"One of the most exciting young bands in the UK.”

DJ Paul Jones BBC Radio 2

24Pesos burst on to the blues scene in 2008 with their raw and rootsy live shows and debut album The Boogie Worm. In 2010 they released their second album Busted Broken and Blue to great critical acclaim earning the band four nominations at the British blues awards including best band and best album. Drawing from influences diverse as Sly Stone, Sean Costello, Albert Collins, Cream, The Meters, James Brown, Freddie King, Howlin Wolf, Captain Beefheart, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and the Roots, the band’s upbeat, downhome sound brings an infectious energy to their electrifying live shows that has earned them an outstanding reputation as a live act at festivals and venues throughout Europe and the UK. 
DO THE RIGHT THING is the bands fourth release on Ourgate records/Cadiz music. The album like ..."Busted Broken and Blue" and "When the ship goes down" is very much a crossover Blues album. The band recorded eighteen tracks over two days in London’s Perry Vale studios. All tracks were recorded live to capture the real band sound, spontaneity, excitement and vibe. The tracks were then developed in the band’s own studio. “We really worked on the arrangements for this record. Looking for a gnarly groove and grind, real songs and a sound that is unique, original unmistakably 24Pesos.” Eighteen tracks were pared down to eleven. “Having tracks to spare meant that we were able to produce and album that we are really proud of from start to finish.” Groovin, powerful, raw and rockin’. DO THE RIGHT THING is the band's most complete release to date. 

DO THE RIGHT THING won the blues and soul awards for most innovative blues album of 2016.
