Creating a heady mix of New Orleans and North Mississippi rhythms, blended with their own Thames delta style, and some West African influences thrown in for good measure; the South London blues trio, Jimmy Regal and the Royals have delivered another fine example of blues fusion — this time with even more friends!

Jimmy Regal and the Royals are without doubt a unique band. “No other band is a three-piece with harmonica, guitar and drums, for a start,” mentions Joff. As a trio they have discovered interesting ways in which to experiment within the line-up, bolstering their sound as well as maximising the use of their instruments. With the guitar and harmonica taking on multiple roles, using effects pedals and innovative techniques, means they come out with exciting and creative music — setting them apart from the more traditional guitar bands on the circuit.
