After developing several musical styles, such as rock, jazz or country, and after being in many different bands (Zaztada, Fucking What! , Doppler etc.) in 2005 Ibon Larrañaga and Asier Elorza created a new project.

Both shared similar musical tastes, thus, they returned to their origins forming "Belceblues". Soon, the drummer, Oihan Vega, joined the group. In July 2005 they offered their first concert.

Taking the blues as it fundamental base, "Belceblues" works on more powerful sounds and joins choirs in different voices. We could say that they mix the tendencies of black music with the characteristics of white music.

Live concerts not only include their own songs in both Basque and the English but they also adapt songs of great myths and symbols of the blues, such us Steve Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Hendrix, Jeff Healey.

After a year, Belceblues reached the finale of the popular competition "Danbaka" in the year 2007.

During 2007 they also composed and recorded the official song for the Basque festival "Kilometroak 2007", "Argi da".

Meanwhile, they've shared stage with a lot of groups such as Network House, Slackwater and Jack.

They have edited their first CD "Infer" with Gazteplupeko Hotsak Music Company (, the only company of Spain specialized in blues music.

In 2008, the song "Infer" has been nominated by The Spanish Art and Music Sciences of the Music Academy for the 13th Spanish Music Adwards, like the best song in basque of the year. At the end, Belceblues hasn't won the prize. Benito Lertxundi is the winner with his song "Mirotzak".

Recently, they have offered a concert in The International Festival of Blues of Getxo, sharing the stage whit the most mythical blues star of the world, like Lonnie Brooks, and Koko Tylor, but she died and they have to suspend the concert.
