Gig: Trafficker – Cockermouth – 24 July
Posted on: Saturday, Jul 19, 2008
After a period of 9 months inactivity due to his relocation to this area and a succession of exams, Tommy Allen unveils his new Trafficker line-up on Thursday at The Fletcher Christian in Cockermouth prior to four gigs at The Maryport Festival on the trail (including headlining on Saturday night on the Eddie Stobart stage).
His new rhythm section is Chris Lomas on bass and Mickey Barker on drums, both very experienced and well known to most blues lovers as the rhythm section of the band Memphis in The Meantime.(This band will continue to perform with Chris and Mickey).
The boys have been rehearsing regularly and Tommy will present three or four new songs and is moving back to a more bluesy set compared to the definite rockier Trafficker of recent years.
They hope to get into the studio in the not too distant future to record Trafficker’s 4th CD.
