We are pleased to feature at Roomfulla Blues this Thursday 18 December, a new band from our blues club regular, Neil Billington and the Jellyroll Kings!

Deane Hunter on guitar

Bob Smith on keys

Paul Mouncey on bass

An opening set will be provided by “The Raven Mavens“.  With Cindy on funky piano and Marian on soulful clarinet, these two fun-loving performers bring a sassy, sizzling, happy-go-lucky slant to living.

A regular favourite at Roomfulla Blues, Neil Billington has shown he is one of the leading exponents of the harmonica to come out of New Zealand, and combines a rare capacity for the traditional blues harmonica and the less typical chromatic harmonica. He is equally at home whether playing in the ‘Chicago-style’ of Little Walter, or the more sophisticated jazz sensibilities of the Belgian jazz great, Jean ‘Toots’ Thielemans. Neil has appeared with everyone from NZ jazz maestro Rodger Fox’s big band, through to jazz combos and electric blues bands, and folk and roots groups.
