Live Music returns to Churchdown!

On Friday 15th October the Alex Voysey Blues Band will be appearing at Churchdown Community Centre. Four stunning musicians in their own right, their new show ‘Old Dogs, New Tricks’ explores the very best of the blues from founding fathers Robert Johnson, BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughan through to contemporary artists like Joe Bonamassa and Alex’s original blues material – all with a virtuosic twist in a feel-good event that will leave you feeling anything but blue!

The band all enjoy glittering national performance careers in their own right, having worked with artists such as the Ronnie Scott Trio and James Morrison. Alex is often to be found in the rhythm section for pops concerts with the Halle, Manchester Camerata, and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and has performed the iconic James Bond theme to sell out audiences at screenings of Skyfall and Casino Royale with live orchestra.

But there’s a local connection too…drummer Paul Arthurs is a Churchdown resident and Alex’s grandparents Alan and Jill Flower also live in the village. Peter Gill on keys is a very familiar figure on the Gloucestershire entertainment scene and Ben Hands on bass hails from Cheltenham.

Following the success of their sell-out show in June, Churchdown marks the start of the ‘Old Dogs New Tricks’ 2021 tour, so come and join them for a night of outstanding virtuosity and incredible blues music, with pizzas from Openside Pizza and a bar available too!
