Toby Walker & Mike Dowling
Yet another outstanding night last Tues _at_ The
Roffen........really serious music from a wonderful line-up....Corrina Greyson brought her "A Team" to The Bottleneck ~ Winston Delandro on guitar ~ Mikey on Bass (Mick
Taylor's bassist) ~ Evan Jenkins on percussion (Matt Schofield Band) & the
incomparable Johnny Henderson on Hammond complete with Lesley cab. (also from
Matt's band). That's what it's all about & despite
Manchester vs Italy on the box we were nudging 95 in the audience...a great
And we have another completely different but no
less virtuosic evening coming up on Tues 29th May when two of the finest
guitarist/singer/songwriters on the World circuit come together for the first
Little Toby Walker (New York) + Mike Dowling
The Bottleneck Blues Club, The Roffen,
These two masters of finger picking guitar will each do
a set & then join together for an improvised third set.
Each admires the other's work but they have never
played together before & this is the only gig in their respective tours
where they'll be on the stage together.
They are doing separate UK tours & both play fairly
locally in May ~ Mike _at_ The Crawley Blues Club www.crawleybluesclub.co.uk
& at Brooks Blues Bar in London www.brooksbluesbar.co.uk &
Toby will be at The Ship Theatre, Sevenoaks supported by Bagge & Armer on
Sat 12th...give Glenda a call on 01892 826040 for info & tickets.
Toby arrives on Tues night, with his brand new CD &
starts his tour a couple of days later....thanks to Geoff Henne & Roy
Middleton for their help in logistics & equipment loan.
Do check out their sites....they're loaded with
information, tour schedules & sound bites, web addresses
I have no tables left for Toby's gig & none left
for Geoff Achison on Tues 26th June but you can still book seats or just turn up
on spec. but the chances are you will be standing.
I'll give you some links in the next mailout for some
of Geoff's local gigs in June/July & some other stuff happening in Kent over
the bank holiday weekend.
Please try to give me some notice if you have to
cancel....People refuse to come along at every gig unless I can
guarantee them a seat & if I only find out on the day I have no time
to re-allocate seating & the club suffers. I don't want to do what
Pizza Express, The Jazz Café & every Theatre does....that is take money
up-front.....You can text me if need be.........Thank you for your
See you all soon,
