Sat 22nd. Sept. at DeValence
This night of rockin’ blues music for Tenby Arts Festival is presented by Tenby Blues Festival and stars The Robin Bibi Band and Sicknote Steve.
Robin Bibi is one of the UK’s top blues/rock guitarists and having paid his dues working with such names as Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Ben.E.King, The Pretty Things and Helen Shapiro, launched the Robin Bibi Band in 1996. The Band’s debut album ‘Blue Thrash Therapy’ was released a year later and quickly sold out leading to a recent re-release. Five albums on, Robin’s acoustic album ‘Fast Life Songs’ has also received critical acclaim and continues to sell well.
Blues, funk, soul, rock, reggae and jazz are all rolled together in The Robin Bibi Band’s own feel-good concoction. Above all, the Band’s aim is to give their audience a night to remember whilst guaranteeing the best British Blues Rock can offer in a tried and tested, exciting, spontaneous, power trio format.
Because of their widely known reputation with a highly entertaining stage presentation, the Robin Bibi Band are now one of the busiest bands round the music venue circuit and have played most of the major Blues festivals in the UK, Ireland, and Europe. It’s exuberant passionate, dynamic, exciting and fun! It’s music played straight from the heart, it will move your head, your heart and of course your feet!
In support we are pleased to have Sicknote Steve, who recreates the authentic sound of the original hobo bluesman Seasick Steve. No technical trickery here -the authentic guitar playing skills and vocals of Sicknote Steve invoke the atmosphere of the Mississippi Delta as he slides and stomps his way through the Seasick Steve songbook.
To audiences in the South West and Wales, the familiar bearded figure of hobo bluesman Sicknote Steve has become synonomous with a a great session of the blues, bringing with him the music of Grammy Award winning Seasick Steve.
Tickets are £10 & available on the door. Doors open 8.00pm
