The Dave Kelly Band Makes Welcome Return to Sunbury Cricket Club, 11th November

The next Music Night at the SCC falls on Friday 11th November and it sees the welcome return of The Dave Kelly Band. Dave has been a leading figure of the UK blues scene for 40 years, and is one of the country’s finest slide guitarists. During the ‘60s blues boom he joined The John Dummer Blues Band as vocalist and guitarist alongside his late lamented sister Jo-Ann Kelly, and toured the UK backing John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf, before he and Jo Ann formed Tramp with Tony McPhee. In 1979 he founded The Blues Band with Paul Jones, Hughie Flint & Tom McGuinness, former members of Manfred Mann and McGuinness Flint, and they are still the UK’s top blues attraction.

His own band is quite a family affair, with Pete Emery on lead guitar – husband of Dave’s late sister Jo-Ann, and another Dummer Band veteran – along with Dave’s son Sam Kelly on drums. Sam often deputises for Rob Townsend in the Blues Band. Homer Kelly-Tarrant is on bass guitar – he tours regularly with Dave & Christine Collister. Keyboard player Lou Stonebridge was with Glass Menagerie, Paladin and McGuinness Flint, and produced the first two Blues Band albums.

An evening of absolutely top class blues is guaranteed, and the Club is fortunate to welcome an artist of Dave’s stature to Sunbury once again. For more info and great YouTube videos just Google Dave Kelly.
