A Chicago Blues party with The Untouchables

In association with Shades of Soul Ltd

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Welcome to The Untouchables’ Chicago Speakeasy! When The Untouchables take to the stage, you’ll be transported back to the days of rent parties and rumbas when the great blues masters kept them dancing ‘til the early hours. The band has developed a distinctive repertoire that ranges from the low-down to Latin, from harmonica-driven boogie to sultry late-night jazz- and all of it mixed up with a hint of Caribbean spice. Prepare yourself for an electrifying evening. These seasoned musicians are ready to thrill you with their raw, heartfelt blues.

“The Untouchables play sparse, tasteful Chicago blues. No, not blues rock: tight, swinging, focussed, authentic sounding urban blues, with every element honed to its bare essentials in an unostentatious display of taste and restraint. These players have lived and breathed the style until it's so much a part of them that it oozes out of their pores. If you like Little Walter, Bo Diddley or Willie Dixon, then this is as close as you’ll get to seeing them live. Utterly superb."

The band was formed by Pete Ellison (guitar) and Keith Parker (vocals and harp) to carry the spirit of the music they loved – the Chicago blues of artists such as Little Walter and Muddy Waters. When they found Eddie and Paul they knew they had the perfect rhythm section. 

Before long, the band had built a reputation for playing to young audiences who knew how to dance. They were soon in demand at London clubs where their music found a home beside reggae sound systems and rhythm and blues 78s. 

The Untouchables have toured extensively, thrilling audiences in clubs and festivals (including Bestival) at home and across Europe.
