PREVIEW- Georgie Fame @ White Rock Theatre Hastings 27/3/2017

One of Britain finest jazzmen and a mod-favourite who has been able to top pop charts, Georgie Fame more than 50 years after his debut still hasn’t lost his thunder and performs at Hastings White Rock Theatre.

On Monday, March 27th, Hastings White Rock Theatre prepares to host a date of Georgie Fame’s tour. Grown up with a fond love for American blues and jazz, Georgie and his Blue Flames become one of the top acts in early ‘60s Soho clubs like Wardour Street’s Flamingo. Here Georgie was able to mix modern jazz with bluesy and RnB sounds which made him a mod scene favourite, as he deafened the nights of hip London teenagers.

With more than 20 albums and 14 chart hits, Georgie is mainly remembered for The Ballad of Bonny and Clyde the song that, in pure ’67 gangster fashion, crowned him as a British pop establishment. Other hits include the Hammond-filled Getaway, the jazzy RnB Yeh Yeh, the soulful Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag and Seventh Son, also interpreted by Mose Allison, one of Georgie’s greatest inspirations.

A coherent musician, Georgie always kept himself sharp-dressed and faithful to jazz and blues releasing several albums proving his love for the American tradition, as in 1989 tribute to Chet Baker.

Not only a brilliant pianist, Georgie collaborated with some music heavyweights as Bill Wyman, Gene Vincent, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and Alan Price, with whom he recorded 1971 Fame and Price, Price and fame Together.

You can catch Georgie Fame performing at Hastings White Rock Theatre on Monday, March 27th. Start 7.30pm. Tickets from £23.00 with reductions for groups and White Rock Friends.
