HUGE MAGNET are a new garage boogie blues band featuring gold nugget JAY BALE JUNIOR on bass/lead vocals (SNEAKY WEASEL GANG), BRETSKII ‘HOT DOG’ HEARN on guitar/vocals (SUNSHINE BROTHERS/FUNKOLA/FDEL) and SLOANDOG on drums/vocals (SUNSHINE BROTHERS/VALVOLUX/THROMBUS). The music takes some retro-inspiration from boogie blues royalty like Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, pre-Hollywood ZZ Top and early ACDC (as well as the obligatory champagne and reefer) but is fresh and built to make every bar and juke joint on the circuit get loose.
Mutual love affair of all things boogie blues and a desire to play non indulgent and dorky blues!
Dave Hole, Matt Taylor and Chain, Paul Felton, John Meyer, Ivan Zar, Rick Steele, Bob Patient, The Push rods, The Gators, Paul Obrien and Thundershuffle
Los Coronas, Chris Russel' s Chicken Walk, Datura, The Wilds, The Floors.
