Blues music from Germany: Juke Joint Pimps
In some way we all want to go back to the days the juke joints were full of people. blues, rock n roll and soul was the music everybody listened to. The pubs were dark, full of smoke and moonshine whiskey. We dream about the days the blues started in Mississippi a while before Chicago became it’s renewed capital and the blues revival was just a strange term.
Juke Joint Pimps
Today most of the artist everybody admired ain´t here no more. We got a new generation of musician in the United States but also a lot in Europe. A band I recently crossed during a night of blues were the Juke Joint Pimps, a two man band from the Koln area in Germany.
Chicago, Delta, Swamp, Hillbilly Blues
T-Man and Mighty Mike rock since 2003 the through Europe with a mix of Chicago, Delta Swamp and Hillbilly Blues. Songs of the Juke Joint Pimps are, as it should be energetic with groovy guitar, swinging harmonica and steady beats. The Juke Joint Pimps are easy to listen to.
Over the years these guys performed in over a dozen countries. Their latest album “Boogie the Church Down” was released in 2011.
