The Feelgood Factor
Reviewing the “2007 Rhythm Festival” featuring John Mayall, held at a former WW2 airbase in Bedfordshire (Glenn Millers ill fated flight to Paris departed from there) the Independent Newspaper wrote:
“Mayall has an OBE for services to music, but if a band could receive such an honour it would have to be Dr. Feelgood. Despite lacking a single original member, they are the incarnation of quintessentially British Rhythm and Blues, and play a stunning one-and-a-half hour set.
The setting of this festival commemorates the defence of this country. The defence of its musical traditions could not be in better hands than the Feelgoods.”
Alan Pearsons towerblues presents Dr Feelgood at The Marine Hall, Fleetwood on Friday September 24th starting at 8.00pm. Support act is popular local combo The 55s.
Tickets are £15 and are on sale from the box office on 01253 887693 or online at www.marinehhall.co.uk.
