Biography

psychedelic rhythm & blues pop -

No run-of-the-mill grind, but a heady coctail, where best psychedelic elements from 1960’s San Francisco meet Mississippi blues in a garage with serious intentions. The phat bass lines of Honey B. and the funky and rich drumming of Jaska Lukkarinen build a house, where Esa Kuloniemi’s fiery and earthy slide takes no prisoners. The cherry on the cake comes courtesy of Honey B’s singing. Think updated Memphis Minnie and you’re close. Blues is not for teenagers, it comes out of life experience. After large-scale touring, often all over Europe and North America, T-Bones know the ropes. In the course of thirteen albums their style has matured from rootsy blues through rocking R&B and psychedelic experimental rock to today’s kaleidoscopic & jazzy psych-soul-pop that fills their current, excellent Walking Witness album.

Aija “Honey B.” Puurtinen, lead vocal & bass
Esa Kuloniemi, guitar & vocal
Jaska Lukkarinen, drums & vocal

In selected situations, the band expands to quartet line-up, with Mamba Assefa on percussion & vocal.
