The Blues Band will perform their greatest hits at the Platform, Morecambe, later this month.

On Thursday, September 20, Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Rob Townsend, Gary Fletcher and Tom McGuinness bring their individual experiences from legendary bands together.

The Blues Band was formed in 1979 by ex-Manfred Mann group members, Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness, originally to play a few pub gigs on Paul Jones’ nights off from his then full-time career as an actor in London’s West End.

Tom’s first band – The Roosters - also included a young Eric Clapton. They approached the renowned slide guitarist Dave Kelly, who brought in Gary Fletcher on bass.

Finally, Medicine Head and Family stalwart Rob Townsend joined on drums.

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £17. Call 01524 582803.
