Geno Washington is an undisputed Master of Soul, literally a 60’s soul legend enjoying cult status in Soul, blues and RnB scenes, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer.
A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day).
In 1980 ‘Oh Geno!’ Was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Rowland based the song on his memories of Geno’s gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!
He has released 13 albums since 1966 and has performed alongside James Brown, The Rolling Stones, Bo Diddley and The Everly Brothers to name but a few.
Geno Washington & The Yo Yos features members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RnB and house rockin’ blues.
Geno is electrifying today as ever and we are so excited to have him on The Rec Room stage!
