|DERRIN NAUENDORF & DAVID DOWNING|
THU 16 JAN 2003
We are very pleased to be able to bring one of the most exciting new acts on the music scene. Derrin has already mesmerised audiences at far larger venues than ours with his brilliant guitar playing, whilst David's rootsy percussion work is primative yet powerful.
Derrin & Dave arrived from Australia about 2 years ago, with little money, no gigs but a burning ambition to make it big in the UK. The combination of the will to succeed and remarkable talent has enabled this dream to come true, the boys haven't looked back!
Listen to what the big venues and reviewers say!
"Its very rare to find someone with the X-factor. Derrin Nauendorf is special, outstanding and has the X-factor" (Darren Nockles ~ The Musician, Leicester ~ Leicester's top acoustic music venue)
"Quality stuff by the swagful that stands up against the likes of David Gray and Starsailor. A stunning revelation" (Dennis Mountfort - Dove Valley Blues Club, Staffs)
"Given 5 stars as a maximum, how would I rate Derrin's potential? At least 50 stars" (Alex Vogt ~ Bieleseld Festival, Germany).
"Triple-A-rated. Australian, Acoustic, Amazing" (Peter Johnson ~ The Guardian).
Following on from their original CD, Derrin & David recorded the peerless 'Live At The Broadwalk', Sheffield's top blues / acoustic venue in Jan 2002. Later in the year they impressed at the Colne Blues Festival before making their first appearance in Lincolnshire at the Spalding Blues Club to a enraptured capacity crowd, an audience who know what they like and who have a chance to see many of the top bands on the blues circuit were totally won over by this amazing duo that left them buzzing!
We do hope our audience will support our efforts to bring this top act back to the county, and all those who couldn't get a ticket for the Spalding gig come along tonight!
