The Heroes will be showcasing songs from their highly acclaimed album, A Brief Period Of Rejoicing as well as playing some exciting old favourites, including numbers from Ray Charles, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry, all influenced by the jazz and blues of New Orleans where band leaders Ben and Emile Martyn grew up.
Influenced by local legends such as George Lewis, John Handy and Harold Dejan of the world-famous Olympia Brass Band, returning to Europe they formed their own band playing music that drew on the musical energy of the American Deep South but with a twist, writing original compositions in a funky New Orleans manner but playing in a more contemporary London style.
The Martyn brother’s musical history includes playing with the likes of Dr John, James Cotton, (legendary harmonica player with Muddy Water’s Band), KT Tunstall and Ronnie Wood. With Ben Martyn on vocals & bass and Emile Martyn on drums and backing vocals the A-List line-up is completed by top keyboard player Liam Grundy who toured extensively with the great Scotty Moore, Elvis’ guitarist, Julian Webster Greaves (Shakin’ Stevens & Gilbert O’Sullivan bands) on saxophone, harmonica & vocals and New Yorker Jerome Harper on trombone.
