Dutch blues-rockers and winners of the 2012 and 2016 Dutch Blues Foundation Award for Best Dutch Blues Band , The Juke Joints have been setting fire to international stages for no less than 34 (!) years. Last year alone they set stages on fire in, amongst others, Spain, Norway, Switzerland and at the Harvest Time Blues Festival in Ireland. Between all those gigs they wrote songs together for their follow-up for the 'Going to Chicago' CD they have recorded in Chicago with producer Ronnie Baker Brooks and 'guests' Eddy 'The Chief' Clearwater and Ana Popovic.
The new CD 'Heart on Fire' (European release by Continental Records at the end of Januari 2015 ) contains 10 infectious Juke Joints originals.
The Dr. Ross classic "Cat's Squirrel" and crowd favourite-to-be "Funny Little Valentine", penned by Australian rockabilly singer/guitarist Louis King, receive the passionate, greasy Juke Joints treatment and seamlessly fit in the coherence of the album.
On this 9th studio album The Juke Joints have like never before succeeded in translating the steamingly hot energy of their live shows into a brilliant studio sound.
The American Blues Underground Network has chosen the Heart on Fire CD as ‘Best European Bluesrock CD’ !
In April 2017 the new CD ‘Crossroads’ un&plugged, was released, ‘live’ recorded for the bluesprogram of BRTO Radio in Bergen op Zoom , together with the Australian gitarist Lloyd Spiegel as ‘special guest’.
The Juke Joints played festival and club shows in Ireland, Engeland, Latvia, France, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switserland, Austria, USA and shared stages with the best that blues has to offer: Kim Wilson, Buddy Guy, Walter Trout, Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers, The Paladins, The Nighthawks, Bonnie Raitt, Sonny Landreth, Roomful of Blues, George Thorogood, Little Charlie & the Nightcats, Johnny Winter, Alvin Lee, Bernard Allisson, Joe Bonamassa......
