DIZ AND THE DOORMEN

Legendariske Diz Watson sammen med et forrygende band.
Vores egen Søren Frost på trommer Svenske Mikael Fahleryd på Bas og 2 gange Nick på saxofon - de plejer at spille med Bill Wyman, men idag spiller de med Diz Watson på Mojo.
Det er sprællevende piano blues så man tror det løgn med blæs og hele pibetøjet. Sikke en fest.

Ace Records Artist Diz ‘Honeybear’ Watson, piano player, singer and entertainer, is a quintessential exponent of New Orleans style piano, and exuberant mix of Barrelhouse, Rhythm and Blues, Rock n Roll, and Boogie Woogie. He recorded the classic ‘Bluecoat Man’ for Ace Records in 1981, featuring the legendary Lee Allen on saxophone, and in 1995 cut ‘Tonky Honk’ with Big Jay McNeely. Diz has worked and opened for the likes of Chas and Dave, Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, Alexis Korner, Axel Swingenburger, Dr. John and the Rolling Stones.

Charlie Hart (Producer of Bluecoat Man) comments : “Diz is a phenomenon, definitely the coolest of Yorkshiremen and a connoisseur of the exotic, his influences are Champion Jack Dupree, all the way to Abdullah Ibrahim. Diz gets the essentially multi-cultural nature of music better than anyone, having absorbed the blues from the inside.

Diz is joined by saxophonists Nick Payn and Nick Pentelow. They regularly work together on both live gigs and recording projects. A recent contribution was on “Diz and the Doormen’s” soon to be released album “Diz-Connected.” Individually they are to be found in Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, and Andy Fairweather Low but over the years they have worked together, recording and playing live with Gary Moore, BB King, Albert King and Albert Collins.

As Gaz Mayall says “Be there or be somewhere else, especially if you need proof that the spirit of Professor Longhair lives on.”
