About

The Cottonhouse Shakers were a difficult band to pigeon hole. Under the blues tag they were unlike all other blues bands. Firstly the band have a jazz funk edge which is partly down to the bands bassist and keyboard player who were founding members of Blackburn jazz/funksters "False Negative". Combine this with Gone Beggin' frontman Gary Ward and Jazz/rock drummer Tim Jackson and you have an interesting mix. Completing the line up was the groups backing vocal duo "Kiki Deville and Julie Pilkington" who add a little soul to the table.

The group could boast the most eclectic set list on this website. a set list which ranged from Miles Davis to Hawkwind and from Hank Williams to Sesame Street - all done in their own inimitable style.

Don't be put off by the blues or jazz tag, the covers that the Cottonhouse Shakers played were popular, lively and not taken too seriously.
