Close your eyes and you could be back in Ferriday Louisiana c1956 listening to Ol’ Killer himself! On top of that, he’s got a fine set of lungs on him and has been known to drive female members of any audience to distraction when he plays his organ. I’m gonna do ya a little boogie on this here piana.
Chris Todd – guitar & vocals: “Needs more carbs” – a phrase rarely used to describe Todd’s approach to fitness and diet. Another (even younger) veteran, he’ll have to buy a new guitar one day but is intent on wringing a few more years out of his trusty electric blue Strat. A genuine lover of all things R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll, you’d be hard pressed to find a Chuck Berry or Albert King riff he hasn’t lifted note for note. All said and done, he’s as authentic as any Chicago blues player and singer this side of Bolton.
Other Band Members
Julian Latimer – The Carbs bass player: Helping to considerably reduce overall weight of the band is our newest member, Julian. Hailing from Bury way, he is well-known to many on the circuit as one of our best bass players around. A wealth of experience in blues and rock playing has meant a string of seamless performances from the word go. Next time you come to see us, ask nicely and we’re sure he’ll serve up one of his funky solos – not to be missed!
Drumbags – drums: Pretty much a permanent fixture these days, DB provides as solid a platform you could wish for. A complex character, everyone who meets him remembers him – just unfortunate that he can’t say the same! Anyway, we’re certainly enjoying his rock steady back beat on the old “Pearl Studio”.
