The Dice People Rockin' Boogie Duo bring together a melting
pot of roots influences
from all over; 1930's Chicago to Backstreet London, the Thames
Delta to the Mississippi, hot rockin' boogie to acoustic blues.
Contrasting yet complimentary, outrageous examples of fingerpicking guitar and boogie woogie piano
conspire to amaze, entertain and intrigue, captivating both
R'n'B enthusiasts and new listeners alike....Music to tap your toes,
stomp your feet, holler and whoop, dance and enjoy...
Formed at the end of 2010,
a busy gigging schedule through 2011/2 saw the duo firmly
established on the Essex music scene, with regular appearances
in popular local haunts, performing both high
energy evening gigs and more relaxed afternoon acoustic
sessions. Now touring further afield, 2013/4/5 performances included Bucks, Herts, and London music
venues, with a special Chas'n'Dave/Rock'n'Roll/Cockney/Boogie
set also rockin' up a storm!
