Bluefunk@the WMC
Park Lane
Poynton Northwest SK12 1RG

The future of the Blues? Very possibly. Another alarmingly young (17yrs) lad with a huge talent on guitar, fronting his own band of veteran players who can barely keep pace!! I just adore this huge groundswell of young raw talent that is keeping the blues alive. This kid is playing half the venues/festivals on the planet this year.
Support is from the Alex Mckown Band. Remember the first time Bernie Marsden played for Bluefunk at the British Legion. Well I used a trio called Inside to support him. A trio comprising 2x 11yr olds and a 10 yr old. Everyone thought I’d gone out of my mind including Bernie…… and then they blew us all away!!! including Bernie. Alex is now 13yrs old fronts his own blues band and is a veteran of several major blues festivals (Colne x3) Think I got that one right? Aah….to be young again. Tickets £8 from Garry on garrywhite10@yahoo.co.uk or 07818884324
