Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man 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), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.

In 1980 ‘Oh Geno!’ was a massive UK number #1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno’s gigs, when club land used to echo to the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!

Geno Washington & The Yo Yo’s feature members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RNB and house rockin’ blues.

Always ready to rock the house, the king of the swingers Geno Washington is the incarnation of all things 60s. Hipsters and flipsters, movers and shakers alike, all will have a great time when the good time guru gets his army of fans on the good foot! The old Geno magic still drags them in and sends them home high.

Support comes from Seany Clarke, blending soul, indie and funk with a 21st century twist.
