Live Music – Doc K’s Blues Band

Sat April 20 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Free Entry

Bands come and bands go, some refuse to give up gracefully, some leave us wanting more, and then there’s the bands who have always been there, never disappointing, always finding that sweet spot with audiences wherever they play. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Doc K’s Blues Band.

Hailing from the North London Delta, the original line up of the band was formed by folk legend Ashley Hutchins and former John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers guitarist Geoff Krivit. There have been almost as many line up changes over time as Triggers Broom has had new heads and handles, with original harmonica player Mick Haase finally quitting about ten years ago. Since then, a constant through it all has been singer/slide guitarist Dave Barnes, who’s searing vocals compliment his raw, passionate slide perfectly. Occupying the drum stool for thirty years is shuffle master Mick Parker. With long term guitarist Malcolm Hine retiring in September 2023, the current lineup of Doc K’s features Dave Thomas (Low Down Dogs, House Red) on bass, and the powerhouse voice and harmonica of Chris Hargrave (The Bluerays, The Flying Ducks, The Looters among others) sharing up front duties with Mr Barnes. Joining them on guitar is newest recruit Dr Ika (Grapevine Blues, Dr Ika’s Pharmacy), yes, for the first time in the band’s long history, they have an actual Doctor in the line up.

This refreshed and revitalised line up is bringing a new enthusiasm to the band as is evident by the smiles and energy on display at recent gigs.

A Doc K’s gig will give you exactly what it says on the tin, a night of classic Chicago Blues, delivered with the drive and commitment you would expect from such a stellar lineup of seasoned pro’s.
