LEAVIN’ TRUNK is a new band, though its members may be familiar to many with a working knowledge of the UK blues scene. You could almost call LEAVIN’ TRUNK an Essex/Suffolk blues supergroup...the coming together of two long-standing pillars of the UK scene – frontman Tim Aves (WOLFPACK, Automatic Slim and The Rockin’ Armadillos) and veteran East Anglian drummer John Butters (Blues Situation, Groove Doctors, Mean Red Spiders) They’re joined by bassman Rob “Tank” Barry, guitarist Craig Fillbrook and keyboard player Adam Whyatt.
Two things define the music of Leavin’ Trunk: A powerful, funky groove, infused with a scintilla of New Orleans gumbo; and some great tunes - band originals and re-interpretations of classics from various obscure corners of the blues and soul catalogue. We defy you NOT to dance to this band!
