|Rob 'Cry Baby' Wilkinson rounded up The Hoochie Coochie Boys in the summer of 2008, to form a six-piece dance floor Rhythm & Blues band. The band play original numbers, together with Classic Rhythm & Blues/Soul. So why ‘Cry Baby & The Hoochie Coochie Boys?' Starting with The Hoochie Coochie Boys, the band has been heavily influenced by the Chicago Blues sound as well as a British influence from Nine Below Zero & Dr. Feelgood. Hoochie Coochie Boys is also a nod to the great Muddy Waters. Rob Wilkinson under pins the band with fine harmonica playing & a wailing tone, hence the Cry Baby.|
