One week to go…..
Posted on: Friday, Sep 7, 2007
As previously mentioned, next Friday 14th Sept is the opening night of the autumn season at the Warrington Blues Club. Don’t forget that you can see the excellent multinational band Memo Gonzalez and the Bluescasters. A special band who are close to my heart are playing the support slot behind Memo and the boys.
The founder members of the well loved and well remembered northwest blues band Down At Antones will be the support at Warrington. The band are currenty working under the name of Band of Thieves but are looking for a new name for the blues outfit (the soul band will continue to use the Band of Thieves name). Ace vocalist and guitarist Neil Partington is leading the group as bandleader and hard taskmaster. He is joined by his old sparring partner Ken Peace (me) on various fat-toned harmonicas. The Down at Antones boys are joined by Steve, Nick and Glen on bass, drums and keys.
If anyone has suggestions for a good name for the band then please leave as a comment on this this post. The winner will receive a big bluesy hug from his/her band member of choice.
Here’s a picture from the 1990s archives. Please note that Ken is a little broader and greyer than before and will not be wearing the dodgy early 90s glasses, Neil no longer wears a quiff (thank goodness).
