The John Verity Band

The John Verity Band

Rock Burger & Sides Night

Thursday 3rd May

A veteran performer at the top of his game – the playing is immaculate and full of passion, as you would expect from one of the UK’s leading exponents of blues guitar. See The John Verity Band for some blistering blues with a rocky edge!

 

John Verity has had a varied and amazing career, supporting rock luminaries such as JIMI HENDRIX, JANIS JOPLIN, THE WHO, JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS and MOUNTAIN and recording with RINGO STARR, KEITH EMERSON, GREG LAKE, TIM ROSE, ZOMBIES, COLIN BLUNSTONE, PHOENIX, CHARLIE and ARGENT to name but a few.

Recording and touring constantly, with his distinctive soulful blues edge, 2017 was John’s busiest in recent years and especially so with live appearances with his band; a fluid line-up but always with musicians of the highest professionalism and musicality.

John is also an established producer of numerous bands and musicians who have included Saxon, Charlie, and Phoenix plus his own extensive album collection, but a priority has always been ‘live work’.

Their appearance at HRH Blues, Sheffield 02 in 2016 is one of many at high profile venues where John is pleasing old friends and winning over many new fans, as evidenced from the comments below:-

‘For me, John Verity Band were the highlight of the weekend. I didn’t know what to expect but they’re awesome! I’m now a confirmed JV fan!’

'I'm listening to John Verity today. I first saw him in Sheffield recently and was utterly stunned and gobsmacked by just how good he is. This guy has the best style and touch - as a player he makes me tingle. I would suggest to you all out there- miss this guy at your peril’.
John also found the time in 2016 to record and produce the latest album ‘My Religion’ which was played on numerous radio stations, including Paul Jones ‘Nothing but the Blues’ on BBC Radio 2 and reached No.15 of the most played albums on the IBBA (Blues) charts earlier in the year.

Review from ‘The Hat Reviews’ by Peter Elliott in October 2016:

‘When I told a colleague that I had been listening to John Verity's new album, his eyes lit up – but instead of, as some of you might predict, banging on about Argent and Phoenix, he raved about seeing John recently in with talented Jamie Mallender (bass) and Liam James Gray (drums) alongside, knocking them dead with classic blues riffs at the sell-out HRH event at Sheffield O2.

This is a fine crafted album. It tells you all about the range of the artist. It has some terrific rocking moments, has some great lyrics and delivers both traditional and modern blues with some subtlety. You are left under no illusion that you are in the hands of a proper musician and vocalist who would have no problem filling a stadium, packing out any club and bringing a festival audience to their feet. And of course, it seems that is exactly what he is still doing. Go see him!’

The Motown Brothers are one of a few funky but, sophisticated groups, with an African twist, currently performing in the UK. Just 3 guys with a distinct attitude and an average of 25 years performing experience amongst them - they exude class!

Each with their own individuality and creativity they have developed THE MOTOWN SHOW which delivers “just what it says on the can”, reviving all the instantly recognisable hits churned out in the 60’s and 70’s by Berry Gordy Jnr’s mammoth stable of stars. A guaranteed evening of favourites for all ages with superb close harmonies and individual solo numbers.

Unlike most other Motown groups, as well as the experience, these fellas still have youth on their side, providing slick and modern choreography, which many say is a cut above the rest.

With this group you have the whole package, the looks, the moves and most importantly the voices.

Don’t come expecting to sit down….the music just won’t let you!
