The Red Wagons Blues Band are the leading Jump Blues band in Italy.
Founded in 1998, The Red Wagons of Italy draws on the sounds and rhythms of the black R & B of the 40s and 50s and presents an explosive mix of boogie woogie, jump blues, rock 'n roll and swing.
The six-piece formation experiments with original compositions and interprets them with thematic cover versions of the greats of the blues such as Louis Jordan, T-Bone Walker, Percy Mayfield, Charles Brown, Roscoe Gordon, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Red Prysock, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson , Ray Charles, Louis Prima, Buddy Johnson and many more.
In 2004, the band starts working with Mitch Woods, the well-known singer and pianist from San Francisco, who chooses her as the official band during his Italian tour.
In the summer of 2007, Red Wagons will be touring Italy with Junior Watson, the "King of West Coast Blues," and with him many blues festivals.
In 2004, Jump Blueser released their first album "Ulllala boogie". This album was well received in the media. The radio stations RAI Stereo One - Radio Centro Suono play the songs of the debut album for weeks in their radio shows.
In 2012 the next great blues album of the Red Wagons Blues Band was released with Jumpin 'with friends.
It is a very ambitious project with the extraordinary collaboration of some of the most important living blues artists. Junior Watson, Sugar Ray Norcia, Lynwood Slim, Mitch Woods, Igor Prado on saxophone were invited into the studio and a remarkable CD production was made.
