Gary Moore was one of the truly great guitar players, with an instinctive feel for the blues that made him a legend worldwide. More than five years after his passing, Gary’s great blues legacy is being carried on by the Gary Moore Band, now fronted by guitarist and singer Billy Merziotis.
This all-star lineup is playing songs from Gary’s blues period, including tracks from the Still Got The Blues, After Hours and Blues for Greeny albums, together with a few earlier classics: from Parisienne Walkways to Empty Rooms. Guitar and vocals are courtesy of Billy Merziotis. A life-long admirer of Gary, Billy brings more than simply virtuosity: his playing has a feel and sensitivity that lets you close your eyes and imagine you’re hearing Gary himself.
The Band features Graham Walker on drums, who was with Gary throughout the purple patch that gave us the albums and tours for Still Got The Blues, After Hours, Live Blues and Blues For Greeny. John Tampakakis on keyboards, and Alex Stavrakas on bass.
This is set to be an incredible night for both blues fans and our special guest: Gary’s beloved sister Patricia Stewart Moore.
