Leavin' Trunk


Leaving Trunk

Another terrific evening in prospect this Friday when East Anglia’s finest make the trip down to entertain us. You could almost call Leavin' Trunk an Essex/Suffolk blues supergroup with the coming together of two long standing pillars of the UK Blues scene; charismatic frontman Tim Aves (Wolfpack, Automatic Slim and the Rockin’ Armadillos) and veteran East Anglian drummer John Butters (Blues Situation, Groove Doctors, Mean Red Spiders). They are joined by bassman Rob ’Tank’ Barry, guitarist Craig Fillbrook and keyboard player Adam Whyatt. Their previous outings at the club have been sensational with great material performed superbly.

Two things define the music of Leavin’ Trunk: a powerful, funky groove, infused with a scintilla of New Orleans gumbo; and some great tunes - band originals and re-interpretations of classics from various obscure corners of the blues and soul catalogue. We defy you NOT to dance to this band!

Support comes in the form of slide guitar maestro Graham Hine, aka Brett Marvin, performing with his one remaining Thunderbolt, Keef Trouble on percussion. Infectious tunes and rhythms from this pair.

Graham Hine & Keef Trouble will play at 8.30pm followed by two sets from the Leaving’ Trunk starting just after 9.00pm.
