Following the terribly sad news received this morning that British Rhythm & Blues Star Spencer Davis died yesterday in Los Angeles, the festival will present a tribute on record to the incredible Spencer Davis Group.
From 6pm at The Bull’s Head – home of Henry’s Blueshouse – the Birmingham, Sandwell & Westside Jazz festival will be featuring all of the great hits of this most important and influential Birmingham band. Look out for ‘Dimples’, ‘Gimme Some Lovin’, ‘Keep On Running’, ‘I’m A Man’ and ‘Somebody Help Me’.
The evening will kick off with a short talk by Festival Director Jim Simpson who had been friends with both Spencer Davis and Spencer Davis Group drummer Pete York for more than 55 years and whose company, Big Bear Music, at one time represented the Spencer Davis Group in the UK.
Come along, bring your memories, let’s once more enjoy their terrific music.
