The Heroes will be showcasing songs from their highly acclaimed album, “A Brief Period Of Rejoicing” as well as playing some exciting old favourites all helped along the way by the noted Kansas City boogie pianist Dean Ross. Expect to hear an interesting mix of originals plus some hot rhythm & blues, swinging jazz & a dash of ska, including numbers from Ray Charles, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry, all influenced by the jazz and blues of New Orleans where band leaders Ben and Emile Martyn grew up.
The Martyn brother’s musical history includes playing with the likes of Dr John, James Cotton, (legendary harmonica player with Muddy Water’s Band), KT Tinstall and Ronnie Wood. With Ben Martyn on vocals & bass and Emile Martyn on drums and backing vocals the line-up is completed by John O’Neill (Madness) on saxophone and Rob Pearce on trombone. ...
