Geno brings the party to you The Ram Jam Band were formed around 1964 and evolved out of a group called Les Blues who were formed to rival a English group with a Black American singer called Milton And The Continentals. Before taking on Geno Washington, they had been backing a British Blues singer by the name of Errol Dixon. Their first single featuring Dixon, "Shake, Shake, Senora" / "Akinla" released on Columbia had sunk without a trace. Geno Washington was a U.S. airman stationed in East Anglia who became well known for his impromptu performances in London nightclubs.
