About Free Jazz Fridays: Steve Ajao's Blues Giants
Open to All: 10am Friday 21 July
Now in its fifth decade, the Blues Giants trio play authentic classic American Blues with music by legends such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Parker, Johnny Guitar Watson and more, as well as some soul and rock 'n' roll classics.
Steeped in the Blues and Jazz all his life, Birmingham guitarist Steve Ajao and his Blues Giants (Mike Hatton – Bass, and latest recruit, (1993!) former Au Pairs drummer Pete ‘Washboard’ Hammond) have been thrilling audiences for 40 years and Steve is regarded by many as one of the hottest Blues guitarists in the UK, as well as being in possession of the kind of mountainous voice that was made for the Blues. There is always a segment in the set where ‘Washboard Pete’ wanders off into the crowd, including behind the bar, where he taps the living daylights out of any tappable inanimate object, close by, creating huge mirth and laughter. A must see act.
