KING EARL BOOGIE BAND
WHO ARE KEBB
to the start
THE KING EARL BOOGIE BAND ?
PIANO, AND BACKING VOCALS.
MUNGO JERRY, Colin left to work
with Dave Kelly, Pic Withers and John Dummer. He also played briefly with
Graham Bond before going to the States to work with
who toured extensively in the USA. Listen to the piano on their recording
of "Maybelline" and wonder why Colin's fingers didn't catch
fire ! On returning to the
UK he reformed the KING EARL BOOGIE BAND
and has been touring ever since.
He recently (2008) guested with
while visiting the USA and proved live on stage that he could still
hack Maybelline !
John is one of the best known drummers in the
Country, having been the
powerhouse of the legendary rock band
for twenty years. He
has played on 15 of their albums, including 11 consecutive titles
achieving Gold or Platinum status. After leaving
STATUS QUO, John formed
DIESEL BAND with Micky
Moody and Jackie Lynton. He now brings his drive and energy to the
KING EARL BOOGIE BAND.
John also performs with his own band,
JOHN COGHLAN'S QUO.

TIMES been voted Acoustic Blues
Artiste of the Year.
First in 1995
and then again in 2001 and 2002. Eric Clapton only managed to
earn it once, in
Gordon is an eloquent guitarist with a real
soul feel for his Stratocaster. He joined the band in 2010 and bringis his
distinctive soulful touch to the lead guitar spot.
Few people would argue that George Leslie Calvert
ranks as one of the best bass players in the Country, he was
a founder member of
MACHINE GUN COMPANY and has played in many bands
ALEXIS KORNER, JONAH LOUIS, EDWIN
STARR'S BAND and he spent an
impressive 18 years with Ray Dorset's
JERRY BAND before joining the
KEBB in 2000.
He also moonlights with JASON MANNERS
as well as
IN THE POST
KEITH ALLEN BAND.
ADAM PERRY DEPUTY DRUMMER
Because John Coghlan is frequently committed elsewhere with his band
"JOHN COGHLAN'S QUO" ; coupled
with the fact that 2012 will be the fiftieth anniversary of
STATUS QUO - and some reunion
tours are possible; the KEBB have decided to appoint a "deputy
drummer" to cover for events which John cannot attend. They
are very lucky to have found Adam Perry of
THE KEITH ALLEN BAND who is a
great stand in for John.
