Thursday 19 September PETER DONEGAN and THE BAND (as seen on The Voice UK).

Peter Donegan is the son of Lonnie Donegan, the King of Skiffle.  Peter recently made headline news when he appeared on The Voice and duetted with Tom Jones in a song his father wrote for him.  Peter is a talented musician in his own right.  A songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he plays Piano, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica, Banjo, as well as lead vocals.  He has toured with Lonnie Donegan, Van Morrison and Crystal Gale.
Peter and his great band will perform some of Lonnie Donegan's classics and lesser know recordings, combined with original numbers from his latest album which he wrote and recorded in Nashville.  All in all, this will be a great night of Blues, Country and Skiffle, and a lot of foot-stomping fun!

Thursday 23 January MIKE VERNON & THE MIGHTY COMBO

"The audience was jumping for joy as a British blues legend let the good times roll with his all mighty combo". Stephen Foster, New Wolsey Theatre.
Blues Legend, MIKE VERNON has produced albums for some of the most famous artists in British Rock and Blues history, including John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (with Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor); David Bowie; Ten Years After; Savoy Brown; Fleetwood Mac (with Peter Green, Danny Kirwan and Christine McVie); Chicken Shack; Focus; Freddie King; Climax Blues Band; Level 42 and Roachford.
Mike is probably best known as the founder of the Blues record label, Blue Horizon - a major 'ground breaker' in its time and still revered to this very day.  Maybe not quite so well-known is Mike's 'other' job - that of vocalist.  In the 1970s and early 1980s Mike was not only a member of the Olympic Runners, but also the baritone singer with Rocky Sharpe and The Replays.  Mike Vernon & The Mighty Combo has recently released their album, BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON to great reviews: ...."In fact it's a sensational band, actually!" Paul Jones - BBC Radio 2.
MIKE VERNON & THE MIGHTY COMBO have their audiences dancing in the aisles: Energising and tuneful rocking slabs of Rhythm & Blues in the vein of Fats Domino, Wynonie Harris, Little Richard and Louis Jordan et al.  Full-on 100% goodtime music, guaranteed to put smiles on faces!
THE MIGHTY COMBO features Kid Carlos - an outstanding young guitar player from Spain; Ian Jennings on upright bass; Matt Little on keyboards; Paul Tasker on saxophone and Mike Hellier on drums.
"Awop-bop-a-loo-mop-a-lop-bam-boom!"

Thursday 27 February LEAF HOUND

A rare Club appearance for this cult UK rock band!
Led by original vocalist, Peter French (also of original and recent Atomic Rooster fame), Leaf Hound was a product of the SW London rock scene of the late '60s which spawned the likes of Free and other blues-rock acts, and their 1971 Growers of Mushroom album has achieved massive cult status and now exchanges hands for over £6,000 and was voted the 'Number one most collectible Rock album!' in Q Magazine!!
Peter's reputation as a potent lead vocalist also led him to a stint with Carmine Appice's US band, Cactus.  Later in the '70s he served as frontman for the popular German act, Randy Pie, before recording his acclaimed solo album, Ducks in Flight, which featured Brian Robertson, Micky Moody and Kenney Jones.  This album has recently been re-released by Repertoire.
Leaf Hound was re-formed in 2004 and since then the band has re-issued the Growers of Mushroom album and recorded a new album, Unleashed.  Leaf Hound's Live in Japan CD/DVD and Vinyl was released 5 years ago.  2019 has seen the band wow audiences in Italy and Belgium.
Peter French's vocals on Leaf Hound's song, Freelance Fiend, was the soundtrack to the Casio G-Shock Watches advert on cinemas worldwide, and his song Too Many Rock 'n' Roll times is featured in the new Hollywood movie, Adolescence.  Peter's voice was also featured on the theme song from TV's Life on Mars.

Tonight's line-up is Peter French on vocals, Tom Smith on guitar, Peter Herbert on bass and Dominic French on drums.
