Rock Artist Management presents
Always ready to rock the house, the King of the Swingers, Geno Washington, is the incarnation of all things '60s!
Hipsters and flipsters, movers and shakers alike, are all rendered incapable of having a bad time, when the "Good Time Guru" gets his army of fans on the good foot. The old Geno magic still drags them in and sends them home high and this barnstorming live show promises to offer nothing less; never letting up in intensity or excitement and delivering the goods every time!
Geno Washington is a genuine full-on cult hero... a legend on the 60's Soul scene. He enjoys such status on the Soul, R&B and Northern Soul scenes, due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer. He is electrifying on stage and his love of performance (and of life!) makes him an inspiration, a joy to witness, and one of the greatest frontmen from the latter half of the 20th century. Geno had two of the biggest selling U.K. albums of the sixties and amazingly both of these were live albums. Hand Clappin, Foot Stompin, Funky-Butt... Live! was in the U.K. album charts for 48 out of 52 weeks in 1966. Incredibly, only The Sound of Music and Bridge Over Troubled Water sold more copies in the UK that year... a fact that is a clear testament to Geno's awesome ability as a live performer who connects with his audience.
The support act for the night is Luton Youth Jazz Orchestra.
