The composer, the singer, the multi-instrumentalist, the legend. Hailed as one of the most powerful vocalists and greatest bassists of all time, his improvisational skill and utterly unique, free-spirited approach to composition and performance would forever change electric music.

Jack Bruce’s pioneering,  full-toned, free-wheeling playing on the electric bass revolutionised the way the instrument is used and influenced the playing of countless bassists to today, including Sting and Jaco Pastorius.  His work with bands such as Cream, with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker, and the Tony Williams Lifetime, as well as his solo material, unlocked the doors to the pent-up energy of a new approach to the art of sound, breaking the barriers of tradition and creating a kind of music that had never been heard. Come see one of the true giants of modern music up close and live in the magical intimacy of Band on the Wall. Advance booking strongly recommended.
