Michael Roach

THE MICHAEL ROACH BAND
plus support Tom Doughty

Friday 7 November, 8pm
Tickets: £10 (£8 concessions)

The Michael Roach Band, eight musicians dedicated to the soulful sound of rhythm and blues. Michael Roach, originally from Washington D.C. and now resident in the UK for the past thirteen years, is an internationally acclaimed country blues artist, with a voice like warm molasses and a winning personality to match. After eighteen months of rehearsing and writing songs, Michael teamed up to form a band with keyboardist Danny McCormack and saxophonist Paul Corry, resulting in the debut release, ‘I Betcha!’ in 2006. Powerful songwriting and a big band sound prominently featuring McCormack’s Hammond organ, a three-piece brass section and the sweet guitar sound of George ‘Jackie’ Lee make the Michael Roach Band an experience to savour.

What’s this all about Ken – a comedian in the ranks?

Just a guy with the same name. Seems genuinely to be called Mike Roach but he hasn’t any gigs in the area. I let it through as it’s harmless.
