The The Mannish Boys is a loose coupling of great blues talent. The band changes without losing the blues thread that brought them together. Their ability to integrate new and different talent makes the blues real each time. Finis Tasby, Johnny Dyer, David "Kid" Ramos, Frank "Paris Slim" Goldwasser, Leon Blue, Tom Leavey, and Richard Innes have all played, and played well, building on each other's strengths. Randy Chortkoff is the guy who sings, plays the harmonica, and leads the blues revue.
