Great news from Brian Moignard, “After Saturday’s gig (9 November) I have been inundated by requests to get The Sidemen back before Christmas. We’ve been lucky enough to book them again for 7 December, so for any who missed them, or those that want to re-live an amazing night, book this date.”
The Sidemen are an occasional coming together of four great musicians from the Bucks/Berks area for an evening of Blues, Groove and whatever else springs from their creative minds and fingers.
Robin Boult – 6 string electric guitar
Steve Mills – 4 string bass guitar
Stu Maxwell – Harmonica, electric keyboard and vocals
Adam Perry – Drums
