Basing their sound on the swinging soul of the great artists who recorded for Chess Records in the 50s The Untouchables return to RJR with what promises to be an unforgettable night of authentic swing and Blues. With a string bass, a vintage drum kit, a cranked guitar through a hot valve amp and a wailing harp, this band turns any venue into a rocking juke joint. The group comprised of vocalist Chuck Askerneese, guitarist and vocalist Clyde Grimes, bassist Derek Breakfield, keyboard player Brewster, and an alternating crew of percussionists and horn players.
“The Untouchables play sparse, tasteful Chicago blues. No, not blues rock: tight, swinging, focused, authentic sounding urban blues, with every element honed to its bare essentials in an unostentatious display of taste and restraint. These players have lived and breathed the style until it’s so much a part of them that it oozes out of their pores. If you like Little Walter, Bo Diddley or Willie Dixon, then this is as close as you’ll get to seeing them live. Utterly superb.- Live Unsigned
Expect an intimate show, featuring the more sophisticated side of their repertoire – drawing you into the place where blues, jazz and Latin rhythms meet.
