The Paul Cox Band – Alexander’s, Rufus Court, Chester
Thursday, 8th November
‘Britains finest blues/soul vocalist’ – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2.
With a distinguished career spanning over 30 years, Paul Cox has cut over 14 albums, opened for Ray Charles and Eric Clapton and fronted several top class bands including Frankie Millers Full House, John Slaughter’s Blues Band, Tim Hinckley’s Heart and Soul as well as his own bands, Soul Intention, The Paul Cox Band, and Fire and Water. His influences are the soul-blues style and passionate voices like Otis Redding, Al Green, Paul Rogers, Joe Cocker and Robert Plant”.
In the most recent years Paul has been working primarily with the brilliant young French guitarist Charlie Fabert, who has built a glowing reputation and is considered one of the most gifted guitarists of his generation. Together they have toured and released the album ‘That’s What We Were Born For’; judging by their presence over the UK this year, this Euro partnership is certainly a successful one!
Paul Cox guarantees great music, terrific vocals and a steamy mix of original material and traditional blues!
