The Hoax - British Blues


In 1995, the British Blues Connection presented them with the award for Blues Band Of The Year and Blues Album Of The Year. A second album, Unpossible , was released on Code Blue in 1996, before the band founded their own record label, Credible Records, and released arguably their finest album Humdinger in 1998 with new drummer Mark Barrett. As this album rode a wave of critical acclaim and commercial success, the band hit the peak of their powers on stage too, performing sell-out shows all over Europe, and opening for the great BB King, among others.

With the blues world at their feet, The Hoax disbanded at the end of 1999 to pursue their own individual projects, but this year they are reuniting to play a handful of live shows around Europe.
