In spring 1997 the two devoted â€žBluesbrothersâ€œ, Cla and Jachen C. Nett, met Fabio Bianchi and Andy Lang at a Jam-Session at a local bar of their hometown. They soon realized that they all had similar ideas and concepts about the sort of music they wanted to play. They had listened to the same records and songs, had visited the same concerts, and had thus developed the same feeling for music. The heat was on from the start and the four Blues-fans decided to found the band Blues NETTwork and play the Blues.
Cla Nett was founder, band-leader and guitar player of the Lazy Poker Bluesband and has been an important and well-known figure in the Swiss Blues Scene for over 30 years. For his commitment he received the Swiss Blues Award in April 2004.
His brother Jachen Nett enhances the formation with his unique mastering of the harp. He has played in many local bands and projects apart from his short engagement with the Lazy Poker Bluesband.
Percussionist and drummer Andy Lang and tuba player Fabio Bianchi have collected enriching experiences in many Rock and Blues bands in the area. With their rather special choice of instruments they guarantee the unique sound of Blues NETTwork.
The NETTwork lowplugged-electroacoustic-Mississippi-swamp-trash-Blues is a musical mixture of Delta Blues, Cajun and Country, flavored with the clear tunes of Chicago Blues, Swing and Rockâ€™nâ€™Roll. For the four Blues lovers it was clear from the start that they didnâ€™t want to be just another cover formation. They wanted a style of their own. By reducing their music to mostly acoustic instruments, interpreting non-standard songs and composing songs of their own, Blues NETTwork developed a musical concept that doesnâ€™t fit into any cluster. And besides, Blues NETTwork is an experienced live band and always ready to thrill an audience. From disco and dance freaks to elder Dixie cats, everybody falls for the unique sound of Blues NETTwork.
