Chicago Blues Party with the Untouchables | Crypt Lates
You’re invited to a Chicago blues party with The Untouchables.
This band of London’s finest are champions of swinging blues, basing their sound on the raw soul of the great artists who recorded for Chess Records in the 50s.
When The Untouchables take to the stage you’ll be transported back to the days of rent parties and rumbas when the great blues masters kept them dancing ‘til the early hours.
Expect an intimate show, featuring the more sophisticated side of their repertoire – drawing you into the place where blues, jazz and Latin rhythms meet.
The Untouchables have played Bestival, Camp Bestival and many other festivals at home and abroad where their brand of blues has won over new audiences every time.
“The Untouchables play sparse, tasteful Chicago blues. No, not blues rock: tight, swinging, focussed, authentic sounding urban blues, with every element honed to its bare essentials in an unostentatious display of taste and restraint. 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
