The Blues scene is looking healthier than it has for a long time in England.  If you want proof, then check out some of the bands already booked to come Bonn’s way next year.

Danny Bryant made a lot of new fans during his Harmonie appearance in April 2015 and is a welcome visitor next January (29th)

Royston’s finest – Danny Bryant

March (14th) sees the marvelous Scottish rockers King King on a double bill with one of England’s most highly rated young Bluesers Laurence Jones – ably aided by one of my favourite bassmen Roger Innis.  March (28th) is also the month to see one of England’s all-time favourite RnB outfits, still going strong from Canvey island – Doctor Feelgood.  Much as I would love to see former Feelgood Wilko Johnson again his songs and those of Lee Brilleaux still put many a young rock band to shame in the energy department.

Laurence Jones & Roger Innis – A Dynamic Duo

Not many English Blues bands can top the Feelgood’s for legendary status but April (25th) sees one of them in the form of The Blues Band with popular Harp player and BBC presenter Paul Jones.  In the early days Jones could be heard playing alongside founding Rolling Stone Brian Jones before going on to become singer with hit band Manfred Mann.  Oh, and did I mention he hails from my own home City of Portsmouth?

With the final Brexit actions hovering there should be no better time for English musicians to be Blue.  Don’t miss!
