Son of Dave makes a formidable racket. He brings the Blues kicking and howling into the 21st century without thievery or pretension, creating funky ass Devil music with just his bare lips and hands. And he’s performing at the Barbican International Jazz and Blues Festival 2012.
A true bluesman, Son Of Dave sings from the heart, bitter words of women, ditties of Hellhounds and tales of the good ol’ Hollywood lifestyle. As the songs build he screams and howls the vocals between blazing harmonica solos and muttered obscenities.
Son of Dave has made his wishes and intentions known. He wants to make grown men cry, be more successful than the White Stripes, and scare off guitar driven dullness with sweet Devil music that no-one can resist.
Son of Dave performs at dBs-Live – the club at 9 Bath Street, between the Plymouth Pavilions car park and Union Street – on Saturday, July 28, from 10pm.
He’s supported by DJ Hod’guez from the famed Rambunctious Social Club sessions, playing a festival mixture of electroswing, world beats and disco-jazz.
Tickets for the night cost £10 – although you’ll qualify for £5 off if you’ve bought a ticket to the Festival’s Blues Cruise the same evening.
Tickets are available over the counter from Festival HQ at The B-Bar, on the phone from The B-Bar on 01752 242021 or online at www.barbicanjazzandbluesfestival.com and www.wegottickets.com/BarbicanJazzandBlues
