Paul Lamb and The King Snakes are
today acknowledged globally as being amongst the very finest purveyors of Rhythm & Blues. Mixing traditional blues, R&B and roots-rock with a unique British perspective the band has come up with an original and invigorating sound that plays particularly well on stage, and are often heralded as one of the few remaining true blues acts that can be witnessed.
Originally from Blyth, a mining village in Northumberland, as a teenager Paul heard a track by John Mayall & the Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton. This moved him so much that he was inspired to pick up the harmonica and play the blues, forming firstly the Blues Burglars and later on the King Snakes.After making a good name for himself in the North East, Lamb was invited down to London to play with Junior Wells and Buddy Guy. It was an offer he could not refuse and he relocated to London and started his own band - The King Snakes.
Four decades and 14 albums later he’s played with blues and rock greats such as Sonny Terry, Albert Collins, Mark Knopfler, The Who, Rod Stewart and Brownie McGhee, all of which has contributed to Lamb forming and perfecting his sound as well as earning himself a place in the British Blues Awards Hall Of Fame.The King Snakes line-up consists of Chad Strentz (vocals/rhytm guitar), Rob Demick (bass/backing vocals), Ryan Lamb (lead guitar/backing vocals) and Dino Coccia (drums/backing vocals), all top class players well regarded in the business and each one a true musician in their own right.
The Chilli Dawgs
