24PESOS is one of the fastest rising bands in the blues scene today. Emerging from the clubs and bars of London, 24PESOS burst on to the blues scene in 2008 with their raw and rootsy live shows and debut album The Boogie Worm. In 2010 they released their second album Busted Broken and Blue to great critical acclaim. Drawing from influences diverse as Ray Charles, Sean Costello, The Meters, James Brown, Freddie King, Howlin Wolf, and the Roots the band’s upbeat, down-home sound brings an infectious energy to their electrifying live shows that has earned them a great reputation as a live act at festivals and venues throughout Europe and the UK.
The band features the blistering guitar, vocal and harmonica of Julian Burdock. As a sideman Julian has played with many great artists including Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley, Beverly Knight, Jocelyn Brown. Silas Maitland holds down the low end on his 62 P-Bass – playing credits include Geno Washington, Son of Dave, Marcus Malone, Imelda May and The Blues Brothers. On greasy Hammond B3 is Moz Gamble … Paul McCartney, Paloma Faith, The Flash Monkey, and Ian Segal. Behind the drums is the raw and funky feel of Mike Connolly (the Boogie Worm)… Marcus Bonfanti.
