Rhythm Zoo on the bill at Brewery Blues in Cirencester
2:15pm Thursday 2nd August 2012 in What's On
SUMMER'S here at last and Brewery Blues have got some hot stuff for you down at the Brewery on Friday, August 10.
All the way from Cheshire headliners Rhythm Zoo will get the dance floor heaving with their trademark driving rhythms, blistering guitar work and the delicious honey coated vocals of front lady Andi Jones.
They've carved an enviable live reputation across the length and breadth of the country featuring at the Great British R & B Festival in Colne, Nantwich Jazz and Blues, Maryport and Swanage festivals and headlining at Orkney Blues.
Benita Johnson is a folk/rock singer songwriter from Stroud, her material is full of pathos powered by strong melodies and perceptive observations. Judging by the growing number of followers and plaudits she's attracting it's little wonder she's playing some of the largest venues in the West Country including the Glastonbury festival.
And it's a welcome return to Nobody's Business who will transport the audience back to the rural cotton fields of the 20th Century Deep South and the roots of the blues. Virtuoso finger-picker Danny Ward's ragtime guitar and banjo and hollering vocal style are ably supported by the harmonica and Jew's harp of Colin Elliot. A must for the Blues purists. A fourth band is yet to be confirmed.
