What I'm Listening To: Geno Washington

Last Fall my husband and I traveled to Canterbury to attend the Canterbury Festival's celebration of multiple forms of art. One of the events we attended was a performance from The King of Swingers, Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band. Although Geno and his band are most famously known for their performances in the 1960s, let me tell you, he's still got it. In Canterbury his band took the stage at 9:30pm and by the end of the night he had everyone up on their feet dancing and clapping and the audience wouldn't let him stop playing until after midnight. It was awesome!

Fun fact: Geno Washington first came to England in the 1960s when he was stationed there with the U.S. Air Force. In his spare time, he began gigging in London, and eventually Geno fell in love while in England and never left. The rest is history.
