an almost acoustic Swing, Roots and Jump Blues trio, based in and around Victoria, BC.
Playing and singing material ranging from their own energetic original songs and instrumentals, right down through music of
the 1940s and beyond, they keep the beat workin on Acoustic and Archtop Guitars,
Upright Bass and 6 & 8 string Steel Guitars.
Beats Workin is:
David K (Vocals, 8-String Steel Guitar,
National Steel & Guitar) Touring internationally,
performing, writing and recording for over 25
years, David has worked with artists and bands
playing Blues to Country, Celtic to Western Swing.
Great vocals, fine steel guitar, and well crafted
original songs round off his place in the trio.
Mark Johnson (Vocals, Upright Bass) Mark’s
fine acoustic bass gives a dynamic and exciting
drive to the group. Both rhythmic and melodic, it is
a strong, vital part of the instrumental mix, and is
made only better by his fearless bass solos. A
skilled composer, Mark’s instrumentals bring even
greater dimension to this trio.
Bob de Wolff (Vocals, Acoustic and Archtop
Guitars) Bob brings extensive knowledge of Swing
and Jump Blues music into the Beats Workin mix,
along with solid rhythm and lead guitars, and
strong vocals. Fluent in many styles, he is
especially drawn to the quirky, light-hearted Swing
tunes of the 1940s and 50s.
