About the band

 

Dutch blues-rockers and winners of the 2012 and 2016 Dutch Blues Foundation Award for "Best Dutch Blues Band", The Juke Joints have been setting fire to international stages for not less than 35 ! years.
The band celebrates their 35th anniversary in 2018 with a new live CD/DVD package that will give 13 tracks of a steamy live show !

The 2015 "Heart on Fire" CD (Continental Records) contains 10 infectious Juke Joints originals, and the Dr. Ross classic "Cat's Squirrel" and the song "Funny Little Valentine" , written by Australian rockabilly singer/guitarist Louis King, received the passionate, greasy Juke Joints treatment and seamlessly fit in the coherence of that album.
On this 9th studio album, follow-up for the "Going to Chicago" CD which the band recorded in Chicago with producer Ronnie Baker Brooks together with guests Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater and Ana Popovic), the Juke Joints have like never before succeeded in translating the steamingly hot energy of their live shows into a brilliant studio sound.

The in April 2017 released CD "Crossroads un&plugged" was live recorded for the Dutch BRTO Radio and contains Juke Joints originals and classics from BB King, Leadbelly, Big Bill Broonzy, Son House.

The Juke Joints performed at festivals and club shows in Ireland, Engeland, Latvia, France, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switserland, Austria, Spain and the USA and shared stages with the best that blues has to offer: Kim Wilson, Buddy Guy, Walter Trout, Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers, The Paladins, The Nighthawks, Bonnie Raitt, Sonny Landreth, BB King, Roomful of Blues, George Thorogood, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, Johnny Winter, Alvin Lee, Bernard Allisson, Joe Bonamassa......
