Bye Bye Blues Band
The Farewell Tour
SAT 5 FEB 8pm | Great Hall
Back in the late 70s when Disco had superseded Blues and R&B, a quintet of skilled and successful blues musicians, Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness, Hughie Flint, (replaced by Rob Townsend) Dave Kelly and Gary Fletcher were determined to keep the Chicago and Mississippi sound alive and kicking. No strangers to chart success, they gathered in a London pub simply to re-kindle the flame.
Four decades, over 4,000 gigs, 30 albums and a string of singles later, they are taking to the road one last time to remind us just how durable and eternally thrilling live Blues remains. Erudite in their craft, experienced and tutored by their close early working relationships as side-men with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Howlin’ Wolf and many others, The Blues Band have filled halls and stadiums around the world.
If you’re an aficionado of authentic Blues played by richly experienced and seasoned journeymen, this will be a memorable opportunity to catch them one final time.
