LARRY MILLER BAND - THURS 13th JAN - BULLFROG BLUES CLUB (NEW VENUE)



NEXT THURSDAY 13th JAN - THE FIRST BULLFROG BLUES CLUB IN OUR NEW VENUE!!!!!!

After more than ten years at The Pier, The Bullfrog Blues Club will be moving to The E.C.S.A. Club ( a.k.a. The Dockyard Club - though  it's NOT in the Dockyard!) ), Onslow Rd, Southsea, PO5 2NH.

This great 150 capacity venue is  only two minutes (around 700 yards) from South Parade Pier. It's got a proper stage, 
 a well stocked bar with social club prices, it's warm  and… and has...wait for it....CLEAN TOILETS!!!! 

Directions are below....... 

To make it a really great occassion, we've got the fabulous THE LARRY MILLER BAND  playing, and showcasing his latest album "Unfinished Business" . 

Larry will be joined by Simon Baker  on drums, Derek White on bass, and Ian Salisbury on Hammond Organ 

Here's what the media said.....


"Larry Miller is an exploding ball of heavy blues energy - He’s a showman, an exceptional guitar player and has the songs and band to go with it - Joe Bonamassa watch out, there's another new blues hero snapping at your heels – The crowd reaction here to his performance was ecstatic and this had to go down as best set of the day" 
-Cambridge Rock Festival 2010 

"Rockin Blues that any fan of Gary Moore & Joe Bonamassa will surely lap up. 
'Unfinished Business' is a career landmark for Larry and an album any self respecting Rock/Blues fan should have in their collection." 
Get Ready To Rock 2010 (review of Unfinished Business) 

"This gig was the official launch of Larry Miller’s new album Unfinished Business, fans of all ages came as far afield as Edinburgh and Berlin. A newcomer to Larry’s material, having heard good things by word of mouth- I was very impressed by the man himself and the tight unit behind him. 
A natural showman, Larry had the crowd in the palm of his hand from the outset, due in no small part to the obvious enjoyment he takes from playing and that feeling is reciprocated by his fans, so my only regret of the evening was that I hadn’t discovered him earlier"

DIRECTIONS  TO THE ECSA CLUB (using the Pier as a starting point....) 

Head west on South Parade, and after less than 100 yards take the first right into Clarendon Rd. 
After a short while you’ll come to a roundabout. 
Go straight on (Burgoyne Road is on the left, Waverley Rd on the right - there’s a night club on the corner). 

After about 500 yards Onslow Rd is on the left. 

As usual doors open  at 8 p.m.  SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!
