Big Pete Blues Band – Liverpool Marina
Thursday, 18th April, 2013
Doors open 8 pm: show 8.45 pm
Singer/harmonica player Pieter ‘Big Pete’ van der Pluijm’s rise to prominence started when, at the age of 23, he was hand-picked to fill the giant shoes of the late Lester Butler, the legendary leader of The Red Devils, for a European memorial tour with Lester’s original band members. Their appearance proved so popular and successful that several more tours with The Lester Butler Tribute Band (also featuring UK guitar phenomenon Matt Schofield) established Pete as one of the premier new generation blues performers in the Benelux region.
Pete has since fronted The Strikes and his own bands, The Backbones and MOCT. He will be supported on his next, eagerly awaited return to Liverpool by Sander Kooiman on guitar, Rene Stock on bass and Wuff Maes on drums, for what promises to be another magnificent gig.
Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.
