Milford Blues Night: Dan Sowerby Band: Saturday 22 November 2014


The next in the series of Milford Blues night is on Saturday 22 November, featuring The Dan Sowerby Band. The venue is The Milford-on-Sea Community Centre and tickets (£9) are on sale in advance. The show starts at 8pm ( doors open 7.30pm)

 The Dan Sowerby Band were finalists in the UK wide search for the best new blues talent: New Brunswick Battle of the Blues 2011.

The band’s set is a wonderful blues ride from seriously upbeat, rocking and dancing blues to those real soulful 'bring down the volume' moments that get everyone's hair standing up. Dan performs on both resonator slide guitar and the standard electric guitar and is backed by Matt Paull on double bass and Ben Coley on drums. Whilst only a three piece they pull off a big electric blues sound!

The band material is a mix of Dan's own amazing array of songs and many carefully chosen blues covers given the Sowerby treatment!

Before making a name for himself on the blues circuit, Dan cut his teeth working as a guitarist for other artists. Some unusual highlights include playing for soul legend The Drifters and playing in bands supporting acts, including Katie Melua and The Manfreds. But now, using all this experience and leading his own band, Dan solely follows his own true passion; the blues.
