The Cottonhouse Shakers on stage Saturday afternoon August 27th





The Cottonhoues Shakers playing theJBs stage Saturday August 27th Limetreefestival 2011


The Cottonhouse Shakers are a difficult band to pigeon hole. Firstly the band have a jazz funk edge which is partly down to Derren Lee Poole and Neil Cannings - the bands' bassist and keyboard player, who were founding members of Blackburn jazz/funksters "False Negative". Combine this with Gone Beggin' frontman Gary Ward and jazz/rock drummer Tim Jackson and you have an interesting mix. Completing the line up are the female backing singers "The Bluesettes" who add a little soul to the mix.

The group boast the most eclectic set list on this website. a set list which ranges from Miles Davis to Hawkwind and from Hank Williams to Sesame Street - all done in their own inimitable style.

Don't be put off by the blues or jazz tag, the covers that we play are popular, lively and not taken too seriously.

Guitar/lead vox: Gary Ward
Bass:Derren Lee Poole
Drums:Tim Jackson
Keyboards : Neil Cannings
Female backing singers:"The Bluesettes".
