    Dude, there aren’t any real rules about which instruments to use in current modern’ blues. Blues is about feel, so whatever feels right to you is the right modern blues band.Generally speaking, you’ll need a good vocalist, harp player, guitarist, drummer, bassist, and keyboard player. It really helps if two of the players are multi-instrumentalists, which enables you to re-shape your sound during sets.
