A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH BIG JOE PLAYING WITH HIS BAND
Big Joe Louis & His Band
Big Joe Louis is a dynamic performer and one of the busiest musicians in the
UK. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, he made London his home as a
young man and quickly established himself through live shows, soon earning
record contracts with the legendary Blue Horizon and Ace Records labels.
Acclaimed albums, as well as a string of dancefloor-dynamite 45s in the US and
Europe, spread his name and reputation far and wide and he’s taken his music
around the world, touring North America, Australasia, Africa, the Caribbean,
Russia and virtually every European country. In addition, he’s recorded,
toured and performed with dozens of veteran blues and gospel artistes, both
famous and obscure.
Never one to follow the herd, he’s built a strong and distinctive style over the
years, writing deep, original and powerfully personal true-life songs and playing
guitar in a style all his own. His ultra-tight group are Lewis Fielding (guitar)
and Peter Greatorex (drums), two fantastic musicians who are among the
most in-demand and experienced instrumentalists around today. After many
years playing together, they lay down deep feeling and great grooves, making a
sound you won’t hear anywhere else.
Seating is available for everyone.
However, please note that dancing is positively encouraged, if not actually demanded!
