The Gloucester Blues Project Live at the Red Door
Make sure you head to the Red Door on Tuesday May 22 for a fantastic evening of home grown musical talent hosted by the much-loved Maritzburg Musicians Club.
The Gloucester Blues Project will be bringing their blend of traditional blues and old school rock and roll to the stage to get feet tapping and heads bopping. The music of John Goodall (guitar and vocals), Mark McTaggart (bass and vocals), Andrew Dickinson (guitar) and Ian Dickinson (drums) is likely to leave the Maritzburg audience feeling suitably bluesy. With influences ranging from the classic roots music of John Lee Hooker to the fully loaded guitar-driven rock of Led Zeppelin, the Gloucester Blues Project is sure to impress. The band continues to work on new material and have been spending time in the recording studio putting together an album.
The band encompasses the spirit of the blues genre, while exploring this expressive musical form and bringing a new focus to the traditional structure of the blues. From renditions of blues standards to more unclassifiable originals, the band’s emotionally charged lyrics and poignant compositions appeal to a wide-ranging audience. They draw influence from the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Lang, The Derek Trucks Band, and more rock-based outfits like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC.
The Blues Project play regularly in KwaZulu-Natal and have enjoyed performing with the likes of Dan Patlansky, Southern Gypsey Queen and Josie Fields. In 2007, 2009 and 2010 they performed at the Splashy Fen Music Festival. The band play has also played at the International Blues Festival in Durban (2009 & 2010) and the Royal Show in Pietermaritzburg (2009).
They will be supported by the austere acoustic compositions of Kaiti Faul and Summer. Kaiti has played at Splashy Fen and is not to be missed.
