Davy Knowles Band for Garden Party Announced
Born on the Isle of Man, 22 year old British phenomenon Davy Knowles is all set to headline The Garden Party on July 2nd, 2011. Simon has been asked to put together a band and is really looking forward to playing with him on the night.
Apart from his own hectic gigging schedule, Davy has recently been on tour with the Rhythm Devils as well as playing alongside guitar legends Joe Satriani and Sonny Landreth at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam.
He’s taken on the American blues-rock fraternity at their own game and scored a home run, climbing ever-nearer to the top of Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart, reaching #2, kept off only by the soundtrack to Cadillac Records and mixing in the exalted company of Buddy Guy to Joe Bonamassa.
Now residing in Chicago, Davy is looking forward to playing for his home crowd and has chosen Simon and his band, to work as his backing musicians.
Davy said: When I was asked to play back home on the Island I knew I had to put on a very special show and needed to put together a very special band to play it. Simon and The Very Very Bad Men were the first musicians who came to mind for this and am thrilled they have agreed. This will be a show to remember!
Simon commented: Steve, Kev and I are really looking forward to working with Davy, giving him a solid platform to do what he does best - rock the house! He is an inspiration to young musicians everywhere, going to prove that real talent and hard work really do pay off - I love the guy.
