With the authentic sound of the saxophone-led bands of the 40s and 50s, Glasgow-based quintet The Deke McGee Band perform their own brand of soulful rhythm and blues and Texas Tenor Saxophone to bring the music into the twenty-first century.
This five piece consists of Mark ‘Deke’ McGee on vocals and saxophone, Alan Brown on guitar, Tim Brough on piano and organ, Gary Grochla on bass and David Stone on drums.
As individuals the band have played with and shared the stage alongside international artists such as Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Hamish Stuart, Bill Wyman and his Rhythm Kings, Zoot Money and many others, and alongside home-grown artists such as The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, The Fratellis and too many more to mention.
As sidemen they have performed all over the world at jazz and blues festivals in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Antwerp, London, Dublin and numerous other places.
Always with good time music in mind, they aim their show at the audience’s feet.
