CUBY + BLIZZARDS, also known as CUBY & THE BLIZZARDS, were a Dutch blues group, founded in 1964 by vocalist HARRY MUSKEE and guitarist EELCO GELLING. During the 1960s, the band's mixture of sound, drawing upon a variety of genres which included blues and rock and roll, gave them a pioneering sound which was completely different from any other Dutch band in the same period.
From the start, they were a big hit in the Netherlands. Their 1966-debut DESOLATION got an EDISON AWARD.
In 1967 they toured with VAN MORRISON (after he left THEM), recorded an album, PRAISE THE BLUES with EDDIE BOYD and scored a top 10 hit in the Netherlands in 1968 with WINDOW OF MY EYES (also used over the ending credits for the 2010 film THE AMERICAN).
