Reigning Dogs : Mike Court, Ian Gilbert, and Tim Dawes get together to give you an upbeat Acoustic blues session the blues hounds can just appreciate the musicianship and variety of Chicago, Delta and Brit Blues numbers – the dancers can get up and dance the blues away!
Mike played guitars in a Midlands based band for 14 years, supporting many of the big names of the 1970’s and traveling all over the country. Mike became known as « Mikey » a corruption of « Mike – E » as that was the only guitar chord he knew – how little has changed !
Just how many different guitars can one person use on stage?
Ian started playing piano in Oxford pubs at the age of 15, discovering Beer, New Orleans and Jazz with various bands before moving to North Devon. He performed solo gigs for a while, before joining the band saying he was looking for a more varied musical role –so we now let him have two keyboards on stage ! Ian is very proud of the fact that he is taller than Jamie Cullen
Tim Dawes on Bass, Hailing originally from East Kent, Tim brings a beard, some hats and his basses to provide us with a rock-steady foundation. He has more than 25 years experience gigging in bands with styles as diverse as Trad Jazz, Cajun and Reggae, but is rooted in Blues/Rock. (Having been a cathedral chorister as a boy, he can also sing a bit!)
