John Senior Blues Band

John Senior Guitar/Vocals
Joe D Bass/Vocals
Ray Gibson Drums

I gigged with them in the late sixties. Lots of heavy Blues when all the kids wanted was Knock On Wood!

We rehearsed a lot, told the agents we were a Soul Band and then played our version ... KNOCK ON WOOD MEETS THE BLUES. Mostly from The Beano Album, B B King and early Cream.

We enjoyed it anyway.

Ray Gibson

Hello Ray, I am in contact with John and see him socially. I am trying to persuade him to re-form the Band. I played with the Band from about 1966, left to study in Leicester in '67 but returned to play whilst there. The drummer we had then had a ... Read More
