Club 35, Carlisle
27 June 2009
John is a master harmonica player from Ireland who surrounds himself with a cracking band of consummate Blues professionals – Roger Inniss (Bass), Jools Grudgings (Keyboards), Wayne Procter (Drums) and David Day on Guitar.
You will remember Wayne from the Hoax, Jon Amor and Ian Parker, Jools plays with Bluesmove and Sherman Robertson, Roger has worked with musicians all over the four corners of the globe including the USA, Japan and Europe and David Day takes over the guitar slot from Jules Fothergill so he’ll have his work cut out meeting that standard..
Anyway John started out in the sixties with the famous Savoy Brown Blues band and has continued to win awards and play numerous gigs and festivals ever since. His gigs are ussually characterised by selling out and the audience dancing – so lets hope it continues in Carlisle!
Listen to the website, feel the quality and come down to see them oh and bring your friends!: www.johnolearyb.com
Tickets will be available later this week, £8 in advance £10 on the door from Club 35 or you can send a cheque to Chris Denton, 20 Whiteclosegate, Carlisle CA3 0JD.
Future gigs are…
July 11th – Chantel McGregor – listen to her Hendrix covers.. phew
September 19th – Innes Sibun – remember the Taildragger album – this is him live….He hasnt toured up here for some time and this’ll blow the post summer holiday blues away.
October 10th – Geoff Achison (with Sam Kelly, Paul Jopson and Spy!!) – Geoff is an australian who is equally adept on acoustic or electric. He is here for a short tour so its great to get him. Its big blues festival quality at a local venue.
