and Yo Yo Blues
|Geno Washington is a genuine full-on cult hero… a legend on the 60’s Soul scene. He enjoys such status on the Soul, R&B and Northern Soul scenes, due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer. He is electrifying on stage and his love of performance (and of life!) makes him an inspiration, a joy to witness, and one of the greatest frontmen from the latter half of the 20th century. Geno has recently played to a sell out audience as part of the Lord’s Taverners annual charity event at The Albert Hall. And this summer Geno has been picked to play as the main act at The Royal Festival Hall end of run party for Ray Davies’ Meltdown 2011|
Yo Yo Blues! Is a recession
busting Up-Tempo, ‘kick ass’ show featuring Geno’s 4 piece combo, Yo Yo
Blues. Geno, with half of the Ram Jam Band take to the streets to play a
blistering party set of pared down Soul, Blues, Jump and R&B to make the
joint jump. Geno has great Blues and party pedigree, as well as soul,
having released three blues albums to date (‘Loose Lips’, ‘Change Your
Thoughts You Change Your Life’ and ‘What’s in The Pot?’) and also having
played at parties for some unmentionably high end individuals)
Washington and The Ram Jam Band History proves Geno to be something of
an enigma too. Without ever having had a number one single, Geno had two
of the biggest selling U.K. albums of the sixties. Amazingly both of
these were live albums.
