Junior's Wailing
Junior's Wailing
Junior’s Wailing takes its name from the instrumental tune recorded in 1969 by British blues-rock band Steamhammer. (The tune was also later recorded by Status Quo.) The band first came together in late 2016, and is built around the exciting guitar work of Quakertown guitarist and vocalist Johnny Thompson (aka Johnny T.). Rounding out the group are three much-in-demand musicians from Monroe County: Phil Scott on keyboards, vocals, and little trumpet; Rick Madigan on Fender bass; and Tony Dellaria on drums.

Much of the band’s repertoire comes from those areas of music that have greatly influenced Johnny T.’s guitar playing: the classic blues, mid to late 60s British blues (Mayall, early Fleetwood Mac, the immortal Peter Green), and British Invasion rock and roll (Sir Ray Davies & The Kinks). All these are brought together in a biting and powerful synthesis. All four members of Junior’s Wailing would agree with something Phil Scott’s father once told him: “If you’re gonna play music, I think you have to play the blues.”
