Some kind comments at our live performances.

Awesome innovative gig at the Labour club guys...I am now a big fan. - July 2017.
A different person at the same gig "A lovely pair of guys and so much fun!".
What I really liked was the variety.

 

Saw you in the 3 Wise Monkeys Saturday night have to say I was well impressed, early blues is right up my street.  I just wish more people would take the time in delving into the past and giving it a listen. Keep it up, you have a great sound 

 

 

From our appearance at Twinfest, Northampton: …before the incredible King Biscuit Boys play. Having only managed to bag a slot at Twinfest due to a band member recently moving into the area, the two-piece play through an array of musical styles, with an even bigger array of musical instruments, and keep the audience completely engrossed throughout.

The mix of good time acoustic blues on guitar and harmonica, supplemented with a sprinkling of other instruments and a good balance of originals and covers, with a generous drizzle of humour thrown in, left me going home have had a thoroughly entertaining evening - John Cee Stannard.

Folk on the Water - 2015. Crikey you guys were fabulous tonight. What a great act to close our opening night with. You were a great act. Thank you!

Blues at the Fold
A swift changeover brought The King Biscuit Boys to the stage, an odd pairing of the worldly looking ‘Lonesome Jon’ on guitar and young Rasta Craig on a pretty mean harp, along with washboard and melodica.
They gave us some delightful Country and Delta blues with tongue in cheek humour blending nicely into a very entertaining set. Jon could not help telling us that ‘I’m tired of working’ and we listened to songs as diverse as Mary had a little Lamb’ to an old blues ‘Cocaine’. Craig took up the washboard and possible half his kitchen to deliver a lovely ‘Washboard Rag’.  He certainly knows how to use the harp. All in all with Jon’s easy gruff vocals they had lifted the tempo.  I particularly liked ‘What is it tastes like gravy?’ Those old blues men certainly knew how to write lyrics.
