Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man, enjoying cult status in soul, blues and Rnb, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live peformer.
A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.
In 1980, 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!
Geno Washington & The Yo Yos features members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RnB and house rockin' blues.
