Posted on: Tuesday, Apr 13, 2010
Here’s an update from Towerblues…..
Sat April 10th at Poulton Community Hall, Breck Road, Rob Tognoni Band.
Last seen at The Raikes a couple of years ago Australian guitarist Rob Tognoni brings his brand of power blues rock back with a bang! Rob only tours the UK for about 10 days each year so catch him while you can. £10 tel 01253 890927
Thurs April 22nd – Wyre Blues at The Marine Hall, Fleetwood – Tin Pan Alley
A welcome return to Fleetwood by this powerful trio. Expect some great SRV, ZZ Top & Hendrix tunes with a little classic rock thrown in for good measure. £2.50 tel 01253 887693
Fri May 14th – Studio Blues at The Lawrence House studio, Grand Theatre, Blackpool – Tom Doughty
“Tom Doughty is possessed of a deep musical soul, that magic link between feeling and movement which makes the slide guitar such an individual instrument. His touch is wide ranging, and his music is full of big feeling. In a world of derivative and imitative slide guitarists, Tom’s sound is unique and special.” Bob Brozman
£10 Tel 01253 290190
Friday June 4th – Marine Hall, Fleetwood – Buddy Whittington
Supported by Mark Thornley Band
Named by his ex boss of 15 years as “possibly the greatest Bluesbreaker of them all”. When the boss is John Mayall and the “all” includes Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout and Coco Montoya, this is no lightweight accolade.
Tickets £15 Tel 01253 887693
Thursday June 24th, Wyre Blues at The Marine Hall, Fleetwood – Greenmac
Playing all the classic songs (plus a few obscure album tracks you thought you’d forgotten) from Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac. Went down a storm at their last visit to Wyre Blues. “I knew they’d be good but I didn’t think they’d be THIS good” said one audience member.
