Renowned blues band offer a different appeal
Nine Below Zero will bring a fresh vibe to the club’s music events next month as Kingsmeadow Live aims to host more bands that appeal to a wider audience.
Blues band Nine Below Zero shot to fame in the early 1980s with talented live performances that earned respect within the music world. The four-piece band gained further kudos by supporting The Kinks and The Who on tour, but their appeal has not waned and they have continued to entertain audiences during their 35-year existence.
In 2007, legendary blues guitarist Gary Moore joined them on stage to promote their DVD called Bring It On Home and a year later they opened for Chuck Berry at The 100 Club.
Their appearance promises to make it a night to remember at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, 28 September, as part of Kingsmeadow Live’s “Rocking Blues and R & B Night”.
There is always a risk in changing direction from the tried and tested road, but I think it’s time we appealed to a wider audience. If it goes well then we will aim to book more bands of a similar nature in the future.” The sound is always great at the club and there is a good atmosphere to match. Jim Piddington, Commercial Executive at the club, said: “This is a bit of a departure from our normal ska/mod related gigs. We hope that this change in direction is welcomed and people come along and see how good a venue we have here.
