Who Is Agape Blues Company?
Established in 2012, the Agape Blues Company is the premier Gospel Blues band serving the New York capital region.
Music Style: Our music style would be classified as a mix of Chicago and Texas style blues. We play many original songs along with classic blues songs with modified lyrics to bring a message of joy and hope. We have also taken many well known hymns and “bluesified” them into what we call “Barrelhouse Hymns.”
Ministry Focus: The Agape Blues Company's focus is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through our music. Through this focus, we have performed in a large variety of venues including; bars, coffeehouses, homeless shelters, outdoor picnics, music festivals, parking lots, adult care facilities, and churches from Whitehall, New York south as far as Columbia, South Carolina and west as far as Sturgis, South Dakota.

Awards: The Agape Blues Company was the recipient of the 2016 Capital District Music Award for “Best Inspirational Group”. Scott also was graciously recognized as a Great Blues Artist in the New York State Blues Hall of Fame in 2019.
