It’s nearly a year since The Keith Allen Band played at The Retreat. They are back on Saturday 29 February with an eclectic mix of Blues, Rock, Folk and soulful ballads from such luminaries as Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Lou read and Richard Thompson to name but a few.
Roger Cooper and Fran Cooper say this about The Keith Allen Band, “He cut his musical teeth as the drummer with Marty Wildes Wildcats, but now plays guitar, harmonica and contributes excellent lead vocals. On bass guitar is George Leslie Calvert (Alexis Korner, Jonah Louie and Mike Cooper’s Machine Gun Company among many others). Lead guitar is Gordon Vaughan (KEBB). Drums are provided by Simon Baker (Pred8tur). Keith’s band is often accompanied by Drew Taylor (Spirit of the Bees) on electric violin.”
