AdvertisementUnique and timeless – the legend that is Steve Gibbons has withstood the fads and fashions of the music business for over four decades.
Analyse his music and superb self-penned songs and you’ll find the influences of blues, country, even psychedelia.
Born in Birmingham, Steve first came to prominence as the leader of The Uglys, an uncompromising outfit at the forefront of the City’s burgeoning 1960s music scene. By the early 1970s
he had formed the five-piece Steve Gibbons Band which enjoyed success in the singles charts and has been perennially popular on the live circuit ever since.
With a huge international following, Steve’s long career has encompassed 17 albums. Along the way he has worked and toured with many bands including The Who, Little Feat, Lynyrd Skynyrd and E.L.O. In 1981, SGB responded to an invitation from the German Democratic Republic and became the first western rock band to tour the major cities of the former East Germany.
Steve is an inspired songwriter and many of his songs feature colourful characters. The most notable cover of a Steve Gibbons song is the title track of Roger Daltrey’s album ‘One Of The Boys’.
Now here we are in 2023, bringing his band to The Actress and Bishop, what a show this will be.
Steve will be supported by local Blues legend Ritchie Dave Poter!
