Larry Miller Band- Kettering Cornmarket
In Classic Rock's Blues reader's poll Larry Miller was voted no.3 only beaten by Joe Bonamassa and Walter Trout. So this was clearly someone who had to be taken very seriously indeed. Add to that someone hailed as the new 'Gary Moore' and filling the niche left behind by Rory Gallagher then praise doesn't come much higher. The Cornmarket is a lovely intimate little venue in Kettering.Dave Morse and Richard Boyles are the founders of 'Cornmarket Blues'and to promote blues/rock music in Kettering and after two SOLD OUT concerts are moving to a larger purpose built venue in Corby with much better audience and artist facilities. On 2nd May 2015 they are moving to a purpose built venue in Corby called The Raven Hall. Increased capacity of 300, partial seating, real ale bar, separate bar, food, accomodation and FREE on site parking. The venue has a great PA and light system to enhance your enjoyment of the show. Meanwhile Larry Miler continued to prove just what a showman and performer he is. Mixing his own large back catalogue with a few covers all expertly and elegantly crafted. Highlights included the Peter Green classic 'need your love so bad' and Rory Gallagher's 'walkin on hot coals'. On tonight's evidence it is not surprising that 'Blues Matters Magazine' write 'The most fiery and exciting blues rock guitarist on the current scene. Just a word for the excellent supporting act 'Albany Down' who really put on a great set and a bad to keep an eye open for.
