Curved Air - Eastney Cellars October 11th

CURVED AIR, one of the greatest British progressive `70's rock bands, are
appearing at The Cellars at Eastney  on 11th October. 

The band will feature original members Sonja Kristina - voted "Top British
Female Vocalist Of The 70's" - and Florian Pilkington-Miksa on drums, and
from their second line-up the brilliant electric violinist/keyboard player
Eddie Jobson.  They'll be joined by Kit Morgan on guitar and Rob Harris on
bass,  to complete the present line-up.

Due to the sensual vocals of Sonja Kristina and Darryl Way's romantic
violin. Curved Air were often thought of as a British progressive-rock 
version of California's It's A Beautiful Day (who have also appeared at The

Curved Air's  first  three chart breaking albums are all-time classics
-1970's "Air Conditioning"  contained "Vivaldi", their most celebrated
piece, whilst 1971's "Second Album" produced the hit single "Back Street
Luv". Their artistic peak was reached with "Phantasmagoria" (1972).

After 1973's "Air Cut" (1973), original member Francis Monkman left, and 
Eddie Jobson (a former member of Roxy Music, Yes, U.K., and Jethro Tull)
took over on violin and keyboards.
