are a powerful six piece band based in and around Preston in the
North-West and what you get is a classic valve driven back line
driven with shuffle and roll. Their music is heavily based on
the rapturous electric blues guitar sound that emanated from
Chicago in the ’50s and ’60s. Influences range from B.B. King,
Freddy King, Muddy Waters, Maceo Parker, Peter Green, Booker T,
King Curtis etc. Basically, if music has that screwed down
ambient live feel expressed by some of these guys, then it'll be
on the playlist.
Paul Melville vocals, Colin Black guitar and harmonica, Boyd
Tonner drums and vocals, Simon Anthony Dixon on sax’s, Cameron
Sweetnam on bass, with newcomer Ant Scapens lead guitar making
up the formidable six.
Seeing the band is an experience not easily forgotten as they
are all about the exciting, live Chicago style Rhythm & Blues.
What better reference could any band have than this - 'Man
this band’s so good I wanna take ‘em over to America with me.’
- Lazy Lester"
