Staking their claim to being one of the best British blues bands, Paul Lamb and the King Snakes will perform at Arlington Arts Centre later this month.
Over a three-decade career and 16 studio albums, Paul and his band continue to entertain an ever-growing fanbase. An inductee in to the British Blues Award’s Hall of Fame, in company with the likes of Peter Green, Alexis Korner and John Mayall, Lamb is one of the world’s most prolific exponents of blues harmonica.
His band, the King Snakes, play a traditional style of electric blues, taking the audience from the Mississippi Delta to Chicago. Led by Paul on harmonica and backed by a line-up of top quality musicians with Ryan Lamb on guitar, Dino Coccia on drums, Chad Strentz on vocals and Rod Demick on bass.
Their 2014 album ‘Hole in the Wall’ won Best British Album from Blues Matters Magazine, along with the band winning Best British Blues Band and Paul winning Best UK Harmonica Player. Critically acclaimed, and for good reason, Paul and the King Snakes continue to be at the top of their game.
Mark Knopfler has described Paul’s playing as “blues harp as good as it gets”. Knopfler is just one of the music icons that Lamb has lent his harmonica prowess to, others include The Who, Rod Stewart and Jimmy Nail.
Join Paul and his band for a night of Great British Blues starting at 8pm. The gig is set to be memorable and they always put on a stella performance. This truly is one not to be missed.
