Over 30 albums, well over 4,000 gigs and 20+ singles and EPs later, The Blues Band train is finally pulling into the sidings. This is their farewell tour.
It is now 42 years since five experienced musicians, no strangers to the pop charts of the 60s and 70s, decided they’d ignore disco and the tail-end of punk and throw caution to the wind by returning to their solid roots – The Blues. Harmonica hero Paul Jones, charismatic front man of chart toppers Manfred Mann, fellow Manfred Tom McGuinness, drummer Hughie Flint (later replaced by Rob Townsend), slide guitar virtuoso Dave Kelly, plus bass player Gary Fletcher.
So here’s the last golden chance to experience a quintet who have kept the flame of a great tradition burning, the result being that the Blues is more popular today than it’s ever been.
