Barking Spider Promotions, who run the Bullfrog Blues Club, started out in March 17th, 2000 on South Parade Pier, and the first blues artiste booked was AYNSLEY LISTER, performing one of his first ever solo gigs on 29th November 2000. Since then he's been a firm favorite with the Bullfrog crowd. On July 5th - nearly 12 years on - Aynsley's back at The Bullfrog, solo ….. a gig NOT to be missed! After live sessions for BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris and Paul Jones and performances alongside the likes of Buddy Guy, John Mayall and Robert Cray, Aynsley became the only British artist to be featured in "Classic Rock’s" Top 10 Contemporary Blues Rock Artists. This is a great opportunity to see Aynsley "up close and personal " in a stripped down intimate setting. Expect an evening of finely crafted songs performed with a passion and conviction that will have you hooked from the very first chord. ‘Superb’ – THE TIMES “His guitar playing is a fire hazard’ – MOJO Check out Aynsley performing ‘Rain’ live at Brewhouse Arts, Burton-upon-Trent: http://www.youtube.com/user/aynsleylister#p/f/20/dmtoRjwWAfA Tickets are available NOW, buy in advance for just £8 - from "Saraband", Goldsmith Avenue Southsea (next to the Shell garage, towards Fratton Park) during shop hours, or via our secure paypal facility on the website, www.barkingspider.abelgratis.com - collect your tickets at the venue on the day of the gig.
