But it has been awhile since one of the founders of the band Derek Holt has been in America to play them. Now he's here and getting ready to perform those songs and many more from the 18 album repertoire the band amassed. They performed during a showcase at TommySound in White Center on June 8. The band formed in England in 1967 and became very popular in the UK performing for large crowds and the band's reputation grew.  Holt wrote "I Love You," one of the Climax Blues Band's biggest hits. It is included on the Climax Blues Band double album, 25 Years 1968–1993, released by the German label Repertoire in 1993. "I Love You" still gets over 20,000 radio plays a year in the US and was used in Finn Taylor's 2002 film Cherish and in Kevin Smith's 2008 film Zach and Miri make a Porno. Holt released six solo albums: I Love You, After the Climax, Sunflowers, Hear and Now, Paradise Lost and Full Circle. "Couldn't Get It Right" was covered by the Fun Lovin' Criminals on their album Mimosa.  When a contractural and artistic dispute arose in 1983, Holt left the band. He rejoined in 1985 and toured. The new lineup for Holt, now finally able to tour in America includes some very solid musicians. Charles Lilly, Guitar, Tony Coleman, Drums , (who spent 13 years with BB King) Rick Knotts ("Rail"), Guitar, and Mike Marinig, Sax / Keys. Holt explained, "We had a hit record in 'I Love You' and the band fell apart. That was a real shame. So we all went our separate ways and I carried on playing, just because I love playing. It's in my heart and I always thought I'd just love to go back to America and carry on, in a way, where I left off 30 years on. I've been given the opportunity to come back and what's so fantastic for me having written some of the songs is that people still remember it. So for me I can come back and sing again. It's amazing." Holt says he is still writing songs, "I tend to write for myself. I haven't got a record company. I think when you're a creative person it's like when you paint a picture. You start with nothing and by the end of the day you've probably got a picture. That's what songwriting is for me." We are using this to rehearse and I'm coming back in August to do some festivals like Hempfest and festival in Montana and another a bit later. We are trying to attract an agency and book a nationwide tour next year. During the showcase the band was tight and sounded like they had been playing together for years. Propelled by Tony Coleman's drums and the very solid backing of Charles Lilly's guitar Holt played some remarkable blues guitar as did Rick Knotts. Mike Marinig stood out on saxophone as well. Climax Blues Band will be out there in the next few months and are worth taking the time to see. They bring back the sound of great music from those decades with passion and professionalism. Opening for the band was Seattle guitarist Reji Marc who delivered a very heartfelt solo set. He's a musician to pay attention to. To book the band contact Anthony Lilly at aplillyproductions@gmail.com Reji Marc, Seattle musician.
