Rockin' & rollin' blues from Holland's top band THE JUKE JOINTS - at The Bullfrog , South Parade Pier, Southsea, Thurs 4th Nov!!



The Juke Joints, Holland’s top blues band, are Peter Kempe - (lead vocals, drums, mandolin, acoustic guitar), Michel 'Boogie Mike' Staat (guitar), Sonny Boy van den Broek (harmonica, vocals and accordion) and Derk Korpershoek (bass). 

The band performed a storming gig at The Bullfrog Blues Club back in 2002, and we’ve been trying to get them back ever since, and I’m delighted to announce that they’re back at The Bullfrog Blues Club (at last!) on Thursday November 4th on South Parade Pier, Southsea -their ONLY south coast gig! Bring your dancing shoes! This is high energy rockin’ & rollin’ blues!

The Juke Joints have been performing storming gigs throughout Europe and the USA for over 26 years. They continue to perform on stages in Holland, France, Germany, Belgium, Latvia, Curaçao, Scandinavia and the USA. The band have been touring extensively, including frequent visits to England and Ireland. 
They were the first European band to play the prestigious Delta Blues Festival in Greenville, Mississippi sharing the bill with Little Feat, Dr. John and B.B. King 
And they have also shared stages with the best that blues has to offer, including Kim Wilson, Buddy Guy, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, The Paladins, Walter Trout, Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers, The Nighthawks, Bernard Allison, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, George Thorogood, Roomful of Blues, Joe Bonamassa and Johnny Winter.

In June the Juke Joints recorded a new CD in Chicago, in the Rax Trax studio, where Lonnie Brooks, Eddy Clearwater, Koko Taylor and Little Ed & the Blues Imperials recorded, amongst many other giants of the blues world. Special guest on the bonus track 'Going to Chicago' is the legendary Chicago blues guitarist Eddy 'The Chief' Clearwater. The CD is released in November - in time for the Southsea gig!

Last year the Juke Joints released a live DVD, featuring special guests including T-Model Ford and Sherman Robertson.

In 2007 their 10th album, 'Let it Roll' was released on Rounder. The album is an amalgam of blues styles, including Chicago blues, blues rock, rock 'n' roll and rockabilly, all linked by the band's unmatched energy.

In 2003, The Juke Joints celebrated their 20th anniversary with the release of the double album '20 years' , which included a live CD with special recordings featuring harmonica legend Mark Wenner (The Nighthawks) and the Mississippi harmonica ace Willie Foster. 
The high energy 'Live in Ireland' CD, contains three tracks on accordion, several acoustic songs, the Rory Gallagher mandolin classic 'Going To My Hometown' as well as a few steaming Juke Joints originals. 

THE JUKE JOINTS are at The Bullfrog Blues Club, South Parade Pier, Southsea, Thursday 4th November - doors open at 8 p.m.. Tickets are just £8.
