The Larry Miller Band to perform at the Cheese & Grain

A re-arranged date, and back by popular demand, The Larry Miller Band (plus support from Venezuelan Pig Rustlers) will be at the Cheese & Grain on Saturday 8th August.

“Wow, he can play!” It’s a standard reaction to a chance encounter with British blues man Larry Miller, and is typically followed by another thought: Why isn’t he a superstar?” Maybe that’s the ‘Unfinished Business’ Miller is referring to.

A big live draw for many years, Miller is now starting to write albums that bottle the white heat of his shows, and you sense this latest effort is his best shot at the A-list.

Back in 2008, you could be nothing but impressed with ‘Outlaw Blues, but ‘Unfinished Business’ is even better: a taut, fiery, ambitious record. With stinging riffs dropping like mortar fire, there’s a temptation to categorise Miller as a ‘guitar hero’ but that’s a disservice to his excellent original writing and battle-scarred voice box. “Business is good.”

Classic Rock Magazine 2012 – “Holding his captive audience in a packed out venue hypnotising them into a trance with his guitar skills. A true master at work who many have said fits a void left by the great late Rory Gallagher. Much respected within the music industry by fellow artists who have nothing but good words to say about him and his guitar playing ability.”

Blues Matters 2011 – “As the natural successor to Rory Gallagher and Alvin Lee, Miller with the right backing looks set to commute his way to fortune with ease.”

Kerrang – “A Blues Rock Powerhouse.”
