Geno Washington

Geno Washington was stationed at RAF Bentwaters with the US Air Force during the early 1960s, and became known as a frequent stand-in at gigs around London. When guitarist Pete Gage saw him at a nightclub in 1965, he asked Washington to join his new group, that was to become Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band.  The band had two of the UK’s biggest selling albums of the 1960s – Hand Clappin, Foot Stompin, Funky-Butt … Live! and Hipster Flipsters Finger Poppin’ Daddies.
