THE BLOW MONKEYS
+ Special Quests
With hits like Digging Your Scene and It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way, The Blow Monkeys epitomised the glamour of mid-80s pop at its most graceful and sophisticated. In the band’s frontman Robert Howard (aka Dr. Robert), they possessed a tall, charismatic singer who was both camera-friendly and clever, who appeared to be just as much at ease on the catwalk that is pop’s conveyer belt as he was penning witty, incisive songs. While quite clearly Robert’s band, though, the Blow Monkeys are also gifted three immensely talented musicians in bassist Mick Anker, saxophonist Neville Henry and drummer Crispin ‘The Pump’ Taylor. The Blow Monkeys were always the thinking person’s pop group.

NINE BELOW ZERO
“Maximum R&B” Tour
UK-based Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Group Nine Below Zero have been delighting crowds at gigs and festivals for over 40 years
After the critical and public acclaim of the classic debut LP Live at the Marquee (1980), the band kept the momentum going with Don’t Point Your Finger (1981) before releasing their third and final LP on A&M Records, Third Degree (1982).
With the iconic front cover shot by the legendary David Bailey, Third Degree is arguably the band’s masterpiece from the A&M era. Kicking off with Eleven Plus Eleven (as performed live on cult comedy The Young Ones), and Wipe Away Your Kiss, the LP mixes 60’s soul with Rhythm ‘n’ Blues.
Nine Below Zero toured with The Who and The Kinks around the time of this LP and also appeared on The Old Grey Whistle Test, and The South Bank Show.
Nine Below Zero are still going strong and the band’s most recent LP Avalanche came out in 2019 to critical acclaim.
This event is for over 18s only – No refunds will be issued for under 18s
