Nine Below Zero's founding members, Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham are going back to their blues roots and will perform a series of intimate, acoustic concerts as a duo.
These will be the first 'old style' blues shows the pair will perform in the 35 years they have been working together.
Covering songs by blues legends such as Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Jimmy Reed, Slim Harpo and Leadbelly, they will also play unplugged versions of well known Nine Below Zero material.
Dennis said 'we will continue to play the bigger venues with the whole band, but Mark and I are looking forward to getting up close with audiences who, like us, are fans of the blues. As well as playing the songs, it will also be nice to talk about the artists who inspired so many of the great British blues bands of the 1960s, who in turn went on to inspire us'.
The love of the blues began at an early age for both of them. Two of Dennis' uncles were big fans and both had big collections of the blues albums, and it was listening to those records that encouraged Nine Below Zero's frontman to first pick up the guitar. While Mark had an uncle in the Merchant Navy who use to bring him back harmonicas from his travels overseas. The pair first met in the late 1970s, during punk, when Dennis decided to form a blues band and harmonica player Mark was recommended to him. And by an amazing coincidence, it turned out they were not only living on the same estate in south London, but also just 14 houses apart.
Nine Below Zero were formed and went on to have great success in the early 1980s. Still performing and recording new material, Dennis and Mark decided now was the right time to go out and perform the music that had inspired them at an early age.
Dennis said 'the rehearsals have been brilliant.... Some of the best ever. We are looking forward to playing this music live. To see Mark perform in this environment is truly a masterclass and it's a little daunting for me, to be playing acoustic guitar.... no hiding behind the Marshall amp'.'
