The Met in Bury
Friday 13th March
Doctor Truth are a relatively new band, formed from the ashes of the Salford Legends “The Roach Twins Band.” Mike Bowden, the singer, Rick Lacey and Chris Roach have been joined by an internationally acclaimed keyboard player, Paul Ashton and an astonishing bass player, Dave Luvin from Kansas.
As part of the Roach Twins Chris, Mike and Rick gigged all over the UK and international festivals. Chris and Rick have (independently) played at Blues Clubs in Chicago, Rick has played festivals in Denmark, Sweden and France and toured with visiting artists from the USA. Mike also gigs with Dave Williams from the Animals and co writes material for them. Paul and Chris have gigged at a huge festival on Italy. Paul plays all over the world, especially in the USA. Dave Luvin has too many credits to write. They have been around!
The live show will appeal to both blues purists and those who prefer their music with a more contemporary edge. The material is very modern in its content, it is funky modern blues played with a smile. Discussing the perils of internet dating (Down The Line), highlighting the corruption in politics (Look After Yourself) and the credit crunch (The Dealings Of The Dollar). The band tell us why we need to be careful about holiday choices (Redneck Riviera) and explain that the blues started in New Orleans in the early 1920’s and not with Gary Moore!
