Arthur Lea's Bootleg Trio
Monday 28th March 2022 - 8:00 pm
Music Charge: £14.00
Best known here at the club as the keyboardist/singer with the ever popular Coalminers, Arthur Lea combines eclectic rhythm and blues with southern soul. Lewisham schooled, Royal Academy of Music trained, he has played everywhere from Ronnie Scott’s to the Olympic Stadium, working with everyone from Kate Tempest to Kylie Minogue. He performs solo, with his band Bootleg Brass, and many others: The Coalminers, Paragon, Tongue Fu, to name a few. He has recorded in studios from Nashville to Berlin, and produced several albums of original music. This trio is made ever more intriguing by the addition of tuba in place of bass! Filling those two slots in the trio will be Pat Levett-drums and Chris Barrett-tuba.
