Jon Amor Blues Group [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4.00 thereafter

UK vocalist and guitarist Jon Amor, formerly of award-winning British band The Hoax, has joined forces with long-time collaborators Dave Doherty, Chris Doherty and Simon Small to form Jon Amor Blues Group. Drawing inspiration from the Blues greats of the past like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, as well as more contemporary acts like Black Keys and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the group’s sound is powerful, raw and uncompromising.

Already the energy and power of the band’s sound is causing a stir throughout the UK and Europe. The band will be touring extensively in 2012.
