The Innes Sibun Band @ Bar Brunel
Aug 19 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

I am very happy to be gigging with good friend and fellow musical traveller Innes Sibun at the Bar Brunel in Bridgewater on August the 19th. I gigged with Innes for about 15 years and made 5 or 6 albums with him & the band, and played on countless gigs & tours. It’s always a pleasure working with him and the amazing Hammond organ player Tim Blackmore, and the groovy & reliable bass of Mr. Steve Hall. 

I cannot help steering the band into slightly fusiony waters from time to time even though it’s classed as a blues band, the spirit of Tony Williams ‘Lifetime’ group and Jeff Beck’s early solo albums loom large in my ‘take’ on the material. The great thing is that Innes digs these styles too so together with Tim & Steve, we go exploring strange and beautiful musical lands on some conventional blues forms. 

Come along and strap yourself in for a groovy session, it starts at 6:30!!
