The Blues Hobos are: Jake Kirkpatrick & JJ Soul

Thinking man’s Blues – Donald Fagen meets Tom Waits via Neil Diamond & Captain Beefheart .... Hmmmm!

Below are Tracks, Video & Artwork...inc NEW LIVE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS - FEB 2010


JK & JJ usually go out as an accomplished duo covering Jazz standards, great American songbook classics, original material and the blues - all with unique arrangements and delivery. On occassion they call in players to augment the sound (depending on the event) and this ranges from drummer and percussionist to additional guitar and keyboards.

There is no substitute in life for an older head and the Hobos have two! - going with the flow and reading an audience can be taken as read (so to speak).

From LA via Iceland to Oxford around the corner and up your street these guys have it in the bag.

Pubs, Clubs, Functions, Weddings, Barmitzvas & Fun(erals) ......er, anywhere really. Groove & have fun!!!
