An exhilarating player of the accordion, Geraint Watkins played rock & roll, blues, Cajun, and several stations in between.
From the early '80s through to the beginning of the new century, with occasional breaks when the going got too tough, he was a member of the high-living British band the Balham Alligators. The band played the pub circuit around London (and occasionally farther afield), also recording several entertaining albums. Watkins also played with Tom Jones, Nick Lowe, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Carl Perkins, Shakin' Stevens and Bill Wyman, among several noted rockers.
In the early 2000s, Watkins was often heard as a solo act, still tearing up the stage and delivering all that the wildest of his fans could want. Underneath the excitement, though, it grew steadily more apparent that he had considerable skill and musical expertise, and that the bells and whistles were icing on a very substantial cake.
