Gig: Forty 4 – Alexanders Chester – 17 Oct 2010
Posted on: Saturday, Oct 16, 2010
This weekend sees a rare Chester appearance from Liverpool blues and groovemasters Forty 4.
Forty 4 are a unique band from Liverpool England, who blend the rhythms of Blues, Funk and New Orleans with electric American roots music to create what they describe as ‘Rhythm & Groove’. Led by the dynamite guitar and vocals of Neil Partington the band will enthrall a packed Alexanders bar.
This gig is a fundraiser for my fellow bluesinthenorthwest colleague Grahame Rhodes but I assure you that tickets will be available on the door. The show will start with a slot by Wirral songwriter and performer Dean Johnson before Forty 4 take to the stage. At some point during the night a time machine will transport the club back to the late 1990s to rekindle the old Down at Antone’s partnership for a few nostalgic tunes.
£7. Doors 7.30 for an 8pm start.
