Chester gets the Big Apple Blues
The Hitman Blues Band
29 July 2011
On Friday 29th July, Alexander’s welcomes to the stage the legendry Hitman Blues Band from New York for an evening of energetic city blues.
Hailing from the big apple, Russell ‘Hitman’ Alexander and his US band will be performing at Alexander’s for an intimate gig as one of a few dates in the UK this year. This will be the first UK performance for the blues star with both his US band and 7 piece New York City horn section!
Hitman has a striking, charismatic personality and knows how to entertain and put on a show with superb danceable blues and great covers. He’s also an excellent song writer and has a new album to be released during the summer 2011.
The Hitman Blues Band is no stranger to the big stage. The band is currently in the UK to play the main stage at The Maryport Blues Festival with Sandi Thom and Jonny Lang and have been nominated in the US for the blues grammies.
“Born to play and with real personality, as he tells stories, jokes with the crowd, proudly features his excellent band and plays a spiky guitar with great panache and soul. What a find you may think and you’d be right” Pete Sargeant, Blues Matters magazine.
This will be one hell of a night and a rare chance to see a fantastic band straight out of New York City.
