The line up consists of Jonny Lawrie on vocals and harmonica (plus acoustic and electric guitar), Rick Lawrie on bass, Jonny and Rick have performed at many blues venues throughout the UK over the last 10 years or so. Keeping it in the family, brothers Paul & Simon Harmer complete the line up on lead guitar and drums respectively. The Harmer Boys have played in various acts over the years, Paul in Edinburgh outfit Garner while Simon raised hell in the Juke Joint Boogie Blues Band. Drawing on many influences from as diverse a path as contemporary artists such as The Hoax to the established Blues kings such as Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Sonny Boy Williamson.
