Larry Miller Band – The Atkinson, Southport
Friday, 20th February – 8 pm
Tickets: £12 adv/ £14 doors
The Larry Miller Band is the ultimate in-your-face rhythm and blues band. Highly entertaining, polished and guaranteed to hit right between the eyes.
Larry Miller is undeniably one of the must see blues/rock guitarists, bringing his unique showmanship to every performance. Famous for his mesmerising guitar playing and high octane shows, he wows audiences across the UK and Europe.
Larry will be showcasing his new album ‘Soldier Of the Line’, which is receiving much critical acclaim. From power blues of ‘One Fine Day’ and stomping rockers like ‘Mississippi Mama’ to the beautiful love song ‘Bathsheba’.
He is one of the hardest working musicians on the live music scene and was a regular headliner at The Marquee in London and produced a barnstorming set at the Reading Festival. He is now more popular than ever and holds the record for the most encores at The Cambridge Rock Festival. Reviewing the festival the Get Ready To Rock journalist said “Crowd reaction to his performance was ecstatic …Joe Bonamassa watch out, there’s another new blues hero snapping at your heels”.
In ‘Classic Rock Presents The Blues’ magazine readers poll, Larry Miller was voted number 3 only to be beaten by Joe Bonamassa and Walter Trout, plus a 5 page article proclaimed Larry Miller was “keeper of the British Blues Rock flame”
“A rock album with blues undertones; and it’s brilliant” – Classic Rock Society.
“A fantastic guitarist” – Andy Fairweather Low
This is where blues meets rock … if you like Rory Gallagher, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Walter Trout or Jimi Hendrix, you want to see Larry Miller.
