Saturday Blues Club with Kit Curtis & The B3's

Saturday Blues Club with Kit Curtis & The B3's

Calling all you hipsters, flipsters and finger poppin' daddies! Grab a ride as we whisk you cool cats back to London town circa 1967. At a time when visiting Soul and R&B acts from the States were a rarity, it fell to homegrown British talent to fill the gap. Ever since the early 60s, American R&B and Soul had been in the ascent, fuelled by the burgeoning Mod scene which was rooted in the late 50s and which eventually swept out from the capital around 1964. Groups such as Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band, Zoot Money's Big Roll Band, The Action, The Birds and Who forerunners, The HIgh Numbers, entertained the capital's Mod audiences with foot stompin' high energy renditions of Stax, Motown and Chess record label classics. True blue eyed Soul at its best! Kit Curtis & the B3s truly capture the excitement and passion of the era, with their authentic Hammond led sound. This is as close as you can get to the mid 60s London club scene experienced by the original Mod generation. Now if you can't get no 'Satisfaction', we beg you (and we 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg!') ignore every 'Stop Sign', board that 'Memphis Train' and dance to the rhythm of 'That Driving Beat' like you're 'Some Kind of Wonderful'! Kit Curtis & the B3s have arrived with a whole lotta' hip shakin', soul breakin', earth quakin' rhythms and drivin' Hammond riffs, topped off with a big fat slab of Mr Curtis's soulful refrains. That's what we call maximum R&B! So get ready for a whole lotta hand clappin', foot stompin', funky-butt . . . . LIVE! And remember . . . . in Kit's world it's always 1967!
