NINE BELOW ZERO (ACOUSTIC)

March 15 @ 19:00 - 22:30

£20.00

Formed in the late 70’s, Nine Below Zero first made their mark in 1980, when they signed to A&M Records, released their debut album Live at The Marquee and headlined The Hammersmith Odeon supported by Jools Holland.  The early 80’s saw them gracing TV screens nationwide on iconic shows such as The Old Grey Whistle Test and The Southbank Show even appearing on the very first episode of the ground-breaking comedy sitcom The Young Ones.

Over subsequent years and multiple releases the band supported the likes of Eric Clapton at Royal Albert Hall, Brian May, Chuck Berry, Bruce Foxton and Ray Davies and were signed by Sting and later Zed Records, featured on the soundtrack of the blockbuster movie Twelve Monkeys (which saw Bruce Willis perform with them on stage at the film launch) written albums with Nik Kershaw and played live with guests Glen Tilbrook and Alexis Korner.

Original members Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham, today announce a Nine Below Zero acoustic tour and as DenMark release a 29 track, Double LP of acoustic recordings.

The idea of DenMark was to re-record & remix all the acoustic tracks that had been made on ZED RECORDS since 2000 and with a host of brand new tracks, to make the DEFINITIVE NINE BELOW ZERO ACOUSTIC COLLECTION.

Dennis and Mark have been performing as a Duo since their debut duo album released in 2015, inspired by some of their favourite Blues Artist’s;  Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Hank Williams & Sonny Boy Williamson.

Mark, over the years, as well as being a founder member of Nine Below Zero has become the number one session Harmonica player in the UK. In addition to joining The Rory Gallagher band and touring the world in the mid eighties he has recently worked with Jude Law on a stage play, teaching Jude the technique of playing  the Harmonica and has played with a list of artists from George Michael to Nigel Kennedy.

Dennis has been a member of Nine Below Zero from the beginning, producing over 20 albums and playing guitar on Stage with Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, The Who, The Kinks, Allman Brothers, Brian May and many more of his guitar heroes.

DenMark is the culmination of the 40 plus years of experience that the Duo have shared together and separately. The tour will be a series of intimate shows, by two musicians who are masters of their class.
