Noel first came to prominence in the mid 80’s with the seminal Jazz/funk band Morrisey/Mullen while also providing vocals on Mike Rutherford’s highly acclaimed album “Smallcreep’s Day”. Forming his own band “Contact” in the early 80’s (subsequently renamed “McCalla” 10 years later), he released the brilliant album “Push and Pull”, followed by the equally great “Hot from the Smoke”. From the early 90’s, for more than 19 years, Noel’s searing, soulful vocals were featured with the iconic Manfred Mann’s “Earth Band”, but more recently Noel has moved away from his globe trotting exploits with Manfred to form several new bands of his own (as well as now working regularly with our very own 606 Club Gospel Group)! Tonight Noel will be playing with his 4-piece band featuring Tim Cansfield-guitar, Henry Thomas-bass and Nic France-drums. The music is a mix of really great “groove” based originals and some classic groove standards performed in his own, fiery, high energy way. So, if you appreciate creative songwriting coupled with a charismatic vocal delivery, be sure to attend what promises to be a “Groove” extravaganza.
