RECOMMENDED: STEVE GIBBONS

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! One of the artistes in the ELO [and related] universe who has long been overdue a mention here on ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] by Yours Truly KJS is Steve Gibbons [and, of course, his fantastic band].

Steve is perhaps best known for his 1977 Top 20 hit "Tulane" [a #12 hit in the UK Singles chart] but his musical history goes back much further. A glance at the poster [opposite, left] reminds the reader of Steve's work with the likes of Ronnie WoodBill WymanThe UglysThe Idle Race and The Dylan ProjectBut Steve has also shared the stage also with ELOLynyrd Skynyrd, The J Geils BandGeorge Harrison and Nils Lofgren [amongst many others] down the years too. His musical journey is very much intertwined with the likes of Richard TandyDave Scott-MorganRoy WoodTrevor BurtonBev Bevan and Denny Laine [also amongst not a few other 'Brum Beat' legends]. The Steve Gibbons Band continues to tour extensively to packed houses - both nationally and internationally.
Which leads me to the reason that this particular article came about! And that reason is that Steve Gibbons will be playing an unplugged set at The Acoustic Cafe in Tamworth, Staffordshire on Sunday 29th July. Steve will ably supported by BBBV and Eleanor Rigby Experience co-founder Tina McBain plus Jem McAuley and Abigail Byrne for this very special acoustic evening. Tickets are priced at just £8 each and can be purchased in advance from Wherever at Orchard Street in Tamworth and/or www.tinamcbain.com

ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommend Steve Gibbons to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 11-July-2012
