Phil Bates at Liverpool Marina – Thursday, 12th March 2015
(Doors: 8 pm, show starts: 8.45 pm)
This gig represents an overdue and very welcome return to Liverpool by Phil Bates, a guitarist/singer/songwriter of exceptionable ability. His impressive pedigree includes being a key member of ELO Part 2 and a leading component of other ELO-related projects.
Phil has played alongside an impressive array of artistes including Duane Eddy, Black Sabbath, Robert Plant, Paul Carrack and Billy Ocean, appearing on many major stages of the world – not least, Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall.
As a solo performer, Phil boasts enviable versatility, mixing excellent original material with highly inventive versions of songs by a diverse range of composers encompassing Robert Johnson, Hendrix, Lennon & McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan.
But all of his arrangements reflect his love and mastery of traditional blues roots music and never fail to enthral and delight his audiences in equal measure. The combination of Phil’s artistry and the wonderful ambience of the Marina promises to produce another magical evening.
