Paddy’s new group, Londonola, kicked off the year with a packed gig and standing ovation at the Bronte Blues Club on January 9th. Since a successful first gig at BluesFest in the Royal Albert Hall in October, the group is solidifying it’s new material and looking forward to recording an album in the next few months. The trio plays original homegrown music and arrangements by Paddy infused with a large dose of New Orleans spirit. The band features the formidable talents of Pat Levett (drums/vocals) and Spencer Brown (double bass/vocals) and were joined by trumpet player Neil Waters. The trio forms the house band ‘BB Kingpins’ along with guitar maestro Scott Mckeon at a new residency gig & jam at the Bedroom Bar, Hoxton every tues night.
