Live Midweek Music – Chris Lord & her Blues Express

12th August 2015
7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

A powerful and raunchy Rhythm & Blues 6 piece, Chris Lord & her Blues Express produce classic Rhythm & Blues, with the kind of exuberance and joy which belies their collective years of musical experience.

The band is driven by the superb voice of Christine Lord, supported by a heady mixture of tenor saxophone and guitar, all built upon a first class rhythm section.  Together the band merges to weave a magical spell wherever they perform.

Influences range from early artists like Bessie Smith and Big Mama Thornton, to the golden years represented by the three Kings, all the way to more modern exponents of the art like Etta James and Beth Hart; but don’t expect the same old covers –  The Express take pains to dig out some rare gems of lesser known tracks which always keep the night interesting.

Relax with food and a glass of wine on a Wednesday evening at Rhodes while listening to the very best from the vibrant local Jazz scene. Our Midweek Live Music events are now established as a ‘must see’ night for music fans of all ages and this season we’re delighted to bring you more opportunities than ever before to unwind, kick back and relax.
