Juke joint blues refers to a form of dance music that combines rhythm and blues and blues music, often played in the 1950s and 1960s (though not isolated to that era). The music tends to be rather heavy on the rhythm, and can encompass both quick and rather slow tunes. Below is a partial list of juke joint blues musicians.
