TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
Hi Everyone , 
We are all still smiling from the sensational performance from Rick Estrin and the Nightcats at the end of last month. The band sent everyone home with a real smile on their face.
 
In just under a month we have the incredible Kyla Brox Band making her debut visit to the club and a great deal more on the horizon. 

Saturday 2nd March
KYLA BROX Band
with acoustic support from Tamsin Quinn
Doors - 7.45pm

 
“ The best blues singer of her generation” Manchester Evening News
 
A huge burden to put on shoulders so young but Kyla just takes it in her stride.
 
She has spent the last year relentlessly touring the UK and Europe picking up many accolades and rewards along the way and has
just returned from Memphis USA where she has just represented the UK in an international blues showdown.
 
Born in Lancashire in 1980, she was exposed to the passion of Afro-American music at first-hand from her blues singing father, Victor. She traces her interest in singing from age three, partly from a desire to be closer to her charismatic but distant dad. She was the late product of the marriage between Victor (Caiaphas in the original cast recording of Jesus Christ Superstar) and Annette (the ‘maid by the fire’ in the same), and, unlike her elder sisters, gifted but non-professional singers, she didn’t spend her formative years in the back of a touring van under a cloud of cannabis smoke.

Kyla Brox is the greatest British female blues singer of her generation.The line of development can be traced through Kyla’s six albums.  From the 2003 debut Window, where the tone is summery and romantic, to the acoustic Grey Sky Blue (2009), where hopes and longings are freighted with deeper emotions, via the blues/soul calling card Beware (2003), the band triumph Coming Home (2004) and the more introspective Gone (2007).

The songs have developed too: the team of Brox/Blomeley have grown into a potent songwriting force, writing in the blues/soul idiom with an individual, nicely personal touch. Kyla is now rightly established at the top of British Blues singers and with every gig and recording she is just getting better and better.

We were lucky enough to see her at The Top Secret Blues Festival last year and her sensational performance had the audience close to tears at the end. She has an incredible future we are convinced she will not be playing small venues for much longer so make sure you catch her while you can.

Devizes and the Long Street Blues Club is in for one special night!

Ably supported by the one of our most popular opening acts Tamsin Quinn this is a gig not be missed.
