image for Music item typeThe Dave Thomas Band at Diss Corn Hall

Music, Sat 30 Sep 2017, £12-£14


You walk up to a famous musician you admire during your first visit to the Chicago Blues Festival and introduce yourself. What's the last response you expect? 'I know you. I have one of your albums.' 

You hang out with a famous photo journalist whilst in Chicago who cheerfully tells surrounding blues luminaries 'This guy is the only Brit who can really play Chicago Blues - you'll always be able to play here'. 

You go to see an all star band at a Chicago Blues club. You met him ten years ago but are surprised when a former member of Muddy Waters' band grabs your shoulder and insists you come up on stage and play with them. All this happened to Dave Thomas: Blues in Britain 
Arguably better known in Chicago and Cleveland than in his native Norfolk Dave Thomas returns to recording after a ten year lay-off with an album where 'the blues groove never leaves'. 

'LIVE at the FAT CAT' is a ten-track album that showcases Dave - deep in the blues, funked up and easy. Catch the best that a live album offers. It's a great introduction to what you'll get when you see the band play live.
