Best of the Blues at Cheltenham Playhouse Theatre
47 - 53 Bath Road
Following the success of their previous shows 'Old Dogs, New Tricks' and 'Faux Bonamassa', the fantastic Alex Voysey Blues Band returns to Cheltenham with their new show 'Best of the Blues'.
Whatever you love most – Delta, Chicago, Texas, British or American, you'll find it all there, performed by four outstanding musicians with breathtaking virtuosity and fun! The show also includes tracks from Alex's new trio album AV3 due for release this autumn 2023 and full band album 'Blues In Isolation' planned for release in spring 2024, working with veteran producer and broadcaster Paul Long.
Recently appointed to the board of the UK Blues Federation, Alex is a flag bearer for the new generation of blues artists. This year the band have already enjoyed sold out shows in Manchester and London, supported Mike Zito and Hardwicke Circus, and will be headlining several festivals this summer including the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival in August and Swanage Blues Festival in October. Alex is joined by Cheltenham's own bass playing force-of-nature Ben Hands on his iconic Dingwall 6 string, Gloucestershire drummer Paul Arthurs who is currently enjoying huge success with the touring Kate Bush show 'Moments of Pleasure', and Bristol keys player and musical theatre director, Andy Alpass. Together, they bring diverse musical backgrounds to the table, a huge breadth of experience, and revel in their shared love of blues. Whatever your passion, look no further for consummate musicianship and a show not to be missed.
WOW! What a Show! What Musicianship! Alex Voysey is not only a superb musician but plays with a feeling and a passion that is true to the meaning of the blues'.
