Red Dog Saloon Band

Thursday, 19 February 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Come along this Thursday to the Bristol for a full-on night of swampy blues with the Red Dogs. It’ll be a night of groove with Dave Murphy – ‘New Zealand’s blues man’ together with that eclectic west coast kiwi style of Dougal Spier….the big man with the big sound, and with Roger Watkins on drums and Elliotte Fuimaono on bass.

Dave Murphy plays in the style of Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson and a whole host of other old blues guys. In the 1980s Dave travelled through the Unites States meeting musicians and learning blues tunes from the originals like Eugene Powell and Sonny Boy Nelson. This experience gave Dave an insight into music that has kept him in touch with the heart and soul of the blues ever since.

Dougal Speir on the other hand is more adept at ripping off lead riffs unheard of since the death of the likes of Roy Buchanan, Rory Gallagher or Jimi Hendrix!

So if you want to hear the greatest mix of country blues you can dance to, enjoy your listening time, and maybe even have a bit of a jive, let the Red Dog Saloon Band fill your needs!
