24PESOS is one of the fastest rising bands in the blues scene today. Emerging from the clubs and bars of London, 24PESOS burst on to the blues scene in 2008 with their raw and rootsy live shows and debut album The Boogie Worm. In 2010 they released their second album Busted Broken and Blue to great critical acclaim. Drawing from influences as diverse as Ray Charles, Sean Costello, The Meters, James Brown, Freddie King, Howlin Wolf and The Roots, the band’s upbeat, down-home sound brings an infectious energy to their electrifying live shows that has earned them a great reputation as a live act at festivals and venues throughout Europe and the UK. Special guest support slot tonight comes from Fuschi4.
