Diamond Jim & The Tuff Tones
One of the most talked about new acts to hit the blues scene, Diamond Jim & the Tuff Tones' fuel-injected, hard-drivin’ mix of R’n’B, blues and swingin’ jump blues stops folks in their tracks.
The love child of guitar-playin’ boogie man Diamond Jim Dyson (ex Blues Train favourite Chubby Rae and the Elevators) and Wailin’ Chris Fogaty, harp player extraordinaire (ex Diddley Daddies etc back to the mid 60s). Their mission: to get down and boogie hard, whatever the weather, and dress sharp doin’ it!
Steve 'Stooka' Bennett (ex Grisly Brothers) rocks up a storm on lead vocal, with thunder and lightning provided by the too-cool-for-school rhythm section of Luke 'Young Man' Hines on upright and electric bass and Henry Andre Janss keepin’ it tight on drums.
