JOHN VERITY on Saturday 3rd November 2018
The John Verity Band returns to play at The Big House Blues Bar. Tickets £6 - and will be available on Skiddle soon
Best known for his time with the prog rock band ARGENT of the '70s John is on an extensive tour of the UK.
He began his music career in the early 1960's, playing guitar in various local groups around his home town of Bradford, Yorkshire, until he was offered a full time gig with a pro band the ‘Richard Kent Style’. Soon gigging – sometimes twice a night, 7 nights a week all across the UK and Europe, the band became tight in the way that only a hard working band can.
JV was spotted by Rod Argent who was looking for new lead vocalist for his band. John eventually joined Argent late in 1973 and there followed a period of intense recording and touring until the band decided to come off the road late in 1976. John became involved with various new projects both as Artist and Record Producer.
His new album 'Blue to my Soul' is JV's 20th since the 'Argent' days and finds John once again in the company of some great musicians, continuing along his chosen path of blues flavoured originals and covers. As ever, the music is powerful yet soulful, mixing UK style guitar blues influences with strong choruses, and lyrics bound to make you smile and perhaps even make you cry.
