AN AWARD-winning blues band will be coming to Eydon Village Hall to mark a year of high quality music.
King King, who won Best Blues Band Award at the British Blues Award 2013, will be performing at the hall on Saturday March 1.
At the same awards Wayne Proctor also won drummer of the year, Lindsay Coulson bagged bass player of the year and Bennett Holland scooped keyboard player of the year. Alan Nimmo was runner-up in best guitar player award and best vocalist award too. The band was created at the behest of the Alan and Lindsay. The addition of keyboard wizard Bennett Holland and award winning drummer Wayne has spawned a band which maintains an edge of mischief.
Since they began touring three years ago, King King’s unique brand of multi-faceted blues rock has won over audiences from a wide range of audiences. These include The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, the internationally acclaimed Belgium Rhythm and Blues Festival in Peer and even Glastonbury.
The event has been organised by Eydon Live Music run by Craig and Alison Cutler. The husband and wife duo started organising live music events in 2010 to raise funds to help with the constant repair and general running of the village hall.
Among the events lined up for the rest of the year is Jawbone on Saturday May 24, Cut the Funk on Saturday August 23 and Dave Peff and Anthony John Clarke on Saturday November 8.
