Paul Lamb and The King Snakes - Bullfrog Blues Club - Thursday November 2nd

Southsea's Bullfrog Blues Club have pulled of a coup, as November's gig
(Thursday 2nd November) features the return of the legendary Paul Lamb &
The Kingsnakes. 
 Paul Lamb has carved out a three-decade career as a premiere  blues
harmonica virtuoso and bandleader, and  has toured extensively  around the
world, gaining  a devoted  following. .
Born in Newcastle in 1955, Paul became a blues enthusiast as a boy and began
mastering the harmonica. Paul's inspiration came from an original source,
the legendary Sonny Terry.  By 15 Paul was playing in clubs and actually
managed to spend some time working with Terry himself, late in Sonny's
career. Paul  has also played with such legends  as Buddy Guy, Junior
Wells, and Brownie McGhee. 
By the 1980s Paul had formed his own band, originally called the Blues
Burglars, who soon evolved into Paul Lamb & the King Snakes. Landing a 
contract with Ace Records in the early '90s, they released a self-titled
debut CD, followed by numerous albums over the years. 
Paul was awarded with the British Blues Connection's annual award  " best 
harmonica player" for several years in a row whilst the King Snakes took
the "best band" title .
Paul even had a hit in 1994 in the UK Singles Chart with the track,
"Harmonica Man" (under the pseudonym of Bravado) with Pete Waterman, and
he's  also worked with Mark Knopfler, The Who and Rod Stewart, played on
BBC and film soundtracks, and various television commercials.
Paul Lamb & The Kingsnakes' new album "Live At The Royal Albert Hall" 
prompted "Blues Matters" magazine to write "If it doesn't get an award for
best true blues album it would be unfair- a blues album at its finest by
one of the best bands in blues, whether in Europe or the U.S.A. ". 
DON'T miss this unique opportunity to see a living legend!
