Grateful Life

Blues Rock from the Franconian


In the mid-20th century, protagonists like John Robert Lee Johnson, Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters laid the foundation for today's (electric) blues. The original (delta) blues made the monotonous work on the cotton plantations more bearable and often involved love, longing and suffering. This great blues and especially the R'n'B of the 60s influence the music sustainably, even today.

Grateful Life builds on the creative 60s and 70s. Her passion is the classically electrified Chicago and Texas blues with distinct rock influences. Although music from this time hardly gets along without a pinch of psychedelic. Own compositions such as Deep In The Heart, Around The Corner, In This Bar or Just For You merge on their concerts with motifs from the early days of blues rock and the Woodstock era [1].

The musical roots of the three guys can be traced back to representatives of the guild like The Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green, Rory Gallagher, Crosby Stills Nash & Young or the legendary The Cream.

Peter Green once wrote "Modern Electric Harmonic Blues", a description that fits well for Grateful Life.


After various changes of the members of the group since the band was founded in 2008, 2015 saw the birth of a new Grateful Life. In the new line-up, the band now plays as a classic power trio:

Fritz Mursch Vocal, Guitar
Uwe Köhler Drums
Michael Tielemann Bass


The club and open air concerts last year were great fun, timeless blues interpretations but always find their lovers. Thanks to all who were there and for the many positive feedback.

More concerts are planned ... Grateful Life.
