Think bags of energy and some seriously good music, and you will begin to get the gist of what ‘Blues!’ provides. From Willie Dickson’s ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’, to Big Mamma Thornton’s ‘Hound Dog’, this performance is the most entertaining lesson in blues you could hope for; the lead singer puts true fans’ knowledge to the test, using facts about all the big names to provide effective and informed introductions to the songs. As each musician showcases their instrument through short solos, it becomes evident that they are a very talented bunch. With a brass section to raise your pulse, and songs to get you quite literally up and dancing, this show demonstrates the inspiring power that live music can have.
