Rollo Started playing Blues at the age of seventeen having been inspired by his mentor Julius Junior. Twenty years on he has developed a rich, passionate and authentic blues voice. His valve amplified Harp playing is full of tone, style and energy. The Tailshakers formed in 1998 with a vision to create a Blues band with an authentic 50's sound. They use vintage Instruments, microphones and amplifiers to create a sound reminicant of the Chess Recordings.
