Voodoo Room will cast its spell over rock fans

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Lynn McKenna

Pay­ing homage to two of the most com­mand­ing names in rock his­tory, “Jimi Hen­drix” and “Cream”, Voodoo Room take to the stage at Motherwell Theatre to de­liver a mighty, retro, rock­ing ma­chine.

Voodoo Room de­liver a ful­lon show that fea­tures all of your favourite Hen­drix and Cream tunes, per­formed with an en­ergy and vir­tu­os­ity that tran­scends trib­ute band sta­tus.

This is defini­tively NOT a wig-wear­ing, dress-up, pan­tomime-style trib­ute band – rather, it is sim­ply great mu­sic per­formed by great mu­si­cians, Peter Orr, John Tonks and Andy Tol­man.

Vir­tu­oso gui­tarist Orr’s jaw drop­ping so­los and epic vo­cal stylings, have wowed all those lucky enough to ex­pe­ri­ence this new life within the late-six­ties clas­sics around the UK and Europe for 30 years.

Tol­man has played live bass for the likes of Ben E King and Ro­driguez, whilst also ful­fill­ing many a mu­sic en­thu­si­ast’s dream by par­tic­i­pat­ing in a record­ing ses­sion with leg­endary Bea­tles pro­ducer, Ge­orge Martin, who passed away re­cently.

Drum­mer Tonks is a lead­ing ses­sion mu­si­cian with im­pres­sive tour­ing and record­ing cred­its, in­clud­ing di­verse acts, such as Du­ran Du­ran, The Streets and Steve Win­wood.

They per­form an in­cred­i­ble high en­ergy show, de­liv­ered in the true spirit of these leg­endary su­per­stars.

Their in­di­vid­ual cred­its in­clude: Steve Win­wood, Du­ran Du­ran, Ben E. King, Fish, Thunder, Thea Gil­more and Lulu.

With stand­ing ova­tions the norm, Voodoo Room have re­ceived praise from the likes of Neneh Cherry and Blues in the South Mag­a­zine.

Word on the street is that the show is not be missed. Don’t miss the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the thrill of this mu­si­cal ride, cov­er­ing all your favourites, such as “Sun­shine of your love”, “Voodoo Child”, “Pur­ple Haze” “Cross­roads” and “I Feel Free.”

Cream were a 1960s Bri­tish rock su­per­group power trio con­sist­ing of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drum­mer Ginger Baker, and gui­tarist/singer Eric Clap­ton.

The band made a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on the pop­u­lar mu­sic of the time along with Jimi Hen­drix.

Voodoo Room will per­form live at Motherwell Theatre on Fri­day 20 May 2016 at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets are £12. To book tick­ets for Voodoo Room, call 01698
