Gus Spenos - Sumpin Jumpin
Sumpin’ Jumpin’ at the Kitchen and it just might be you. No sittin’ when Gus Spenos gets on the mic backed by his All Star Orchestra Extraordinaire.

Fabulous R “n” B like it should be – lyric’s that make you cry your heart out and rhythm’s that’ll make you quiver and shake. Who can forget the likes of T.N.T. Tribble, Eddie Mack and Lucky Carmichael. Spenos not only brings the blues shoutin’ tradition to the bandstand but he’s a true mystic on the Tsax as well. Having studied with the great Pookie Johnson, Spenos is quoted, “Pookie taught me just about all there is to know and what he didn’t I came by it natural”

“As a singer, Spenos is a bluesman with a shouting style of some of the greats. He’s also a sax player with some serious chops…. Spenos has somehow doctored the sound of big bands and jump blues to sound like a brand new art form.“ John Kereft - Blues Review Magazine 2018 U.S.A.

“Spenos is one of the best purveyors of jump blues you’ll find on either side of the Mississippi.” Don Crow - Blues Times 2018 U.S.A.

“Spenos knows genre’s like swing, jump, R “n” B , blues, boogie and bop as if he kept them all in his back pocket. Effortlessly he switches from genre to genre…..” Lambert Smith - Keys and Chords 2018 Belgium
