Doing The Do b/w Baron Samedi - The Excellos

Craig Shaw Music

Craig Shaw - vocals, guitar, harmonica
Garry Tyrrell Lynch - drums & double bass
Jake Allen - guitar

The Excellos - Stompin' Rockabilly and Blues Bop played hard and dirty!
The Excellos deliver a solid brand of Rockin' Blues that'd be rough, tough and hard to bluff for any other band raised this side of the pond.
Gaining their name from the famous 1950s American Blues record label, they play with the authority and gusto of a blues band that grew straight out of the Mississippi mud.
Hailing from London, these guys have wowed the crowds at many Blues and Rock 'n' Roll joints the world over.
Active for a good many years the line-up revolves around main man Craig Shaw (vocals, guitar, harmonica).
Their debut album was released in 2009, and along with several vinyl 45s it cemented their reputation as one of the hardest rockin' low down dirty Rockin' Blues combos on this planet.
Again The Excellos launch into some truly rockin' R&B that really goes straight for the jugular! - Raucous Records
