Blues blow in

2010-08-06 00:00

THE Gloucestor Blues Project is the next featured act at the Maritzburg Musicians’ Club at the Red Door in Victoria Road, Pietermaritzburg., on Tuesday

The band will be appearing for the first time in a while since one of their members was forced to take an extended break after an accident.

The Gloucester Blues Project encompasses the spirit of the blues genre while exploring the generic musical form and bringing a new focus to the traditional structure of the blues. From renditions of blues standards to more unclassifiable originals, the band’s emotionally charged lyrics and poignant compositions appeal to a wide-ranging audience.

They draw influence from the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Lang, The Derek Trucks Band and more rock-based outfits such as Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of Maritzburg’s premier bands — their energy and commitment to their music are infectious. Tickets are R20 and the evening starts at 8 pm.
