Lil' Jimmy Reed Band
Leon “Lil’ Jimmy Reed” Atkins originates from Louisiana. Meanwhile, 77 years old, he brings you, like no one else can, close to the unmistakable sound of the real Jimmy Reed. A style that has had a major impact on, for example, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top and Status Quo.
He plays under the name Lil’ Jimmy Reed since he replaced the real Jimmy Reed in a club show in Louisiana, without the audience knowing, because they were too drunk to play.
Also in this band, Englishman Bob Hall, who since the 60s and 70s escorted various blues artists, including Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Slim and Peter Green.
