    I saw them last year in Nottingham and they were fookin amazing, so yes, definitely.
    It might not be "the real thing", but it's still damn good.

    That thread title made me laugh.

    Weren't they all in their 80s when they hit the big time?

    Ta Belgianbob, they are doing a UK tour at the moment, last dates here in Wycombe so it would be rude not to pop along.
    Reason for asking was that memories of Nina Simone being dragged out to sing on some millenium bash still haunt me…it was god damm awful

    Dicky,
    they had some sort of Cab Calloway impersonator onstage with them last year, who was ok, but we didn't go for the singing, more for the musicianship. The bass player had to be helped on and off-stage by two lovelies, as he's 90-odd and completely blind, but he's still a damn fine musician (if he's still alive…)

    Are they still worth seeing now that half of them have popped their clogs?

    Went to see them in Cuba last year and they were great, one of the guys was so old he had to be helped on stage and off, the woman singing was great.
