THE BRISTOL BLUESMAN at Bristol SU Live (Anson Rooms) Sat 23 March 2019 from 1pm-2.30pm

The Bristol Bluesmen return this year to pay homage to the greats of the British Blues Boom of the 1960s. This was the decade when the electric blues took the UK by storm, popularised by the likes of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, The Yardbirds, The Animals, Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones. 
In a unique collaboration for the festival, six of the South West’s premier blues players will recreate the sounds of an era that saw the blues explode into the mainstream, bringing the electric guitar to the fore and changing the face of popular music forever.
Innes Sibun - Vocals / guitar
Pete Gage - Vocals / piano
Eric Okafo - Vocals / bass
Will Edmunds - Vocals / guitar
Joe Wilkins - Guitar
Matt Brown - Drums

Tickets: £20.00  

 You can say what you like about students....
 You cannot deny that nothing attracts cool bands like a university student union and Bristol uni is no exception.
Up in one of the prettier parts of Bristol, hidden by some trees is the Anson Rooms, the uni’s live music hall. The venue itself is a big, school like, assembly room with a stage at one end and doors leading to a bar at the side with sensibly priced Drinks.
It is a simple, no gimmicks venue that lets the bands play their music how they want to and the kids jump up and down and scream. You will generally find the indie kids at the front sweating, going crazy and the grown ups at the back enjoying the gig in a more restrained manner.

Almost every Guitar band on their way up has come through the doors. When they were littler, the likes of the White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian and Feeder have all played in this modest 900 capacity venue. A cert to keep your eye on for everyone who loves the NME and the live music scene. It is not only for students, although they do tend to get 'stuck in' the most.
It's an Over 14’s Venue if you're unaccompanied (Ages10 to 13 can go but must be in the company of an adult at all times) and they are safety conscious. Security is tight but not so in your face that it impedes on having a good time.
…Oh and really.... You can say what you like about students.
