The Robin Sunflower Band
Thursday 18th October 2018 9pm
Number 39 is once again more than pleased to welcome our old friend from Baked A La Ska, Robin Sunflower, once again with his own band.
Robin started playing the Harmonica in the 80's and joined the legendary blues band Victor Brox and the Blues Train. After hearing the amazing playing of Toots Thielemans Robin made the transition to the button-activated sliding bar Chromatic Harmonica. Robin has played with some well known artists including John Heliwell (Supertramp), Suns of Arqa and Kirsty Almeida. He is now working on a number of projects soon to come to fruition which range from Spaghetti Western music to Trance.
The Robin Sunflower Band is a melting pot of musical styles, blending together Jazz, Blues, Country, Ska, Reggae and Latin themes. The band plays songs from such diverse sources as Bob Marley, Johnny Cash and Duke Ellington as well as original material.
Lining up with Robin tonight will be John Ellis on keyboards, Mike Mellor on guitar/bass and Iain Mellor on percussion.
You can learn more at the Robin Sunflower Website which has plenty of videos to give you a preview.
