The picture above shows a band at one of my favorite gigs of last year. Edinburgh Bluesrockers The Blueswater played a sweaty but glorious set at Kult41. The good news is that the Band will be returning to that very venue on 3 June. A don’t miss for all good-time RnB fans! More details HERE
There was a special treat literally ‘instore’ for visitors to Mr Music in Münsterstrasse on Tuesday afternoon. Chicago born Kal David once replaced Mick Taylor in John Mayall’s band and today, joined by wife Lauri Bono (formerly singer with Etta James) he’s happy to play some guitar at Mr Music and sell some CDs.
COMPETITION OVER – WE HAVE A WINNER!
If you missed out on free entry to Manfred Mann in our previous competition don’t despair. Today there’s a chance to snap up two guest list places for Cambridge duo Ezio at the Harmonie on Sunday (29 April). To win, just send an email: to email@example.com stating ‘Ezio Competition’ and your name. First answer received wins two guest places. Good Luck!
A pleasant surprise awaits music fans visiting the Mr Music Record Store in Münsterstrasse on Tuesday (from c. 5.30pm). Kal David and Lauri Bono will be playing live from their excellent release ‘Paragon’. When I say that the duo were in the band of Etta James and that Kal David replaced Mick Taylor as John Mayall’s guitarist (after Taylor left to join Bob Dylan) then you will know the music will be good. If you’ve visited the new Mr Music shop then you will also know the space will be limited!
Local rockers Letlowe prove they can turn it down and still make great music..
Bonn readers – you can catch the band live (and plugged!) on 5 May at the Rheinaue (RheinimpulsFestival 2018)
When people talk about longevity in the music business they could easily be referring to one ‘Man’ in particular: Manfred Mann. His first hit ‘54321’ was the theme to Britain’s pioneering pop programme ‘Ready Steady Go’ in 1964. The Earth Band, put together in the early 70’s, had some major pop hits and is still performing to this very day with Mann and fellow founding member Mick Rogers.
3songsbonn.com is offering one lucky winner two places on the guest-list for the Manfred Mann Band’s concert at the City Forum in Euskirchen on 21 April. To win, just send an email with subject ‘Manfred Mann Competition’ to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and answer the following question correctly: Name one hit of Manfred Mann’s Earthband that was written by Bruce Springsteen. If your’s is the first correct answer received you will be on the guestlist in Euskirchen with a friend. Good Luck!
