Eel Pie Club, Twickenham.
Split Whiskers have their roots firmly planted in Chicago blues, crossing boundaries into rock, Americana and more than a hint of the Delta. The band’s fame is spreading and they are becoming one of the busiest bands at blues venues and festivals around the UK. They have been heavily influenced by their original drummer of 9 years who played with Howling Wolf, Little Walter Jacobs, T-Bone Walker, Jimmy Reed and Sonny Boy Williamson.
Their superb musicianship, along with their infectious humour on stage, promises a great evening’s entertainment. Fronted by Gilby Fat Slim Fletcher on vocals & blues harp and Johnny 'Magic Boy' Wright on vocals & acoustic, resonator & electric guitars. They are joined by: Matt Big Willie Willshaw on keys, Alex the Danger Angel Machell on bass and Tony Hi Hat Hill on drums.
"...Split Whiskers embrace excellence when playing live, the show is a complete experience,you will leave after feeling refreshed and invigorated by their blues..." BBC Radio. "...must go and see them..." Blues Matters Magazine.
