directory of local bands
Expect a sprinkling of classic songs by the likes of Ray Charles, Nina Simone and Willie Dixon, plus great originals by the band's guitarist Rob Koral and vocalist Zo Schwarz.
A six-piece blues band with a distinct and individual sound featuring expressive, sassy vocals, virtuoso guitar, animated and charismatic harmonica (Si Genaro), wailing Hammond-organ (Pete Whittaker), supported by rocking bass Malcolm Creese and drummer Mark Fletcher. A vibrant and exciting combination audiences find compelling.
They have been together three years now and have played impressive seasons of festivals, clubs and concerts going down stormingly well with audiences and reviewers.

They recorded their second C.D. DRIVING IN THE RAIN in January 2009, once again on the award winning Audio-B label (distribution by Propernote), as with their debut album BREAKOUT.

Driving In The Rain is the second CD from rock-fuelled blues six-piece The Baddest Blues Band (ever!), and they certainly present this image well. The album, which features 15 tracks, for me brings back some routes of blues music that I have not heard recently. The classic sound of a rotary organ underneath a harmonica solo section can go a long way, not to mention the solid rhythm section. Songs such as Driving In The Rain are strong evidence of the bands ability to write classic bluesy tones and grooves .. This is a very well rounded album, which is able to combine rock and blues elements with great guitar ability. You can really tell this band understand each other, and perfectly complement the vocal talent of Zo Schwarz who, in the midst of their strong sound puts the perfect cherry on top.
