Eugene Hideaway Bridges Band + The Micky Moody, Ali Maas & Peter Rees Trio
Soul drenched Rhythm & Blues at its danceable best.
If you have never danced the night away in a Juke Joint in the Deep South of the USA, then the headlining Eugene Hideaway Bridges Band will take you there. Born in New Orleans, Eugene is a nomadic, world touring musician; every year playing festivals in America, Europe and Australia. A towering man with a huge voice, playing an unparalleled brand of blues; oozing enough genuine charm to light up a small city. If you like your blues music laced with soul, funk, gospel and rock, delivered with buckets of class and warmth, then Eugene should not be missed.
Micky Moody and Papa George who are one of the most versatile and dynamic duos on the acoustic-electric circuit and though blues-based, their eclectic influences help create a multi-textured sound. As a world renowned guitarist, Micky’s work is of course, legendary and he is best known as a founder member of Whitesnake.
The name Micky Moody has become synonymous with his reputation as the original guitarist in rock band Whitesnake, with whom he co-wrote the world wide hit ‘Fool For Your Loving’. However in a career now spanning almost fifty years (he was very young when he started out!), he has also been a member of Snafu, Juicy Lucy, Frankie Miller’s Full House, Roger Chapman & The Shortlist to name but a few. An active session man throughout, Micky has initiated bands such as the Moody/ Marsden Band, Company Of Snakes and is currently to be seen with Snakecharmer and The Bad Apples.
Next in this stellar line up with a stirling rock and roll pedigree is lead vocalist Ali Maas, who has been a singer from an early age and wrote all the material for her original Indie Rock band McQueen, before immersing herself with passion and power into the blues.
Bass player Pete Rees was the regular bassist for Gary Moore. Also an in demand session man, Pete has also worked with Bobby Tench and Papa George.
Micky and the band will be performing the music they all share a love for – rocking blues with a twist of swampy, sultry soul.
