Fresh from our sellout gig last Saturday we barely have time to breathe before we dust ourselves down for the next musical extravaganza to hit Long Street Blues Club.
Saturday 17th November
Lightnin' Willie and the Poorboys
with acoustic support from Vince Bell | Doors - 7.45pm
"In a world of guitar slingers, Los Angeles-based bluesman is a rare find. His guitar, a 1950 Gibson ES-5N has a rich, deep tone and Willie's tasteful style create a sound that's light years away from the howling Fender Stratocasters that populate so many modern blues recordings. His understated dexterity on guitar and cool, relaxed vocals form a unique style that's simultaneously laid back and steeped in tradition. " ELMORE MAGAZINE 2017.
"One of the best contemporary Blues songwriters & performers today " PETE ANDERSON/GRAMMY MULTI AWARD WINNING PRODUCER.
"He isn't a simple minded dance band leader. He developed his deceptively simple, boundless appealing style over a lifetime of musical experience..." JONNY WHITESIDE.
"What he doesn't know about putting on a good show isn't worth knowing..." MICHAEL MEES/BLUES IN BRITAIN.
These are just some of the quotes heaping praise on the man.
He is simply one of few remaining old style bluesman still plying his trade. Originally from Dallas Texas now based in Los Angeles he is simply all about the live experience.
With one of the best backing bands out of California his shows are a must see. That is why this is his third visit to the club.
At a bargain price of £15.00 this has got to be one of the best value gigs we have put on.
Tickets £15.00 in advance £17 on the door
Saturday 22nd December
Xmas Party! We Remember Joe Cocker with acoustic support from George Wilding | Doors - 7.45pm
After the success of last year's Xmas Party we have stuck to the same theme - timeless classic blues and soul.
This show led by the incredible Paul Cox brings to life one of the great British rock vocalists of all time. With a band so hot based on relentless touring with all the greats over the past fifty years our final gig of the year will truly be something special.
A great deal of last minute interest for this show so please get them early.
At only £16.00 it is the cheapest price on their current tour.
Just a reminder of what we have lined up for you in 2019 - we have made some slight changes and additions.
