It’s been a long summer without Music Nights at Sunbury Cricket Club and lots of people have been asking when the Club will be starting up again. The cricket season is over now, and we are delighted to announce that our first Music Night of the new series is on Friday 22nd September when we are equally delighted to welcome back THE MUSTANGS.
The Mustangs are one of the UK’s longest-established and most critically-acclaimed blues-rock bands, with a reputation for blistering live shows and ground-breaking original albums, and they have been a favourite at Sunbury Music Nights for over ten years. They last played here at the 2019 at the Club's Gin and Music Festival, almost exactly four years ago, having headlined at the very first Beer Festival a couple of years before that, so are long overdue a return.
Now working as a power trio following the retirement of harmonica veteran Derek Kingaby, they feature the stunning voice and slashing guitar of livewire frontman Adam Norsworthy, plus the razor-sharp rhythm section of Jon Bartley (drums) and Ben McKeown (bass). Formed in 2001 they combine the power and punch of traditional R’n’B with great original songs, and are regulars at festivals like the Swanage Blues Festival, and in 2017 played at the Glastonbury Festival. Some of our patrons will have seen Adam doing a fine rocking show at one of Music Nights last year with his other band The Milkmen.
Rock ‘n’ Reel magazine called them “Truly storming, ferocious….the very definition of blues rock.” They now have around ten albums under their belt and of their most recent one, “Watertown” Metal Eyes magazine wrote “A wholly original album, a rock masterpiece. ‘Watertown’ flies to peaks unreachable to most of us”.
There’s more information at www.themustangsband.co.uk. They always do a great show for the Club and it’s an ideal way to get the new season of Music Nights under way, so we look forward to seeing you there. Tickets are £10 on the door, and hot food will be available as usual.
