Royal Blues Machine was founded in San Diego, California in 2009 by guitarist Rob Ransom with a mission to merge the best of American and British electric blues. With influences stretching from Robert Johnson through Freddie King to Kenny Wayne Shepherd, RBM showcases a wide range of blues styles.

In 2014 the original RBM disbanded and Rob moved to Hilton Head Island, SC. The new East Coast reincarnation of Royal Blues Machine features some great musicians including acclaimed vocalist Greg Maynard, with a killer rhythm section made up of drummer Anthony Heiter and bassist Eddie Boys.  Royal Blues Machine is bringing the blues to the Low Country, 12 bars at a time!
