NEXT GIG: Thurs 1st December 2016 - The Slimline Shufflers at The Old Duke, Bristol

Eldon Hse gig

Eric Arthur plays piano with Bucucrasu & The Slimline Shufflers, bringing a fresh take to the New Orleans blues and boogie woogie tradition.

A world first, jungle boogie in 7/8 time:

As well as playing the timeless classics of New Orleans blues, we create new rhythms and styles in this most funky and soulful of genres.  The legendary Professor Longhair was memorably described as the Bach of Rock, with his grooves influencing musical giants such as James Brown. In our own West Country way we continue the exploration of the blues pioneered by Crescent City boogie masters like Dr John and James Booker.
