Aces and the Dame blues band
Aces and the Dame were formed in late 2016, by four quite seasoned musicians brought together by their will to play the blues.
They present a live set made up of an eclectic repertoire of a few original songs, some blues standards, as well as lesser known blues not usually covered by the average band.
Evina Biniari handles the vocals – a promising singer with considerable experience in a few local blues bands and a great love for the blues.
Marios Skoufos on bass guitar is a long-time session musician, feeling equally at home playing genres as blues, rock or fusion.
Valantis Marantzas beats the drums: the newest member of the band, an active drum teacher, he has already made himself an essential part of the band’s sound.
Guitarist George «Whiskey» Stefanakis first got to know the blues in the early ’80s.
In 1987 he formed his first band called Lazy, a rock band he didn’t manage to incorporate his blues influences in.
It was 1992 when his first blues combo was formed. It was called White Boots, after a Vaughan Brothers song. They played both originals and covers, received good reviews and were quite active throughout the ’90s.
From then on, he played with a series of bands, always searchind for the right company to play the blues he loves.
