The newly revitalised and internationally-acclaimed Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express live at The Band! The famed B3 and keyboard player has created a distinct sound that combines jazz, rock, soul and funk, that is clearly recognizable to his millions of fans. With over 20 albums to his name, and lengthy stints on the RCA and Warner Bros. labels, Brian Auger has accumulated Grammy Nominations, 10 albums charting in Billboards Hot 100, a #1 single, and the undisputed title as “The Godfather of Acid Jazz”.

 Playing with the best of them, Brian’s bands over the years have featured Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, Julie Driscoll and even Jimi Hendrix.  In addition, Auger has recorded with great luminaries as The Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Eric Burdon and Down To The Bone. The new incarnation of the Oblivion Express is a family affair featuring Karma Auger on drums and Savannah Auger on vocals, who live up to the Auger name and make the Oblivion Express smoke. Another living legend live on the Band on the Wall stage.

This seated concert will begin at 8pm. Picturehouse Cafe Bar open for delicious food and drinks from 5.30pm.
