Paul Lamb and The King Snakes - Bullfrog Blues Club - Thursday 5th May.

This Thursday (5th May) is the real deal for blues lovers when this The
Bullfrog Blues Club present Paul Lamb and The Kingsnakes! They're
acknowledged globally as being amongst the very finest purveyors of Rhythm
& Blues.

It didn't happen suddenly........almost three decades and over 14 albums
later Paul Lamb & the King Snakes continue to entertain their growing army
of fans. Paul Lamb has spent the last thirty-some years whoopin' and
hollerin' in clubs, in concert and on festival stages, creating a personal
synthesis of his harmonica heroes and his own unique and innate talent. His
history includes representing Britain in the World Harmonica Championships,
working with his particular mentor, Sonny Terry, and with any number of
other blues artists who've visited these shores Over the years Paul Lamb &
the King Snakes have won countless awards , sold record breaking quantities
of albums and been inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame
alongside Peter Green & John Mayall.

It's been a while since the band played The Bullfrog -many years ago on
South Parade Pier - and we're delighted to have them at The Dockyard Club
for the first time!
