Who are Wild T & the Hot Butts?
Wild-T & the Hot Butts is a dutch bluesband, leaded by singer/guitarplayer TJ Broers (alias TJ Kirby) aided by guitarplayer Jaap Zweeris, bassplayer Joris Thomassen and Pieter Veldhuis on drums. The blues that's played doesn’t fit into “sectarianism of some critics” who believe that blues must have a certain form and, or of a certain age. The godfather of the blues John Lee Hooker did n’t believe in such definitions and Miles Davis said: ‘Blues is an attitude. If what I play doesn’t sound right, I go back to playing the blues...... Wild-T & the hot butts play the blues in every possible way. From the oldest cottonfields to new experiments (influences from funk, soul, jazz, rock, south American grooves and so on). But always stongly rooted in the BLUES...............
