Supersonic Blues Machine is the ultimate Rock, Blues & Soul jam band!
An ever-evolving music community of friends and guests that’s aimed to bring the crowds a true “one of kind” music experience.

Supersonic Blues Machine consists of Kenny Aronoff (drums), Fabrizio Grossi (MD, Bass and backing vocals) and UK's Blues-Rock sensation Kris Barras (picking up lead vocals and guitar duties). Live, they will be joined by a long list of sidemen and special guests to continue the successful streaks of live Jam performances that has made the band one of the most exciting names in the Rock-Blues & Soul genres internationally.

After touring as the rhythm section of the jam band Goodfellas (side project of legendary guitarist Steve Lukather), Italian born Fabrizio Grossi, and New York native drumming legend Kenny Aronoff wanted to continue and expand the Goodfellas concept. Cementing their rhythmic chemistry with lots of live performances, and studio projects featuring recordings with artists such as Leslie West, Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Zakk Wylde, etc, their determination to create something more than just a “session ensemble for hire” grew exponentially.

It was when living legend Billy F. Gibbons (of ZZ TOP fame) contacted Fabrizio to collaborate on the writing/production of a song for an up-coming commercial, that all pieces came together. The song didn’t become a commercial after all, but the project was born. Kenny Aronoff immediately tracked drums to it, and the song “Running Whiskey” ended up becoming their first single. Several other legendary musicians such as Warren Haynes, Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Robben Ford, Walter Trout and Chris Duarte joined the party, very successfully narrated in the band first release.

The band’s first record, “West of Flushing, South of Frisco,” released 2016, was very well received by critics, media, and fans alike and over exceeded the band and the label’s expectations as well.

Taking on the road such a large flamboyant ensemble of talents, isn’t an easy task. However Supersonic Blues Machine have performed almost exclusively as a headliner at many of the world’s most prestigious festivals. Noticeable were the band's “legendary” performances at the Notodden Blues Festival 2016 and a “Take no Prisoner” Soul/Funk/Rocking Extravaganza at the 2017 edition of the Rambling Man Fair.

After hosting on stage iconic staple names such as Billy F. Gibbons, Steve Lukather, Jonny Lang, Walter Trout, Lucky Peterson, Robben Ford, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Shemekia Copland etc., Supersonic Blues Machine entered the studio to finalise its sophomore record, a California teamed monster house titled “Californisoul”. The record was released once again on Mascot/Provogue Worldwide on October 2017 debuting at #7 on the Billboard top 10 Blues Charts. Just like its predecessor, “Californisoul” has been featuring a lot of guest appearances by the band closest friends (this time with the addition of Steve Lukather) collecting unanimous boasting reviews from the press, great support from critics and fans worldwide, and its draw doesn’t seem to slow down
