Dressed in black jeans, black shirts with a blue tie,
BlueGem are often referred to as a band with catchy music, and an energetic performance. In the early years, 2006-2009, they played mostly local venues, but also some memorable shows in the capitol. They had a couple of TV performances but no serious releases until 2010, when they released The BlueGem EP 2010 (5 tracks),
which was a straight forward punk rock EP with a raw expression. Their messages were about the injustice of war, big questions about life and freedom.

In 2013 they recorded what became their biggest hits;
Dead Quiet, and Music for You. In 2015, they decided to take a break and after four years of hiatus, the band had their final show and officially spilt in 2019.
