Albert Lee is by common consent one of the world’s finest guitar players and has worked with some of the world’s top artists, from Emmylou Harris to the Everly Brothers, and Dolly Parton to Eric Clapton.
Hogan’s Heroes were formed by their namesake Gerry Hogan more than 20 years ago, specifically to back Albert. Their first gig took place in 1987 at Gerry’s annual festival for pedal-steel guitar and since then they have played together on a regular basis, becoming one of the tightest units in music.
On this tour Hogan’s Heroes will thrill audiences , each member of the band with an absolutely top pedigree: Gerry Hogan himself on Pedal Steel Guitar / Dobro / Guitar. Gerry has worked both as a studio and gigging musician. Credits include: Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith The Everly Brothers, Dave Edmunds, Wet Wet Wet, Pulp, The Proclaimers, Jimmy Nail, Mott the Hoople and Matchbox.
Peter Baron (Drums / Vocals) Peter too has gigged and worked extensively in studios. Credits include: Elkie Brooks, Lulu, Leo Sayer, Huey Lewis, Dave Edmunds, Geno Washington, The Three Degrees, Elaine Page, Sam Brown, The Bay City Rollers and Renaissance.
Doña Oxford (Keyboards / Vocals) Doña is known as the “Goddess of Soul” and “Queen of Boogie Woogie”. Credits include: Van Morrison, Levon Helm, Buddy Guy, Gary US Bonds, Leland Sklar, Son Seals, Hubert Sumlin, Bob Weir and Popa Chubby.
Chris Palmer (Bass Guitar / Vocals) Chris has a background in record production and is also a writer and arranger. He owned and ran both Groove Productions and music software company Musicalc. Credits include: Morrissey-Mullen, Surface Noise, Surfsuckers, Cayenne and Linda Taylor.
The ticket price of £25 would be a bargain just to witness Albert Lee’s extraordinarily fine playing, but the room full of the world’s top players in Hogan’s Heroes makes the price a real bargain!
Albert Lee & Hogan’s Heroes are at The Stables on Sunday June 7th.
