Amazing Stories of Blues and Soul aims to reconnect audiences with the energy, excitement and raw emotion generated by the pioneering R&B and soul acts of the 40s, 50s and 60s. Crafted by long-running cult R&B band Ken Wood and the Mixers, the show uses words, music and a dynamic stage show to tell the story of soul. In this fast-paced musical tour the eight-piece band recreates the pounding R&B of the 1940s through to the smouldering sounds of Stax records. The band punctuates the show with stories of their musical heroes and recreates the original spirit of the legendary singers and foot-stomping soul classics that sound-tracked a generation. Anecdotes, humour and the songs of Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, James Brown, Smokey Robinson and many more are all brought together through performances crackling with energy. As performed at Edinbugh and Brighton Fringe Fesitivals and Stroud Theatre Festival.
