Collin Campbell & the C-Notes

Prepare to gear up rather than gear down when The C-Notes hit the stage!  From the musically rich Twin Cities music scene, The C-Notes are a band of brothers who embody the bright future of hard driving rocking blues. The C-Notes are built around the precocious guitar playing and vocals of Collin Cambell.   Big brother Cameron plays bass and 14 year old Evan mans the drums.  Whether the three brothers are playing rock, straight up blues or something in between, they have been playing together since they were old enough to pick up and plug in.  Their tastes and influences range from Robert Johnson and Hound Dog Taylor to Jack White and The Black Keys.  Hands on mentoring from the likes of guitar masters Jimi Prime Time Smith and Scott Holt have left an indelible mark.  The C-Notes play with an intensity and maturity well beyond their years. In addition to playing, The C-Notes have worked diligently to spread the Blues gospel among the youth of Minnesota.  Step one was the successful launch of a camp and organization called Blues U which links young musicians, established pros and local venues to provide training and opportunities.   In a very short two years Colin, Evan and Cameron Campbell have played a pivotal role in a remarkable resurgence of young Twin Cities musicians discovering, connecting and playing the blues.
