JUSTIN DODSWORTH – KEYS

Justin started on an old upright piano at the age of 4, playing along to Beatles and Elvis records at family gatherings. 
Lessons and exams were to follow and by the age of 8 he was playing his first payed performances at the tail end of the 1970's in clubs and pubs billed as 'The mini maestro'.



A music college course followed and in 1988 he co-founded the world's first Blues Brothers covers band that toured the country and Europe for over a decade appearing live on BBC TV in front of 15 million viewers on Noel's House party and also worked with the Spice Girls and Kermit the frog on Ant & Dec's Saturday night takeaway.

In the 1990's Justin recorded albums playing keyboards with The Specials for Trojan records, along with live performances and tours with The Selecter and The Beat and in 2002 became a Grammy award winning artist for the album 'Jamaican E.T' playing with the legendary Reggae producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry.



Recording credits include Desmond Dekker, Motown legend Edwin Starr, Steve Cradock and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.
For the last decade he has been the organ player for Ska legends Bad Manners touring the world extensively, in the last year alone playing to sell out crowds in Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Russia, Bulgaria, Spain and more!

Justin is always at his happiest doing what he does best, sat behind the keys of the Hammond Organ & Piano playing the funky soul and blues with great musicians and performers that you'll always experience at a Chicago Blues Brothers show at a theatre near you...
