paying of Stelios Zafeiriou.

Many famous American artists have been backed up by the Blues Cargo during their appearances in Greece. Some

of them are:

LOUISIANA RED, LURRIE BELL, BIG TIME SARAH, EDDIE C. CAMPBELL, GUITAR SHORTY, LEFTY DIZZ, BYTHER

SMITH, ANGELA BROWN, LOVIE LEE, JEAN CAROLL, MAXINΕ HOWARD, UP-WILSON, SWEET BETTY, JIMMY

MORELLO, JAN HARRINGTON, BLIND MISSISIPI MORRIS, JUKE,MICHAEL DOTSON,JOLLY JUMPER & BIG MOE, and

 The band has also opened the shows of JOHN MAYAL, JOHN HAΜMOND, NICK GRAVENITES, BIG TOWN PLAYBOYS,

and FERNEST ARCENAUX in Greece.

 

 

 

 

 

By the end of 1992, they had recorded a number of original tunes which were finally released on a vinyl LP in 1993, by Pegasus Records.

The album was titled “FIRST DELIVERY” and received very good reviews.
