A two-man band with drums, harmonica, guitar and a voice that can shatter glass – pretty much all you really need to play music sounding like Elmore James, Howlin´ Wolf, North Mississippi Hill Country Blues and Reverend Charlie Jackson.
Within very little time the Juke Joint Pimps have evolved into a unique act. Sounding “black” enough to cater to a traditional blues audience while being so wild, loud and raw that the punk rockers and garage freaks dig them just as much. And they´re really truckloads of fun to watch! Two blues guys wearing white pin stripe suits, red shoes and jewelry, blasting rough juke joint music for everybody who cared to dance or listen.!
The Juke Joint Pimps recorded their debut for Reverend Beatman’s near-legendary record label Voodoo Rhythm Records in 2008 (“Boogie The House Down – Juke Joint Style)” and received rave reviews from all over the world, including Korea, Japan, Australia, Mexico. They have toured in more than a dozen different countries since. In 2009 they were elected to participate in the finals for the International Blues Challenge for Germany – unluckily they only came in second. In 2011 their second album “Boogie the Church Down” was released – also on Voodoo Rhythm, this time featuring some wild gospel trash, besides the trademark downhome garage blues.
