Formed in 2005, the Gloucester Blues Project is a four-piece blues-rock band from KwaZulu-Natal known for a solid repertoire that ranges from background blues, to upbeat classics. Appearing on stages from KZN to the Okavango Delta (and even in the occasional cowshed – ask them about it), the band is known for their energetic, lengthy sets. They draw influences from early blues pioneers like Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson, electric guitar gods Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix, and more rock-based outfits like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.

The Gloucester Blues Project plays regularly in KwaZulu-Natal and has enjoyed performing with the likes of Dan Patlansky, Southern Gypsey Queen and Josie Field. The band has represented the blues at major South African festivals including Splashy Fen, the Durban International Blues Festival, and the Royal Show in Pietermaritzburg. They have occupied stages at a host of smaller music venues across South Africa, as well as toured to Botswana twice where they were joined on stage by local singer Robyn Tompkins.

The band has also performed in tribute shows dedicated to popular musical icons Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Rolling Stones. These shows were very well received, with audiences demanding repeat performances.

The Gloucester Blues Project is Mark McTaggart (bass + vocals), John Goodall (rhythm guitar and vocals), Andrew Dickinson (lead guitar), and Ian Dickinson (drums).
