Long Street Blues Club: Gigs 2019


Saturday 21st September 2019 - Malone-Sibun Band | Special support Joe Hicks | Doors 7.45pm

Malone sibun

After playing a barnstorming gig at the end of last year we have been inundated with requests to get them back.The gig coincides with release of their debut album. This again will be a gig to savour.

Devizes own supreme axeman has teamed up with Detroit born Marcus Malone creating a great blues rock collaborations.

The new band came about with a chance meeting at a show which uncovered a surprising amount of musical common ground. Both musicians had just enjoyed the busiest 12 months of their careers and it was time to appraise their respective situations.

As Innes Sibun explains: “When the chance comes along to play with a great musician who is travelling down the same musical road as you, then you jump at it. Listening to Marcus Malone I hear echo’s of two of my favourite singers, Paul Rodgers, Otis Redding and early David Coverdale, but above all it’s Marcus’s own unmistakable style & delivery.” 

Marcus Malone has just enjoyed the most successful period of his career. His critically acclaimed album ‘A Better Man’ on Redline records has topped several ‘best of the year’ polls and he was also nominated as a finalist in the European Blues Awards.

The former UA and Motown, Motorcity artist had a diverse hard rock and soul background, before he settled in a blues/rock and direction and relocated to the UK. He played the Albert Hall with BB King and quickly established himself as a top flight blues rocker with a handful of excellent albums.

Innes always has a special place in our heart having opened the club way back in May 2008 and Marcus also has visited Devizes on a number of occasions.

Friday 8th November 2019 - Ian Siegal - unplugged 2019 | Doors 7.45pm | Show 8.30pm (no support)

Ian Siegal

We are really proud to bring this very special artist back in a completely different guise. The intimate surroundings of the club will just add to the atmosphere of this very special show.

"the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK"
MOJO magazine
2018 was another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman and renegade Americana'man. He scooped Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA.

This year he is touring a solo unplugged presentation of songs from his latest album All The Rage including a beautifully adapted acoustic version of the soul stunner, Sweet Souvenir.

Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.” While he is known as a bluesman and often seen fronting his electric band, it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match.

Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees. When it’s just man & guitar those qualities shine through even stronger.

Special support from George Wilding | Doors 7.45pm

John Coghlan's Quo

Great Xmas party show when John Coghlan's Quo make their debut appearance at the club.

The Quo were regular visitors to Devizes Corn Exchange during the late sixties and seventies with their classic line up. So we are glad that spirit of the classic Quo is in safe hands.

John Coghlan's Quo: featuring John Coghlan - The Heartbeat of Quo. Original Quo drummer John Coghlan, with his great band, brings you a night of vintage Quo from the period he performed with Status Quo 1962 - 1981.

John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band ‘The Spectres’ in 1962. The group went through a series of name changes, including Traffic Jam, before becoming Status Quo in the late 60s when Rick Parfitt also joined the line-up. In the years that followed, a string of chart-topping hits include
*Pictures Of Matchstick Men * Ice In the Sun * Down The Dustpipe * In My Chair * Paper Plane * Mean Girl * Caroline * Break The Rules * Down Down * Roll Over Lay Down * Rain * Mystery Song * Wild Side Of Life * Rocking All Over The World * Again And Again * Whatever You Want * Living On An Island * What You’re Proposing *

"'... a joyous journey of his golden past. A night of feelgood factor Status Quo classics'"
Mark Taylor Metatalk.net
For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s “Classic” period. Since leaving Quo, John has worked with many noted and diverse musicians, in his own Diesel Band; with Partners In Crime; and the ‘Rockers’ featuring Phil Lynott, Roy Wood and Chas Hodges. Other collaborations have included Noel Redding (ex-Jimi Hendrix) and Eric Bell (ex-Thin Lizzy).

In 2013 and 2014, John rejoined Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt and Alan Lancaster for the two sell-out Status Quo Frantic Four Reunion Tours, appearing all over the UK and Europe and reigniting the excitement of the early days of Quo.

During the late nineties John Coghlan’s Quo was formed and through various line-ups has enjoyed regular gigs all over the UK and Europe. The current band consists of John on drums, with Mick Hughes on guitar and vocals, Rick Chase on bass and vocals, and Pete Mace on guitar and vocals completing the line-up.

John Coghlan's Quo - The prime aim is to recreate an authentic “70’s Quo Sound” in keeping with John’s time with Quo. For Quo fans and critics alike, this time is often regarded as Quo’s “Classic” period.

Saturday 28th December 2019 - The Pink Torpedoes | Doors 7.45pm

The Pink Torpedoes

Reformed for one night only The Pink Torpedoes!

In the 1980's and 1990 they were one of the seminal West Country bands. If you like your music raw and edgy this is the band for you. Without doubt they are are one of the best RnB bands around.

At the height of their powers they all went their separate ways. Pete Gage joined Dr Feelgood when Lee Brilleaux sadly passed away. Dave Raeburn joined the Hoax as their drummer the rest is history with that band. Paul Hartshorn became one of the most in demand guitarists for miles around and bass player Pete Lowrey moved to Ireland.

Now they have decided they want to resurrect that spirit of the band one last time. A great post Xmas tonic for anyone wanting a special evening.

We are sure demand will be very strong for this one off show so get your tickets early.
