GENO WASHINGTON






Washington was stationed in England with the United States Air Force during the early 1960s. While stationed in East Anglia, Washington became known as a frequent stand-in at gigs around London. When guitarist Pete Gage saw him at a nightclub in 1965, he asked Washington to join his new group that was to become Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band. They had a number of moderate UK Singles Chart hits during 1966-1967 on the Pye label.
