Geno Washington The King of Soul returns after his amazing sell out concert at Acapela in 2018.

Geno originates from Evansville in Indiana, USA and first came to England in the 1960s as part of the US Air Force. His love of Blues and Soul music soon found him jamming with local bands in and around Ipswich and eventually led him to London where he caused a sensation singing with top R&B acts Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames and Zoot Moneys Big Roll Band at the legendary Flamingo Club in Soho. The rest, as they say, is history.

Geno teamed up with some of Londons hottest musicians and Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band very quickly became established as the most exciting live band in Britain, regularly topping the bill over World famous artistes, as nobody in their right mind wanted to go on stage after a Geno show!

His live shows were immortalised in two of the biggest selling albums of the 60s Hand Clappin Foot Stompin Funky Butt Live and Hipsters Flipsters and Finger Poppin Daddies. His status as the undisputed King of Soul was cemented forever by Kevin Rowland and Dexys Midnight Runners in the 1980s with the World-wide No.1 smash hit single Geno, which paid homage to the great man himself and is still played regularly today on national radio and at Genos live gigs both before and after shows.

Throughout the years Geno and his band have continued to tour extensively all over the World and have released several highly acclaimed albums and singles. His latest live double album simply entitled Its Geno Time, recorded at the legendary Half Moon in Putney, is widely regarded as his best work to date: you only have to listen to the audience reaction to know that Geno has lost none of his magic as he and the band deliver a blistering set of Soul classics to a wild crowd who wouldnt let them off stage!

With Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band you can be sure of one thing and that is a barnstorming live show that never lets up in intensity or excitement and delivers the goods every time!
