KICKING OFF 2018 WITH A BANG

THE POKEY PROUDLY PRESENTS A LEGENDARY NAME FROM THE GREAT DAYS OF BRITISH BLUES ROCK

FRIDAY 26th JANUARY

 

First up in 2018, we have Ken Pustelnik’s Groundhogs, who bring that 70s heavy blues sound to the Pokey. Formed in 1963 and spanning several incarnations, Groundhogs were around right at the peak of British blues rock dominance, even so far as supporting The Rolling Stones by request in 1971. Their place in British Blues history was confirmed when the band backed and toured with John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Champion Jack Dupree. Still driven by the 'Hogs original drummer from the classic days, with huge riffs, assured solos and powerful vocals, Groundhogs will bring a hurricane of classic blues rock to the Pokey this January

 

2018 marks the 55th year since the Groundhogs formation, and 50 years since the release of their first album 'Scratching The Surface' which featured the brilliant harmonica of one of the Original Pokey Hole's favourite artists, the late, great Steve Rye
