Live: Jo Carley & the Old Dry Skulls

12.12.2023, 21:00 - 23:00

“… This band is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill blues outfit. It’s off-the-wall blues, honkytonk, and boogie with a pinch of country all mixed up like gumbo… I suggest you sit down with a drink and let Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls take you somewhere you would never dream of going…” Stephen Harrison / Blues Matters Magazine
“Jo Carley & The Old Dry Skulls were a joy to behold. Rooted firmly in a bygone era when Voodoo and Black Magic were rife, the audience were all spellbound by the performance and its originality” Adrian Blacklee – Blues Matters Magazine (UK)
Jo Carley and The Old Dry Skulls are known for their unique live show, transporting the audience to a bygone era when witches and black magic were rife. Their songs tell stories of deals with the devil, demons in love, witchdoctors, zombies, ghosts, ghouls, journeys to the deepest jungles and other exotic adventures which are told using sweet melodies and syncopated sounds. The music takes influence from early vaudeville blues acts such as Victoria Spivey, via Cab Calloway, Wilmouth Houdini and Wanda Jackson, but adding a creepy and theatrical twist that echoes Dr John and Screamin Jay Hawkins, all with an upbeat dose of old timey rock n roll, skiffle, calypso and a 1930’s vibe.
