Gig : Rocky Athas – 16 May – Harbourside Club, Liverpool

Posted on: Friday, Apr 21, 2006

Here’s the press release sent by John Welsh.

Rocky Athas
at the Harbourside Club, Liverpool Marina
Tuesday 16th May 2006 (doors open at 8pm)

Texan guitar-slinger Rocky Athas returns to the UK, having made such a huge impression last year – not least at The Cavern in Liverpool. His masterful guitar playing is wonderfully complemented by the excellent, bluesy vocals of Larry Samford and a top class rhythm section. Their music encompasses slow blues, ballads, Stevie Ray Vaughan-style shuffles and powerful blues rock.

Rocky grew up playing guitar with his pal Stevie Ray Vaughan. By the age of 23, he was honoured as one of the ten best guitarists in Texas by Buddy Magazine’s Texas Tornadoes. SRV received his induction two years later. They hold this honour with such noted guitarists as ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Johnny Winter and Jimmy Vaughan. In recent years, he has recorded a number of highly acclaimed albums on the British-based Armadillo Music label.

Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.
Tickets for the concert (£10 each) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855.
