We are very happy Victor Brox joins our Saturday early evening free gigs with a special solo performance this evening.
Manchester born blues legend Victor Brox is probably one of the most underrated champions of the British Blues scene and its unsung hero. This may well have been because he has refused to be pigeon-holed into any single category and has produced an eclectic style which often defied analysis. What cannot be disputed is his excellent singing voice, musical virtuosity and total eccentricity. He was described by Jimi Hendrix and Tina Turner as their favourite white blues singer. He is without doubt a national treasure.
He has worked with: Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillan of Deep Purple, Charlie Mingus, Memphis Slim, Dr. John, Aynsley Dunbar, Graham Bond, Alexis Korner, John Mayall, Country Joe McDonald, Keith Moon, Bill Coleman and Screaming Lord Sutch. In 1970 Victor performed as Caiaphas on the original recording of Tom Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar.
We are not taking tables bookings for this event but there will be plenty of room on stage side for you to sit and listen to the music. Don't forget to take advantage of the Happy Hour Deals during Victor's performance too!
LATER IN THE EVENING, WE HAVE JAMES BROWN IS ANNIE PLAYING THREE SETS OF SUPER COOL JAZZ / FUNK LIVE MUSIC FROM 9.30PM.
