Casino are the b*stard sons of Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears. A riot of classic Motown and Stax mixed with a liberal dash of northern soul, funk and a strong streak of fresh, danceable, irresistible Liverpool melody.

The band have recently gained many plaudits supporting the Zutons, Lightning Seeds and Jamie Webster in the last year, as well as highly lauded performances at Isle of Wight Festival and Ynot Festival. They sold out their most recent hometown show in October, playing to over 800 fans and they have gained support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2 and Radio X.

Dillon, the band's singer, has a voice straight out of a Memphis Mississippi gravel pit. A unique sound for a band from Liverpool with their own brand of fabulous indie soul tunes which Motown's Berry Gordy would give his right arm for. A most rare combination of a band with tunes, melodies, danceable songs, a stormin' rhythm section and a voice which could easily have been born in Muscle Shoals.

Surrender to the rhythm of classic R n' B southern style, rock n roll with class.
