Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man, enjoying cult status in soul, blues and RnB scenes, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer.
A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.
In 1980 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners. Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!
