Newly named in the 2015 British Blues Awards in the top three of the Overseas Artist category, New Jersey's Billy Walton Band (photo: Amber Charach) tour of the UK started on Wednesday and ends on Tuesday 2nd February at The Beaverwood Club in Chislehurst, Kent. Their recent album 'Wish For What You Want' on Vizztone Records won the band new critical acclaim and memorable reviews - their sound a combination of hard, funky Blues reminiscent of Hendrix, Clapton and Vaughan. As guitarist with the legendary group Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Billy Walton recorded with Little Steven and jammed with Jon Bon Jovi. Billy has sat in with numerous rock luminaries including Bruce Springsteen, Gary U.S. Bonds, and Stevie Ray Vaughan's band, Double Trouble. The full, six-piece touring band comprises Billy, bassist William Paris, Tom Petracarro on sax, Matt Fischer on trombone, drummer Johnny D'Angelo, and Sam Sherman on keyboards. A new live album is imminent and a new studio album is in the works.
