- Play Music magazine 'Best Live Band' 2011
"Absolutely fantastic band. They got so many compliments & people saying that they were the best band they had seen at the club" Joyce Harrison, Organiser of Barrow on Furness R&B Club [Apr 2013].
“You guys rocked!. Three bands stood out for me at Broadstairs Blues Bash, one of those was Little Devils, the singer’s voice is amazing!” Kevin Beale, Blues on the Marsh [Feb 2013]
"That was fantastic!! Seriously, I wish you could play the Brunswick EVERY week! I defy anyone to not like what you just did" Gloucester Blues Club [Oct 2012]
Fronted by ‘Dutch Diva’ Yoka and including in their line-up of accomplished musicians the award winning Mick Paice, the ‘go to’ sax/harp maestro for Jools Holland, The Blues Band, Dana Gillespie, Dr. John and many more, also featuring 'Big Ray' on guitar, his sound and tone has been likened to Walter Trout & Buddy Guy, it’s no wonder that the Little Devils have made such a big impact since forming in 2010. Play Music Magazine’s ‘Best Live Band’ of 2011, finalists in the New Brunswick Battle Of The Blues Competition 2012 and 3 albums later this most entertaining of bands bring their stunning show to Keighley for the very first time. Michael Berk, of London’s Round Midnight Blues Bar mused recently in Blues In Britain magazine that acts should “interact with your audience as much as possible. You’re a musician at home and in the studio but as soon as you step on stage you’re an entertainer! Bands often forget that”. Well, not this lot!
