Biography

Elliott and the Untouchables, from Columbia, SC, are Red Hot. They play the real blues... authentic, vintage blues. From jumpin' west coast swing numbers to burnin' slow blues and nasty slide guitar workouts on an electric diddley bow, the Untouchables' repertoire is as diverse and powerful as the blues itself.

The band has taken their high-energy show to clubs and festivals across the US including the House of Blues, Indiana's Bean Blossom Blues Festival, The Birmingham Jam, The Cape Fear Blues Festival, The Charleston Blues Bash, Asheville NC's Bele Chere Festival, the 3 Rivers Music Festival in Columbia, SC, and on Memphis' Beale Street at the Crossroads Music Festival.

The Untouchables traveled to Ireland, opening for music legend Van Morrison at the Monaghan Rhythm & Blues Festival and performed at the Blackstairs Blues Festival in Enniscorthy. Other international appearances include the Tremblant International Blues Festival in Quebec, Canada.

The band has released five CD's on BluePoint Records. Their last release,
"Voodoo Stew" has been nominated as Best Self-Produced CD in the International Blues Challenge in 2005.
