No Good Woman & The Kingsnakes are a five piece blues band from Southend-on-sea, playing sassy, soulful blues, old and new, from the Delta to Chicago, Bessie Smith to B.B King and Nina Simone to Peter Green:
Dawnette (A No Good Woman) - Vocals
Dawnette has been singing for as long as she can remember and was the lead singer for The Honky Tinkers (also known as The HTs). She has sung jazz, soul, funk and blues with a number of groups and musicians over the years, including a few times with local legend Digby Fairweather. This No Good Woman knows what she’s about - sassy, strong, sexy, spicy & sweet, without apology. So when you come to hear her sing, you better be ready!
Johnny Vortex – Guitars
Johnny Vortex is the founder and driving force of The Kingsnakes. His true identity has not been established as he was defrosted from an ice-berg two years ago. All we know is he is approximately 4,500 years old. In the laboratory during the defrosting process he absorbed the music being played on the radio. It was of course the Blues.
Pat McNamara – Bass
Key founding member of long-established Southend Beat Group The Phrogs, Pat has played bass with a number of bands including Dooyah! with Gary Thompson and Dave Dulake. Pat plays with a stripped back and minimal approach that is sympathetic with the style and allows room for the Kingsnakes to manoeuvre.
Gary Thompson – Drums and Vocals
Having spent many years in the music business, appearing on Top of the Pops when he was the drummer with the band Tonite, Gary not only pays drums but is also an accomplished guitarist and songwriter.
Wailin’ Wayne – Harmonica and Vocals
Wayne has played with a number of local bands, becoming hooked on the blues since hearing the first album by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. He is also known for organising the Rochford Summer Solstice Real Ale and Music festivals.
