“Born to play and with real personality, as he tells stories, jokes with the crowd, proudly features his excellent band and plays a spiky guitar with great panache and soul. What a find you may think and you’d be right” Blues Matters magazine
Formed in New York in 1986, The Hitman Blues Band has since played their own searing brand of Blues/Rock all over the USA, UK and Europe. This year sees them back in the UK, this time with The New York City Horns. Led by founding member, blues Grammy nominee, guitarist/vocalist Russell “Hitman” Alexander with his gravely vocals and gritty blues fretwork we are privileged to welcome them to KBC for the very first time. Russ has shared a stage with Johnny Copeland, LaVette Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, The Coasters, The Ink Spots and Whitney Houston and with influences ranging from Elmore James to The Beatles we could end up anywhere tonight
