Mick Hutton (electric bass/steel pan/cuatro/synth) Andy Panayi (reeds) Mark Edwards (piano/keyboards) Paul Robinson (drums/percussion)
After a hand injury prevented him from playing double bass, Mick emerged as composer and band-leader with the all star band the Boat Rockers. The Mick Hutton Group is a continuation of this, with Mick showcasing his multi-instrumental talents on steel pan and cuatro as well as electric bass. Joined by Andy Panayi, who has worked with Abdullah Ibrahim and Freddie Hubbard. Mark Edwards and Paul Robinson complete the quartet's mix of hard driving swing and funk.
"The sort of band every reviewer has been searching for... highly original and innovative. Inspired by the impish wit of Hutton, think Dirty Harry with a Pina Colada in one hand and a signed confession in the other." Southport Champion
