We do a lot of originals, and the covers we do are pretty eclectic. We cover some standard blues (Let The Good Times Roll, Down Home Blues, You Don't Have To Go, Easy, Stormy Monday, Mystery Train); some jazz (All Blues, Misty, Don't Get Around Much Anymore - but it's the Big Walter version, so that's more of a blues tune); some soul (Midnight Hour, Rainy Night In Georgia, Soul Man, What I'd Say); some funk (Gonna Take You Higher, Real Mother For Ya); some rock (Long Train Running, Money, The Twist, Good Golly Miss Molly).

It's a pretty interesting and varied mix, and the audiences sure like it. A couple of years ago Bill Wax from XM radio saw us at a show and told me that it doesn't matter that we cover Mustang Sally (the song all blues bands hate to do) because, "You had 200 people dancing to it!" (or something like that). We definitely get the butts shaking when we play.

After listening to your video, your band would rock the juke with the song. The only version I have heard was buy T-Bone Walker and Gatemouth Brown, it is a real "make their butts move and shake" tune. I am trying to talk our band into doing it, but they want to work on more slow pieces.

I live in a gang infested part of town and these fools have made me laugh so many times. Idiots. They are just imitating the images they see on their favorite hip hop disc's.

Bad? My dear old chap, he looked positively dreadful.

Never quite understood how walking round like a badly dressed 4 year old is supposed to impress people. How on earth are you supposed to look "good" when you keep having to grab your trousers? And sorry to tell the wearers, the knee length crotch just looks like you've had an accident. really.

Actually had one young woman stand up in the library as I was walking through, and I damn near saw the lot face on because she was standing up but her jeans and knickers stayed put. She only just got them back in place in time.
