LIL’ ED & THE BLUES IMPERIALS * NEW ALBUM
Thanks to Alligator Records !
“Alligator recording artists Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials, touring in support of their latest Alligator CD, JUMP START, will be touring Europe between Friday, March 20 through Saturday, April 4, 2015. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned Chicago shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed Williams and his rip-roaring Blues Imperials — bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton — deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues. Currently celebrating 27 history-making years together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge. In 2013, the band was awarded the Living Blues Critics’ and Readers’ Awards for Best Live Performer. The band won this same distinction in the 2012 and 2011 Living Blues Critics’ Poll. The group won the coveted 2009 Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year, the same honor they received in 2007”. (Source: Alligator http://www.alligator.com/)

DISCOVER: THE BILL WALTON BAND
“Over the years Walton has sat in with numerous of rock luminaries including Springsteen, Gary US Bonds and Stevie Ray’s backing band, Double Trouble. The foundation for the future was set when Billy teamed up with bassist William Paris. The talent and organization of this core has been the driving force that has seen the band launch 15 European tours since 2008. The line up solidified with the addition of Johnny D’Angelo on drums. The band decided to show their Jersey roots by expanding to a 5 piece with the addition of Sean Marks on sax and Ian Gray on trombone”.
