How to tell the difference between Blues & Rock.
Like you don't really know.  From

  1. If the guitar player has one small amplifier, Blues Band. 
    If he has a stack of them, Rock Band.
  2. If the keyboard player only plays piano or organ, Blues Band. 
    If he's uses other sounds, Rock Band.
