Emil Rutiku Blues Band (EST)

Emil Rutiku on laiemalt tuntud energilise saate- ja õhtujuhi, näitleja ja kodanikuühiskonna aktivistina, kuigi tema karjääri teljeks on alati olnud muusika. Emil on laulnud 30 aastat ansamblis Compromise Blue ja osalenud lugematutes muudes muusikaprojektides. Rämehäälse ja äärmiselt karismaatilise show-mehena on teda võrreldud Tom Waitsi, Howlin’ Wolfi, Omar Dykesi ja isegi James Browniga. Emil Rutiku Blues Band on Emili enda sõnul justkui aktiivse puhkuse vorm. See on põhjus saada sõpradega kokku ja tegeleda sellega, mis meeldib. Bändi koosseisu kuuluvad Emil Rutiku – laul, Raul Ukareda – kitarr, Argo Toomel – bass, Ülo Krigul – klahvpillid ja Peep Kallas – trummid.

Emil Rutiku is mostly known as an energetic host, actor and society activist, even though the center of his career has always been music. Emil has been singing for 30 years in Compromise Blue and been a part of countless other music projects. Having a rough voice and the essence of a charismatic showman, Emil has often been compared with Tom Waits, Howlin’ Wolf, Omar Dykes and even James Brown. For Emil, this project is an active way of spending free time and taking time off. It is a reason to gather with good friends and do what they love to do. The members of the band are Emil Rutiku – vocals, Raul Ukareda – guitar, Argo Toomel – bass guitar, Ülo Krigul – keyboards and Peep Kallas – drums.
