    Willie Pollock

    Willie Pollock
    (Florida, USA)

    ... came out of retirement from the music business to become the bandleader and saxophone player for his long time friend EB Davis. Willie's a master in warming up the audience for EB, telling jokes and stories - and of course playing one fine saxophone.

    Nina T. Davis
    (Berlin, Germany)

    ... piano and organ player for the "EB Davis Superband" since 1999.

    "She has an unbelievable feel for and understanding of the blues. Most of all the talent, to make my work what it is. Her love of the blues makes it a supreme joy, every time I perform with her." EB Davis

    J. 'BowWow' Bailey
    (Texas, USA)

    ... no, we won't tell you, why we call him 'BowWow'  ;-))
    J. is another long time buddy of EB Davis'. They work together now for almost 15 years. On stage, he is a pure bundle of energy and positive vibration. According to Norman Darwen, Blueprint magazine (London) J. Bailey is to EB Davis what Wayne Bennett is to Bobby Bland. He is also the leader of the "Bailey Brothers Band".

    ...the icing on the cake ... ask many of the name jazz-, soul- or blues-bands , they love to work with this excellent trumpet and fluegelhorn player. Together with Willie Pollock, they are the long time horn section of the "EB Davis Superband".
