The Junkhousedog Blues Band [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

The Junkhouse Dog Blues Band 1

Junkhousedog is a Manchester based Blues band founded and fronted by ‘British Blues Harmonica Champion 2008/09’ Luke ‘Junkhousedog’ Shaw. Luke is a dynamite singer and front man. The energy that sparks off him, igniting the room as he plays, is contagious. He is a true harp heavyweight!

Junkhousedog mixes steamy shuffles and eclectic swing, with true vintage Chicago style grit. For them, the usual ‘Blues standard’ and ‘formulae’ does not apply.

Imagine if you will, catching a night out to watch a live band and walking into a joint where the atmosphere is literally jumpin’ ‘n’ hot, with an audience that looks like its shoelaces have caught fire! Like their heroes, the band’s honking tone drives the music like an express train steaming through the mid Western plains, making everyone who witnesses it stop in their tracks.

Welcome to the world of Junkhousedog, the Power of Blues!
