Rock under the Sun

My old mate Stef from the UK is over in Spain again, and that means – fun gigs!  So Stef, Mario and I threw a couple of sets of rock together and began by playing Mario’s own Bar Zambra on friday night, followed by El patio beach bar on Mojacar Playa on the Saturday early evning. We had a blast, playing the set by the seat of our pants with virtually no reheasals, and performing songs such as Radar Love, La Grange, One last Soul etc. but by far the most poignant for me was playing the late great Tommy Bolin’s ‘Teaser’. I’d had a message from his brother a couple of days back after I’d tweeted we’d be doing the song, telling me to say it was a ‘special request from his brother Johnny from Sioux city, and to rock it!’ That we did, and it was an honour and a privilege to do so.

We have one more show coming up in the nearby mountain village of Bedar on Wednesday, and I’ll be posting pics etc from both that and the El Patio show later!

The Kev Moore Band live @ Bar Zambra, Turre

"In four lads, and I'll meet you at the end...."

There’s no such thing as the Kev Moore Band really, but that’s who Me, Mario and Stef were last Friday night at Zambra in Turre, down here in Almeria province, Spain. Stef had come over with his family, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a gig, so, one quick rehearsal, and we took the stage for 2 hours worth of rock classics, ranging from Led Zep, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Black Country Communion, Free, Bad Company, Thin Lizzy, Stevie Wonder…you name it, we gave it a go!

It was brilliant fun, and as I often mention on here, just great for me, as I don’t play all that often locally. Here’s a few examples from the night, but please bear in mind, it was recorded with a little camera and the sound quality is very Lo-Fi!!

 

 

 

We had such a good reception in fact, that who knows? The Kev Moore Band may ride again, down in the beach bars in the summer!

Fiesta time in Turre 2011

It’s always exciting when October rolls around down here in my village of Turre, because that means it’s Fiesta time!  The previous week, I’d performed with an old friend for a benefit concert in neighbouring Mojacar, but more of that in a later post.

For our Fiesta, I’d been asked by Neil, who runs The Pasty Shack on the Main street, to do a solo gig there on Saturday night, which I agreed to. It gave me a chance to perform the greater part of my Blue Odyssey album,  several other original compositions, and songs from friends and collaborators.  It was a great night, and I had fun juggling between two guitars and a bass!

For the Sunday night, I was  to link up with my mate Mario from Los Mezcaleros, to perform a short guest set at his bar, Zambra.  the video here shows us performing the old classic ‘Smoke on the water’.

I love to get up and play locally on occasion, just to keep my hand in, and I guess that might be the last time for a while as BC Sweet and Christie start to get busy in October and November.

Keep checking back, as I plan to put photos from this show and the Mojacar charity show up on the site.

Turre Fiesta!

Music and Kebabs...what else do you need?

It’s that time of year again down our way folks – our annual Fiesta kicks off on Friday with a weekend of fun and frivolity (which are probably the same thing.) Following a recent show up in the hills in Lucainena with Mario and Francis (Guitar & Drums) we’ve decided to do a show on Friday night at Bar Zambra on Turre’s main street, when we will showcase a few songs from my forthcoming CD ‘Blue Odyssey’ along with some classic rock from Hendrix, Bad Co, SRV, ZZ Top etc.

With Mario and Francis in Lucainena

It’s great to have the chance to play a few of these songs locally, even before the album’s out.  Some time ago, I wrote & recorded a song as a homage to Turre, called ‘The Turre stomp’ and for everyone who orders the CD in advance, they’ll receive a FREE download of the track. I’ll be posting a note on here when MIKISMART, our online shop has it for sale. You can check the shop out now though, for some of my previous releases, commemorative posters, and artwork too, not to mention my son’s band – Jilambis – new EP!

Hopefully I’ll have some pics from the show after the weekend.

Bar Zambra Jam Night

Blues and Greens.....

Miki and I have been going a little ‘cold turkey’ on our return home, missing the nightly buzz of live music that we had become so accustomed to in the States, so you can imagine our delight when we saw a flyer advertising my friend Mario’s bar beginning a regular programme of music in the coming months.  I’ve joined Mario’s band Los Mezcaleros a few times on shows in the region, and it’s always fun.  Saturday was advertised as a jam night so we headed down, me with my bass and Miki with a determination to eat one of the newly-promoted kebabs…

Mario and I looking suitably engrossed.....

It turned out to be a great night, and oddly reminiscent of our time in America, jamming along with half a dozen guest musicians, we ran through songs evocative of our trip: Pride & Joy, Cold shot (Stevie Ray Vaughn) Crossroads (Robert Johnson) Fulsome Prison Blues (Johnny Cash) and T-Bone Walker’s Stormy Monday. I was also invited to take part in an Acoustic jam held every second Thursday down the road in El Pinar, so that might be fun. Not sure if they do kebabs, though….

"Let's all agree on the next chord...."

It’s great to know we have these possibilities just down the road in our ‘local’ – and you can be sure it won’t be the last time we’ll be down there!
