Re: Laurence Jones

See Laurence's upcoming  tour with Glenn Hughes, due to start this week, has been postponed due to Glenn succumbing to health problems (not serious but been advised by doctor to rest).

Re-organised dates to be announced....

Re: Laurence Jones

Laurence's latest album is available to  pre-order now, with some tasty, design-your-own package deals - album, Laurence Jones Band will be released Sept 27th.
First single from above; I'm Waiting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvXNj1l0GEg

From the look of the publicity pics, looks like they've been spending a little too much time with certain 1970's rock icons...
So, their own UK headline tour for Nov/Dec looks like this:-

Nov22 Fri Norwich   The Waterfront Studio
Nov23 Sat London   Oslo
Nov24 Sun Southampton  The 1865
Nov26 Tue Shoreham-by-Sea  Ropetackle Arts Centre
Nov30 Sat Newcastle upon Tyne   The Cluny
Dec01 Sun Glasgow  Òran Mór
Dec03 Tue Sheffield   The Greystones
Dec04 Wed Chester   The Live Rooms
Dec05 Thu Birmingham   Actress And Bishop
Dec07 Sat Leek   Foxlowe Arts Centre
Dec08 Sun Nottingham   Bodega Nottingham
Dec12 Thu Leeds   Lending Room
Dec13 Fri  Manchester   Night & Day Cafe

Re: Laurence Jones

That's a bit of a surprise - LJ's Cluny gig on Saturday night (30th Nov) is slated to be down in Cluny2; main room given over to The Specials LTD  (tribute band to The Specials), Door time for LJ - 7:30pm
If going along, check the doors just to make sure... mind, I bet Bennett could do a good Jerry Dammers.

Re: Laurence Jones

Darlington Forum - July 15th....

Well, there may be a brief lull in the weather, but it was a hot night down at Darlington Forum, Laurence Jones and his band of miscreants in town: think it must have been June 2018 last our paths crossed (Durham Blues Festival...)

Anyway, so what's been happening since; well there's a couple of new[er] faces in the band, and I don't mean Jack Alexander Timmis beard... And Laurence himself is also not so much a fresh-faced as fuzz-faced, but the fret-burning remains unchanged despite the lay-off, and even a couple of new numbers (have you pre-ordered the new album?).

There's still Thunder In The Sky and the Hendrix was knocked back a little to Purple Haze; otherwise it sounds a little like Laurence is sheading the "Blues" skin for something a little more 80s hard/melodic rock, Stop Moving The House having received a more Quo-like make over, however, there's still enough there like a romping Before You Accuse Me to remind us why Laurence was Best Young Player multiple times in the UK Blues awards.
