My next gig is Saturday April 30th, I’ll be backed by The Davy O’List Group & my friend Anders Olinder on keyboards.
Celebrate the Summer of ‘66
Fifty years ago, to the week, England were winning the World Cup and the 6th National Jazz and Blues Festival was held at the Royal Racecourse Windsor. It was Britain’s first proper rock music festival.
The line up in that critical year moved from being blues and jazz acts to bands like The Who and the Small Faces, not to mention the first unveiling of a trio with no name yet, who consisted of Eric, Ginger and Jack…. It was a major innovation.
Now 50 years later we are paying homage to that event with a special concert at the same venue, with many of the artists who graced that stage all those years ago- the original Sunshine Superman and stellar troubadour Donovan, The Manfreds with Paul Jones, Chris Farlowe (who had the number one single that week “Out of Time”) PP Arnold, Davy O’List from The Nice who sadly lost Keith Emerson earlier this year, Cliff Bennett, Geno Washington and many more with the promise of special surprise guests.
There will be a unique celebrity charged tribute to David Bowie following the Macmillan benefit record Life on Mars hitting number one. Beth Rowley will sing the blues as only she knows, and there is music from the Small Faces musical All or Nothing as well as Steve Marriott’s talented daughter Molly.
The day will be full of surprises and special guests. It is a truly unique and historic event that simply cannot be repeated. Please feel free to dress in the garb of the time and join that army of Dedicated Followers of Fashion!
The entire day is also for a good cause benefiting the Macmillan Cancer Appeal.
