AN EVENING WITH JOE BROWN
With a history that spans music hall, skiffle, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Theatre, Films, TV, Radio and even Circus (his Grandfather performed with Buffalo Bill), there is no denying that Joe Brown MBE has a varied and entertaining background.
A musical talent that has successfully traversed the years, Joe brings his solo ‘audience with’ show to King’s Hall, Ilkley on Monday 5 February 2018.
JUST JOE will see Joe talk about his early days, growing up in a pub in London’s East End, discovering Skiffle, becoming a Rock ‘N’ Roll pioneer and touring with the likes of Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and Gene Vincent before headlining shows with The Beatles as opening act. The heady days of Rock ‘N’ Roll will be laid bare and the evening promises to be an intimate glimpse into the hectic world of one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved performers.
This show however will not only be stories and anecdotes it will feature a lot of music. Aided and abetted by Joe’s old friend Henry Gross, Joe will play many a song and do what he does best – entertain with a capital E.
US born Henry Gross is no stranger to the stage either. A superlative guitarist, he founded the chart-topping group Sha Na Na and was the youngest musician to play Woodstock. Subsequently he built a significant solo career and regularly performs Shannon, his self-penned No 1 worldwide hit.
Joe commands a stage like no other. His musical skills are legend, his repartee renowned. Indeed, Joe Brown – up close and personal – is an entertaining treat not to be missed!
