A Brief History

The original members of The Spirits Blues Band are Lewis "Lazy Boy" O'Neill on rhythm, silly moves & vocals; Greg "The Mean Miss-treater" Lindner on percussion, vocals & general nonsense are joined by Ian "The Big Shot" Wilks on harp, bad jokes & vocals. 

Unfortunately Chris Dent - "The Master Blaster on the Telecaster" & Johnny Anderson "alias Johnny Rotten" are unavailable for current performances.

The Spirits  Evolution from 2018

The advent of the cast lineup for the band with The Back To The Crossroads Show sparked the event that shaped the current Spirits band reunion.

Playing together for the 3 veteran players - Lewis  O'Neill; Greg Lindner and Ian Wilks; after so many years just seemed so natural. 

The addition of Alex on lead guitar and dobro, Roger Beare on sax and vocals and Junior on blues bass added a great measure of fresh talent - the outcome is an amazing mix of musical personalities. 

The rhythm section really cooks and is so rock solid, while the lead players have an incredible space to work with; very much like "The Good 'Ol Days" - still sporting the fun and nonsense that the Spirits were always so well known for!

The music still has that brilliant mix of original material - while the way that the guys take to really older styled blues remains huge in tone; played with respect and a serious dash of style.
