THE LEGENDARY RT
(IN ARTHUR HINE'S WORDS)
Arthur Hine, aka RT, has been a quiet background influence in American recorded music for over 40 years. Along the way he had a record company (Armtrac Records), managed one of the greatest unknown bands in history (Sneaky Cookin'), and wrote songs for various artists, such as Howie Wyeth and Marianne Faithful.
Raspy-voiced and grey-bearded, he is a "surprise baby," re-entering Blues performance after a 30 year lay-out. He has been taking Woodstock venues by storm with a combination of ironic lyrics, catchy tunes and off beat rhythms.
The band has also included Pete Rose on guitar, Jeff Dawson on piano, Karmik Mike Steinon drums and Bob Arkin on bass.
The ensemble's material includes mostly original material--Blues, Jazz Blues, original tunes--and some covers (Beatles, Joe Cocker, Fred Neil, Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs, Jimmy Reed, Bob Marley).
