Of the original lineup the legendary Chaz Jankel (Keys, Guitar), Norman Watt-Roy (Bass) , Mick Gallagher (Keys), John Turnbull (guitar) will all be present and correct alongside Gilad Atzmon (Sax), John Roberts (drums) and longstanding vocalist Derek “The Draw” Hussey.
This show will be both a Christmas celebration and an early Birthday party as the band celebrate 40 years since their formation in the coming months.
You know it makes sense!
