Neil Billington Blues Band

20 October 2013

Sunday 20 October 2013 - 5pm @ Chicago Sports Cafe

Neil Billington on harmonica and vocals will be accompanied by Reuben Bradley on the drums, Patrick Bleakley on the bass, Nick Granville on guitar, and Damian Forlong on trombone.

Neil’s specialty is the chromatic harmonica, played in the traditions of the great Belgian player Toots Thielemann, and the Chicago style blues of Little Walter on the diatonic instrument. Very few harmonica players anywhere cover that range.

The repertoire of this line-up would easily range from Parker and Davis tunes and other modern standards, to swing (including ballads) and latin tunes, and blues.
