Otis Grand & The Big Blues Band + Ramon Goose on Friday 17th January 2020
January Blues Festival presents OTIS GRAND & THE DANCE-KINGS + special guests: ZORA...
“One of the Greatest Blues Guitarists of all time” – Guitarist Magazine
“Otis Grand is Britain’s Best Blues Guitarist since Peter Green” – Blueprint Magazine
“You play like I used to when I was young” – B.B. King
Otis Grand has played a major role in the evolution of the modern blues scene in Britain. After the decline of the British blues boom of the ’60s, Otis arrived on the scene and formed his 10-pieces Rhythm and Blues band, and firmly established his act and style of blues in Britain.
Guitarist Otis Grand has been playing blues guitar since the age of 13 – Otis says: “I never listened to anyone but B.B.King and Robert Johnson for a very long time, and I am glad I’ve missed out on all the heavy blues/rock/acid thing that was going on in the ’60s. This way I have preserved the deep blues roots of my playing style, which now goes with me in whatever musical journey I am attempting.”
In 1988, Otis Grand released his first album ‘Always Hot’ with his big band. The band quickly dominated the UK blues scene. Otis has also appeared as an opening act for such major stars as John Lee Hooker, B.B.King, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Steve Winwood.
This event is for over 18s only - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
