Three Wise Monkeys in conjunction with This is Now Agency Present: Son of Dave
Son of Dave is an international notorious one-man blues & funk party. He's got himself a new cheap suit and after the winter thaw will be taking Music For Cop Shows all over the globe through 2018. Here in the UK we'll be treated to a May tour of tunes from the new album, a bit of Bluesman stand-up, and plenty from the lucky dip bag of favourite covers and older Son of Dave classics. Plus he'll be rolling out new tunes, as ever is his habit. Whatever keep's 'em throwing shapes on the dance floor.
"I've made it through winter without getting flu. That's reason enough to celebrate with a UK May tour I think. The new album is gaining fans and spreading joy. Time to get out there and boogie for my living."
Son of Dave is fifty years old, and has lived for twenty-one years in the UK, hailing originally from Winnipeg Canada where he was steeped at a young age in the blues-bar tradition. His résumé is long, having had many other successes along the way. He plans to perform until his 80's at least, pointing out that there is no pension plan for Bluesmen, and the whole live-fast-die-young game is for kids who can't handle their booze, or their managers simply after publicity.
