A popular big blues party band founded some 15 years ago by Sir Jay Åsling and the rockn´roll saxophonist Jonas Palm. Both had a strong love for T-bone Walkers 40´s & 50´s music and therefore put together a fine group of hard swinging musicians with a genuine feel for this old style blues. The repertoire also consists of influences from people like BB King, Little Milton, Howling Wolf, Charlie Christian and Charlie Parker. Some originals from their well-received cd “Blues for Uncle Sam” are also included in the set list.
The band has toured several times in Scandinavia, Germany and The Czech Republic. Played hundreds of clubs and festivals: The Blues Baltica in Eutin, Germany, Prague international Jazz festival & Starapekarna blues club in Borno, Copenhagen Bluesfestival, Copenhagen Jazz house, Mönsterås, Åmål, Östersund, Eslöv, Tromsö, Trondheim. Oslo, Stampen Sthm 0 13 straight years at The Malmö Festival (Malmö Jazz House).
The band´s trademark is to play high energetic numbers spiced up with some crazy and spontaneous battles between Jay´s rough guitar and the hard riffing´ horn section – trading riffs in every tune.
A live show with this spontaneous and wild orchestra mean 100% showtime – everytime.
