Never the Bride
Sunday 15th March 2020 - 8:30 pm
Music Charge: £12.00
We are sorry to announce that the gig this evening has been cancelled at the request of the artists.
We received word from them this morning that two of the band travelled to Spain last week for work and given the latest news from that country are now self isolating.
We are obviously disappointed that the gig is not going ahead but completely appreciate their desire to keep everyone around them safe. This is an action that we completely support and endorse, even though it means we will not now be open for trading this evening.
The band are booked to appear here again later in the summer and we look forward to welcoming them back then.
The Club is open for business as usual tomorrow (Monday), but as always we will be taking numerous precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible and keeping a close eye on the situation as it develops.
Thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you at the Club soon.
With their distinctive moniker blues-rock band “Never the Bride” are led by Bristol-born singer Nikki Lamborn and Glaswegian Catherine ‘Been’ Feeney on vocals, keyboards and guitar. Founded 25 years ago, they have played venues ranging from The Royal Albert Hall with Elton John, Wembley Arena supporting The Who, Glastonbury Festival with Dame Shirley Bassey, Birmingham NEC duetting with Bryan Adams to more intimate Clubs including Ronnie Scott’s and Pizza Express. In addition, after touring UK & Australia with The British Rock Symphony alongside Roger Daltrey and Paul Rogers, no less an authority than Daltrey himself said “Nikki Lamborn has the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin”. However their undeniable rock credentials notwithstanding, Dame Shirley Bassey hired Nikki and Catherine to produce her album “Get the Party Started” on their own Lock, Stock and Barrel label, which reached number #6 in the UK charts. Nikki is also an acclaimed vocal coach, described as “the best I have ever known” by Beverley Knight and appearing in that capacity on BBC’s “Just The Two Of Us” and Channel 4’s “Faking It” among other TV credits. The band also includes Maxime Obadia (James Morrison)-guitar, David Levy (Rory Gallagher, Joan Armatrading)-bass and Fergus Gerrand (Sting, Mike Oldfield)-drums. This is world class, road-tested blues-rock of the highest calibre.
“Never The Bride are an absolutely brilliant band, one of the best live bands in Britain.” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
