The Juke Joint Devils play an energetic, swinging blues that isn’t heard much these days. It’s a foot-stomping, hip-shaking genre that harkens back to that swampy, riffy, rocky sound people heard it noisy bars.
These guys take you back to a time when small house bands played from the soul, on real instruments, could swing like crazy, and anything could happen on stage. The Juke Joint Devils play a mix of West Coast and Chicago Blues, with a bit of spice from New Orleans and elsewhere. The band features International Blues Challenge finalists Tommy O’Connell on harp and vocals, Mike Murphy on drums, Gerry Burn on standup bass and George Stanboulidis on guitar.
