Larry Miller Band + Babajack
Larry Miller is undeniably one of the must-see Blues-Rock guitarists bringing his unique showmanship to every performance. He is famous for his mesmerising guitar playing and high octane shows. Larry will be showcasing his new album, Soldier Of the Line, which is receiving huge amounts of critical acclaim. From power blues of ‘One Fine Day’ and stomping rockers like Mississippi Mama’ to the beautiful love song ‘Bathsheba’.
One of the hardest working musicians on the live music scene, he was a regular headliner at The Marquee in London and produced a barnstorming set at the Reading Festival. He is now more popular than ever and holds the record for the most encores at The Cambridge Rock Festival. Reviewing the festival the Get Ready To Rock journalist said “Crowd reaction to his performance was ecstatic …Joe Bonamassa watch out, there’s another new blues hero snapping at your heels”.
Classic Rock’s The Blues magazine readers voted Larry Miller number 3, only to be beaten by Joe Bonamassa and Walter Trout and hailed him “Keeper of the British blues-rock flame”.
“Elegantly crafted compositions … deep, expressive soloing and we, for one, are sold. Blues-rock brilliance.” Guitar & Bass magazine. “The new Gary Moore” Radio Caroline.
If you like Rory Gallagher, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Walter Trout or Jimi Hendrix, you want to see Larry Miller. This is where blues meets rock.
BABAJACK are one of the most sought after acts in the UK. Their unique blend of Blues-Roots-Folk Fusion has been dubbed an ‘intoxicating brew of blues, folk and roots music’. The songwriting core and frontline of Babajack are Becky Tate and Trevor Steger. Launched at the end of 2013, Running Man has already become a modern Blues classic. It was catapulted into the ‘Top Ten Albums Of The Year’ by the likes of Classic Rock, Classic Rock Blues and Guitar & Bass magazines.
The energy Babajack dispense at their gigs is overwhelming. Becky’s manic Roots/Funk/African rhythms and gorgeously lyrical vocals couple with Trevor’s mix of Punk meets Ry Cooder slide guitar style and harmonica to create a sound that rocks every audience. Add in the inspiring rhythm section of Tosh Murase and Adam Bertenshaw, and you’re powering the controls to 11, 12, 13, and beyond….
Trevor’s homemade growling WineBox guitars play alongside Becky’s Cajon (box drum) to define the Babajack sound. Add in a spoonful of Becky stomp and a driving rhythm section and you Blues Overload.
This is Babajack’s only scheduled performance in London in 2015.
