I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

24 Pesos

24 PESOS is a band from London, UK that is formed by four musicians with a passion for Blues, Soul, Funk and the rhythms of New Orleans. Not content to simply rehash and imitate, 24 PESOS twist the traditional Blues form, blending the raw energy and down home grooves of the Meters with the sophisticated feel and harmony of John Scofield, John Mayer and Ray Charles while staying true and respectful to their Blues roots. Once upon a time guitarist, singer, songwriter Julian Burdock had a dream. Wouldnt it be great to be in a band called 24Pesos. In 2006 Silas Maitland and Julian Burdock wrote and produced a record for legendary soul singer Geno Washington. The idea for that record was to capture Genos live energy and improvisational approach. The album was a return to form for Geno who regards this record as his most exciting and original to date. It was during the recording of that record that Burdock and Maitland decided to put together a group to play live and record their own material. Commitments as sidemen (session musicians) meant that nothing really happened for a couple of years until the two found themselves on stage as part of the band with a very famous ex boy band member who shall remain nameless. The money was good but the music was not. It was at this point the pair decided to re kindle the idea of their own band. In 2008 they recruited Moz Gamble (Hammond) and Mike Connolly (Drums) 24 Pesos was born. The original idea for the band was that the material should be fun to play, interesting, musical and challenging.
