Jim Ferrie - Acoustic Guitar/Vocal
Neil Packman - Harmonica/Guitar/Percussion/Vocal
Neil and Jim (Jimmy duo) get a crowd going with fast-paced bluesy-swingy originals and covers with Neil periodically meandering into the audience with his harmonica at full tilt.
Neil, based in Reading, Berkshire, never gets out of breath, probably due to his former years as a long distance runner and semi-pro footballer. It's not unknown for the duo to play for 3 hours! As an experienced blues harmonica player, Neil's played in the Royal Albert Hall, been on TV and has recorded with a number of well known acts including Tyla Pallas leader 80's/90's rock band Dogs D'Amour, with whom he was on tour with during 2017. He also once guested with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes in New Jersey of which he is, quite rightly, very proud.
Neil is also known for playing with a number of artists in and around Reading, including fronting his own band Blues Cruise (www.facebook.com/BluesCruiseband) and guests with other national acts including Boss Caine and one of England's top ladies of Americana, Danii Nichols.
Jimmy The Dog duo is available for festivals, private functions and pub appearance engagements in the London and Thames Valley areas and beyond.
