This is a very exciting band. With Dimitri at the helm on vocals and guitar, this band contains some of NYC's best players in rock and blues. A lively blues band, always with 2 singers taking turns. I usually play Green Onions or some other serious funk instumantals in the soul jazz vein when it's my turn. I also ham it up a bit on both blues piano and Organ for certain rockers. Founded by Poppa Chubby, Galea, and Dimitri, Black Coffee rotates it's members. Guitarist Arthur Neilson(Shemekia Copeland) is often in the band. Other guitar aces include big Ed Sullivan , David "Doc" French, VD. King, and Mark Bosch(Ian Hunter). The drum chair could be Steve Holley(Wings, Ian Hunter), Tom Papadatos, or Don Castagno( Debbie Davis). It's always fun because the line up is always different.
