Paul Jones and Dave Kelly formed The Blues Band in 1979, along with Gary Fletcher, Tom McGuinness and Hughie Flint. Paul and Dave combine as arguably the greatest British harmonica player and slide guitarist - and of course both are excellent vocalists - and regularly play together around the UK. Indeed, over three decades later the individual members of The Blues Band continue to add to their growing army of followers. Paul and Dave are staging an evening of acoustic blues and anecdotes.

As background, it is well documented that Ealing is where British groups playing the blues with electric guitars first found a home. In April 1962, The Ealing Blues Club was the location where Mick Jagger & Keith Richards met Brian Jones leading to the forming of the Rolling Stones and where they had their first residency. Simultaneously, in 1962, 1.5 miles down the road in Hanwell, the first Marshall amplifiers were being built.
