BURTON & THE BLUES
Burton & The Blues is a 5-piece soul/blues band featuring the considerable vocal talents of front man, Graham Burton, who has been a regular performer on the Cape Town jazz scene for some years. He is equally at home in the soul and blues genres and has recently launched his own blues band, which focuses on the more soulful blues material, rather than the blues-rock catalogue favoured by many blues bands. But make no mistake ... this band can rock with the best of them.
Graham’s backing band comprises keyboards, guitar, bass and drums and, between them, the musicians have many years’ experience gigging around Cape Town.
The repertoire includes several soul/blues standards, such as Little Red Rooster, Texas Flood, Boom Boom, Dimples, Double Trouble, Need Your Love So Bad, Bring It On Home To Me, I Would Rather Go Blind, Stand By Me and Black Magic Woman, as well as many lesser known but equally good numbers, that are well suited to Graham's vocal style.
The range of material covered allows the band to play pure blues sets, upbeat party sets, laid back jazzier sets, or a combination.
Seating about 100 +30 or more standing, The Bombshelter is situated in The old Sunrise Toffee factory complex near the heart of Pinelands Cape Town.
