On Friday 23 February, the Neeld Community and Arts Centre plays host to a tribute to the masters of classic blues rock, Hendrix and Cream. Voodoo Room, a new and exciting power trio featuring some of the UK’s finest musicians, are a tribute band with a difference, and their refreshingly energetic and unpretentious live show is not to be missed! Voodoo Room deliver a full-on show that features all of your favourite 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 tribute band – rather, it is simply great music performed by great players with real pedigree. This is a band with real talent.
Virtuoso guitarist, Peter Orr, has been thrilling audiences throughout the UK and Europe for nearly 3 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 Massive Attack, Steve Winwood, The Streets, Fish etc etc. Completing the line-up is Andy Tolman, who has played live bass for the likes of Ben E King, Jo Harman, Alfie Boe and Rodriguez, whilst also fulfilling many a music enthusiast’s dream by participating in a recording sessions 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 says.
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.
