Cry Baby andThe Hoochie Coochie Boys formed in the summer of 2008, a six piece dance floor rhythm and blues band. The band are based in the Stoke-On-Trent area of the UK (famously known as the Potteries). Rob ' Cry Baby' Wilkinson and the Boys (Mr.G - Graham Sells, Vince Cutcliffe, Freddie Pirotta, Trevor Pinson & Andy Carr) have develpoed a real bond through their love of the blues.
Cry Baby and The Hoochie Coochie Boys are a live band who perform best when they are delivering uptempo rhythm and blues to an audience. The live shows include both original numbers and some classic R&B given the Hoochie Coochie Boys treatment.
Rob's wailing harmonic is the signature for the band, hence the 'Cry Baby' tag which defines the rootsy bluesy sound that makes up Cry Baby and The Hoochie Coochie Boys.
The Salt Glazed Blues EP was released in 2009 and recieved great reviews and won a couple of awards, the bands eagerly awaited first album titled Sweet Thing is now scheduled for release in November 2011.
As the Boys say; 'We're gonna blues Ya 'til we lose Ya'
