    With BBC Radio 2 airplay on the Bob Harris and Paul Jones show, Dani was invited on board Ruf's Girls with Guitars project, which secured a Number One hit in Italy's Blues chart. The tour ended on the legendary Blues Cruise alongside such as artists as Bobby 'Blue' Bland, Bobby Womack and Taj Mahal. Having performed 180 concerts across the UK, Europe, Canada and USA, Dani's 3rd album was release with influences from Paul Weller, Isaac Hayes & Sam Cooke. Lee Bates and Billy Newton are one of the UK’s finest Blues duos and are widely recognised as being two of the finest performers to emerge from the Northeast of England, an area long synonymous with authentic Blues players. Billy Newton is one of the hottest harmonica players around. Lee Bates is a fine guitarist and singer. Playing the blues since his teens, Lee appeared with artists such as Bob Brozman, Woody Mann and Isaac Guillory among others before joining Billy. Together they deliver a hugely entertaining set of tunes taken from the Delta, Chicago, Jug Band Blues, Old Timey and beyond all delivered with a dose of irreverent humour.
