Details

Celebrating his 75th birthday this year, Georgie Fame is looking back on a career that has spanned five decades. In that time he has recorded 14 hit singles such as Yeh Yeh (which knocked The Beatles off the number one spot) and Getaway. He continues to tour his unique blend of jazz/rhythm and blues throughout Europe, and is joined for this show by one of the UK’s busiest composers and arrangers, Guy Barker, along with the sensational Guy Barker Big Band.

Georgie Fame’s distinctive voice and hammond organ playing were part of the jazz & blues explosion in the 1960’s. He has worked with musicians such as Gene Vincent, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Count Basie, Stevie Wonder, Bill Wyman, David Gilmour and Van Morrison. He has produced more than 20 acclaimed albums and picked up numerous awards.

His first break came as a young piano player in Gene Vincent’s band supporting Eddie Cochran in 1960. Fame then formed the legendary Blue Flames and held a lengthy residency at the Flamingo All Nighter club in the heart of London’s Soho from 1962. A string of hits followed including Yeh Yeh, Getaway and The ballad of Bonnie & Clyde. With his unwavering style still present in his 70s, Georgie is equally at home in the company of jazz groups and big bands, orchestras, rock groups and his own band, The Blue Flames.
