Joe Brown Solo - For The First Time Ever…
Joe Brown MBE is unique, a genuine one off. With a history that spans music hall, skiffle, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Theatre, Films, TV, Radio and even Circus (his Grandfather performed with Buffalo Bill), there aren’t many that can claim such an entertaining background. He is one the very few to have successfully traversed the years and the genres and still be contemporary.
A real survivor and a mega musical talent, the musician’s musician Joe Brown has seen it all and, as his fans can testify, his tales of life on the road are, quite simply, hilarious. He has stories and jokes - and he knows how to tell ‘em.
So now for a real treat and, for the first time ever... Just Joe, the man by himself, uncut, solo, uncensored, an audience with. JUST JOE will see Joe talk about his early days, growing up in a pub in London’s East End, discovering Skiffle, becoming a Rock ‘N’ Roll pioneer and touring with the likes of Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and Gene Vincent before headlining shows with The Beatles as opening act. The heady days of Rock ‘N’ Roll will be laid bare and the evening promises to be an intimate glimpse into the hectic world of one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved performers.
This show however will not only be stories and anecdotes it will feature a lot of music, aided and abetted by his old friend Henry Gross, Joe will play many a song and do what he does better than almost anyone else – entertain with a capital E.
US born Henry Gross is no stranger to the stage either. A superlative guitarist, he founded the chart-topping group Sha Na Na and was the youngest musician to play Woodstock. Subsequently he built a significant solo career and regularly performs ‘Shannon’, his self-penned No 1 world-wide hit.
Joe commands a stage like no other. His musical skills are legend, his repartee renowned. Indeed, Joe Brown - up close and personal -what could be more entertaining and what could be more of a treat!
