Contemporary blues come to Bromsgrove
11:10am Sunday 20th April 2014 in News
TWO-piece band Babajack are fast becoming one of the most sought after bands on the blues/roots/ acoustic circuits in the UK as well as Europe.
The duo combine great musicianship, passion, energy and charismatic performance to create a great show, and will be coming to Bromsgrove' Artrix Studio on May 10.
Becky Tate and Trevor Steger are the song writing core of BabaJack.
What sets the pair apart is their approach to blues - their music is recognisably infused by early blues, but by no means bound by it.
Becky brings roots/ funk/African rhythms and her beautiful lyrical voice, and Trevor delivers a unique blend of punk meets Ry Cooder using slide style guitar and harmonica.
In the tradition of the early blues, they make their own instruments.
Trevor’s homemade growling ‘WineBox’ guitars and Becky’s cajon (box drum) and stomp.
The band's latest album Running Man was released in October last year, and is listed amongst the top albums of 2013 in Classic Rock, Classic Rock Blues and Guitar and Bass magazines.
Musicians joining them on the album include Tosh Murase on drums, Adam Bertenshaw on bass and Julia Palmer Price (cellist for Nigel Kennedy) on cello.
Babajack are performing at the Artrix Studio on Saturday, May 10 starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets are available at £12.50 from the box office on 01527 577330 or online at artrix.co.uk.
