After over a decade of touring the UK , Europe and USA with the likes of Eddie Martin , Innes Sibun and American artists such as Johnny Adams , Larry Garner and Many others, Mike Hoddinott decided to use some of the great players he had worked with over the years and form his own band.  Since it all started in 1999, the band have  played Festivals in Europe and the UK and recorded two live albums and has a reputation for its blues / jazz fusion crossovers. All the songs performed are covers of well known and more obscure pieces arranged by Mike with lots of help from the band. A recent line up change has see Pete Gage take time away to concentrate on his own band. His replacement has been the phenomenal vocalist Eric Okafo . An enigmatic bass player and singer in The Soul Strutters . A very popular addition to the Allstars , his vocal style has steered the band towards a more soulful side of the blues .
