Sixties and seventies soul-star Geno Washington performs his mix of soul, R&B, blues and northern soul at Worthing’s Assembly Hall on July 19.
Geno Washington, who was a contemporary of Alexis Corner, Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix, became known as one of the great front-men of the 20th century from his years fronting The Ram Jam Band with hit albums such as Hand Clappin, Foot Stompin, Funky-Butt ... Live! which remained in the album charts for 38 weeks during 1966.
As a solo artist, Geno performs tracks from throughout his career, moving from Motown with tracks such as Uptight [Everything’s Alright] to Memphis soul with Hold On! I’m Comin through to the New Orleans style of Ride Your Pony.
In recent years Geno has been regularly touring and released the single I’m Doing 99 Years in aid of victims of crime and child abuse during 2009 when he also headlined the Kelvedon Free Music Festival.
Geno went on to collaborate with comedian and musician Matt Berry on Get Here in Time and Theme from Snuff Box in 2012.
Alongside the music, Geno combines anecdotes about his personal life with reminiscences about his days with icons including Van Morrison during the show.
