Thursday 27 June TRIBUTE TO MEMPHIS SLIM

This unique-in-the-world tribute to one of the blues giants has been given the thumbs up by Peter Chatman, the son of Memphis Slim, and has been performed at The Royal Albert Hall, The Boisdale, Canary Wharf and was a huge success when previously performed at The Eel Pie Club in 2017and 2018.
The band features Eric Ranzoni who you may have seen playing wonderful keyboards with Mud Morganfield (son of Muddy Waters), plus Pete Pritchard on bass, who has played with, among others, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Alvin Lee and Elvis Presley's original guitarist, Scotty Moore.  On guitar is Mal Barclay of The Cadillac Kinks, and on drums, George Hart.
This tribute was inspired by Eric Ranzoni's meeting in Paris with drummer Michel Denis and pianist Jean-Paul Amouroux who both played with Memphis Slim during his French years, later in his life.

Zoot Money has been a formidable contributor to the British music scene maintaining a career as a classic RnB singer and keyboard player.
He began his early career fusing RnB with jazz when he teamed up with guitarist Andy Summers (Police), tenor sax player Nick Newall and drummer Colin Allen to form The Big Roll Band, bringing a fresh sound to the RnB scene.  Since his arly days with Alexis Korner, Zoot has featured with The Animals and the Alan Price Band plus its offshoot, The Electric Blues Company.  In recent years he's played in partnership with (amongst many others), Spencer Davis and the late Dick Heckstall-Smith, as well as Georgie Fame and Mick Taylor.  Zoot's songwriting credits include songs for Lulu and Long John Baldry, as well as Jimmy Witherspoon (It Never Rains But It Pours).  Zoot produced the Tutti Frutti album from the television series of the same name in 1985 - the show which launched the careers of Robbie Coltran and Emma Thompson.  More recently, Zoot produced Ruby Turner's album, 'Call Me By My Name' and Woodstock Taylor's debut CD Road Movie.
Alongside this rich and varied music caret, Zoot has regularly been sen on our television screens.  In addition to many commercials, he has appeared in Eastenders, Londons Burning, The Bill, The Professionals, The Piglet Files and Get Back (the BBC series that featured Ray Winstone in his only sitcom).

Thursday 8 August JOE JAMMER'S R&B EXPRESS

Joe is a man who makes every minute of his stage time count.  He's a born performer with an unbridled confidence that befits a career nurtured at the dawn of rock with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Who, and crossover funk band The Olympic Runners  Joe re-energises the kind of old school blues-soul review that has recently made heroes of bands like Vintage Trouble.  The difference is that he has lived the life, played with the best and still garners critical acclaim from the likes of Aerosmith's Joe Perry.

It is not difficult to see why, as his raw gut passion and real fervour is backed by a huge tenor voice coupled with judiciously stolen licks that are the basic tenets of a Chicago blues revue.

Joe Jammer breathes fresh life into classic Chicago blues with such passion, conviction, commitment and fun that every person in th room leaves with a spring in their step  It's the healing power of the blues in front of your very eyes, Joe Jammer style!

Thursday 22 August GENO WASHINGTON & THE YO YOS

Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man, enjoying cult status in soul, blues and Rnb, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live peformer.
A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.
In 1980, 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners.  Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!
Geno Washington & The Yo Yos features members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RnB and house rockin' blues.
Opening by guitarist/vocalist Peter Hammerton (formerly with The Others).

Thursday 5 September THE CADILLAC KINGS

The Cadillac Kings are going from strength to strength.  Their 2016 album 'The Secret of my Success' ended up on so many playlists that in 2 months it was voted one of the top 3 blues CDs of the year by the IBBA (along with Kaz Hawkins and Joe Bonamassa).  Throughout 2017, the CD continued to make inroads into US radio and one of the album tracks reached Number One in Cashbox Magazine's Blues & Boogie Chart, and stayed there for 4 weks, holding off acts such as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Primer, Coco Montoya, Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Samantha Fish etc.  The Cadillac Kings were the only UK act to figure in the chart during 2017.
2019 sees the band celebrating its 19th birthday, with the multi-talented Tim Penn on piano, accordion and vocals, Mal Barclay on guitar, Mike Thomas on vocals, Paul Cuff on double bass and Roy Webber on drums.
"Entertaining, authentic and infectious, The Cadillac Kings' high energy RnB is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale!" (Blues in Britain).

Thursday 26 September THE KAST-OFF KINKS (Rescheduled from 16 May)

The iconic British rock band, THE KINKS, is often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.  The Kast-Off Kinks is NOT A TRIBUTE BAND! The band contains 3 actual members of THE KINKS.  Original drummer, Mick Avory, who joined The Kinks (at that time still called The Ravens) in 1964, who is still regarded to this day as the backbone of the original Kinks, is joined by John Dalton, bassist with The Kinks from 1969 until the late '70's and keyboard player, Ian Gibbons, who was with The Kinks for 17 years and still plays and tours with Ray Davies.  By fans, Ian is regarded as the best keyboard player of The Kinks.  The fourth member and only non-Kink is Dave Clarke (ex Noel Redding Band) taking the place of the Davies brothers. http://kastoffkinks.co.uk.  Almost every other ex Kink has guested with the Kast-Off Kinks, including Ray Davies.
