On Saturday 9 March, Evesham Arts Centre will reverberate to the classic blues/rock of Hendrix, Clapton and Cream. The exciting power trio Voodoo Room are some of the UK’s finest musicians presenting an energetic and unpretentious live show that’s not to be missed!
Voodoo Room deliver a full-on show that features all the classic Hendrix and Cream tunes, performed with an energy and virtuosity that transcends tribute band status. The sheer musical ability of the band is a force to be reckoned with. This is definitively NOT a wig-wearing, dress-up, pantomime-style show; this is simply great music performed by great players with real pedigree: a band with real talent.
Virtuoso guitarist, Peter Orr, has been thrilling audiences throughout the UK and Europe for nearly three decades, mashing up classic riff-based rock anthems with the energy and style evocative of their time. Drummer, John Tonks, is a leading session musician with superlative touring and recording credits, including such diverse luminaries as Duran Duran, The Streets and Steve Winwood. Completing the line-up is Andy Tolman, who has played live bass for the likes of Ben E King and Rodriguez, while also fulfilling many a music enthusiast’s dream by participating in a recording session with legendary Beatles producer, George Martin. On seeing the band live, the great singer, Neneh Cherry, was sufficiently moved to sum up their appeal succinctly, ‘Incredible musicians!’, she said.
Voodoo Room’s mission is to deliver the all-time great Cream and Hendrix numbers with a true passion and energy worthy of the classic masters. Their show is beyond any tribute, it is simply a celebration of the pure power trio. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the thrill of this musical ride as it was back then!
