Gig: Big Boy Bloater – Buckley – 27th Sept

Posted on: Thursday, Sep 18, 2008

Warrington Blues Club presents an event in the beautiful Academy Ballroom in Buckley, North Wales.  A rare opportunity to see the fabulous Big Boy Bloater in the North of the UK.

With his hot six piece band you can expect a night of hot 50s and 60s New Orleans, Texas and West Coast RnB.  Details on the Warrington Blues Club site.

With perfect timing, the excellent Blues in London website have recently published an interview with Big Boy.

For those geographically challenged blues fans, Buckley is in North Wales but close to Chester, England.

Great comment Jimbo. I agree wholeheartedly. A great new venue and a fabulous band. I was extremely impressed. A gig review coming here soon – if Grahame can find the time in the middle of his home improvement activities.
