We’ve been doing it full time for 20 + years and have a central London Sunday residency going the same, now at O’Neill’s in Carnaby that started at The Blue Posts, Soho.
We have sold out Ronnie Scott’s 8 times in a row, as well as 100 Club, played the New Orleans jazz & Heritage Festival on many an occasion, have toured the world. Brothers/co leaders Emile & Ben Martyn have played with Maceo Parker, Dr. John, Ronnie Wood, KT Tunstall, Paul Jones, Jon Cleary, Fats Domino band, Preservation Hall and a host of other world class musicians.
Although originally from the UK they both lived in New Orleans for 13 years where they learnt their craft and return to play there every year. Now based in London and play a combination of originals and covers.
Our pianist Dean Ross is from Kansas City USA along with horn players Finlay Milne, Rob Pearce.
We’ve also played the re-opening of the Ealing Blues Club, have played Ealing Festival and Ben & Emile’s father, drummer Barry Marytn who now lives in New Orleans used to play at Eel Pie Island, the Station Hotel etc. back in the 60’s alongside the Rolling Stones.
