KEIGHLEY Blues Live have plenty of goodies coming up after this week’s gig by the world-famous Blues Band.
The winter-spring season will continue with Wille And The Bandits on March 3, Mike Sanchez And The Portions on March 24 and Geoff Achison And The Souldiggers on April 9.
Wille And The Bandits were among the four finalists in last year’s UK Blues Challenge and finalists in the British Blues Awards 2016 for best drummer and bassist.
Support will come from Ross Connor, who boasts catchy hooks, loud guitars, thumping kick drum, howlin’ vocals and footstomping blues rock.
March 24 sees Mike Sanchez and The Portions with support from Backyard Burners.
Jesus Miguel “Mike” Sanchez is regarded as one of the most exciting and charismatic performers of rhythm & blues and rock ‘n’ roll in the world.
A Keighley Blues Live spokesman said: “His indelible image as a frenetic front man, pumping powerful boogie-woogie from the piano, has attracted a following from many famous rock and blues legends who have up to work with him.”
Backyard Burners have an extensive repertoire which includes bluegrass classics, modern country numbers and rock ‘n’ roll hits.
Australia’s Geoff Achison And The Souldiggers will perform on April 9, with a show rich in blues history yet irresistibly danceable with heartfelt soul and contemporary funky grooves.
The Blues Band headline on Thursday, February 9 at the Keighley Blues Live regular venue, the Octagon on Bradford Road, Sandbeds. . Visit keighleyblueslive.co.uk for tickets for all events
