The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club falls on Friday 31st March when the Club welcomes back the BARNES BLUES BAND who attracted a big audience the first time they played at the Club a while back. They are a band who do selected gigs, as they all have a variety of musical commitments, and we are guaranteed another stunning evening of high class blues and R&B from a group of seasoned professionals who have honed their skills in a variety of big name bands over the years.
The band is led by one of the great blues troubadours of the British club scene Papa George (guitar, vocals), and features Bobby Tench (guitar, vocals) whose illustrious background includes the Jeff Beck Group, Streetwalkers, Humble Pie, Van Morrison, Freddie King and Hummingbird, along with Peter Rees, formerly of Gary Moore’s band, on bass, and drummer Darby Todd, who you have seen at the Club performing with Buddy Whittington and Protect The Beat; and who plays regularly with Alan Price’s band and Hot Leg, the new band led by Justin Hawkins of The Darkness.
This will undoubtedly be an evening of absolutely first rate blues, and one not to be missed. Please note that the entry price for this event is £10.00 (it was inadvertently announced at £7.50 the first time it appeared on the Forthcoming Events listing). It was £10 the first time they came, and it would cost a good deal more if you went to one of the regular shows at The Bull’s Head, Barnes! Many apologies for any confusion. As usual, there will be food available. We look forward to seeing you there.
