After the success of their recent tour, The Mick Pini Band will be touring the UK again in 2003
with Roger Inniss on bass and Markus Klopfer on drums.
As well as touring Europe with B.B. King and supporting such blues greats as Buddy Guy, Freddie King and Jimmy Rogers: Mick Pini has earned himself a strong following, particularly in Europe.
Eric Clapton described him in 1996 as
‘The legitimate successor to Peter Green’.
However, Mick Pini is unquestionably a unique living legend in his own right ... the genuine article. His authentic voice and outstanding guitar work personifies the blues in an inimitable way.
Mick has toured the world for 30 years and has never had a day job. He lives, breathes, plays and sings the blues with genuine passion even his 1954 Fender Stratocaster smokes!
1998 saw the band touring more extensively than ever. The year began with an enormously successful five week European tour during which the band won the prestigious ‘Blues Band of the Month’ award at ‘Talkin Blues’ in Cologne. In January 1999 the band recorded their definitive album ‘Blues Gonna Be My Way’.
It sees the most welcome return of Mike Vernon as producer.
Mike produced Mick’s ‘Wildman’ album in 1989.
This featured A.B. Burns, Chris Youlden and Paul Jones,
and sold over 20,000 copies.
More recently, on top of the band's increasing European schedule, Mick has backed Dr Ross the old Bluesman, Mojo Buford, and Louisianna Red. Mick has also recently recorded an album with Jimmy Carl Black and Roy Estrada (ex Little Feat and Mothers of Invention and Captain Beefheart)
