With band members who’ve played alongside Maggie Bell, Keith Relf, Jim McCarty, Barbara Dickson and toured with The Strawbs and Pino Palladino, this is a tight, experienced band, fronted by a singer capable of subtle, emotional twists as well as the ability to belt out a foot-stomping anthem when required. Blues you can get your teeth into!
