Announcing a fabulous brand new band The British Blues All-Stars. Featuring Pete Emery, Dave Kelly, Pick Withers, Gary Fletcher & Zoot Money.
These guys have played together in various combinations of twos and threes, but never before have all five played together in the same band. Their collective professional experience amounts to 250 years of playing blues and rock professionally.
They have played with some of the greats over the years (in no particular order): Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Dire Straits, Son House, Alexis Korner, The Allman Brothers, Jimmy Witherspoon, The Blues Band, Bob Dylan, The Animals, Nina Simone, Jo-Ann Kelly, Chris Farlowe, Maggie Bell, Ralph McTell, Dave Edmunds, Andy Fairweather -Low, Brinzley Schwartz, Nick Lowe, Bert Jansch to mention but a few, more ? OK, + Junior Wells, Freddie King, Del Shannon, Bernie Marsden, Georgie Fame, Alan Price – enough ?
Their love of the blues has brought them together to play as a band – they have just returned from a 16 date tour of Germany, Switzerland, Austria & Denmark.
