Joe Brown Solo UK Tour

October 21 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Joe brown iow tour

oe Brown MBE is unique, a genuine one off. With a history that spans music hall, skiffle, rock ‘n’ roll, theatre, films, TV, radio and even circus (his Grandfather performed with Buffalo Bill), there aren’t many that can claim such an entertaining background.    He is one the very few to have successfully traversed the years and the genres and still be contemporary.

A real survivor and a mega musical talent, the musician’s musician Joe Brown has seen it all. And, as his fans can testify, his tales of life on the road are, quite simply, hilarious. He has stories and jokes – and he knows how to tell ‘em.

So now for a real treat and, for the first time ever………….  Just  Joe, the man by himself, uncut, solo, uncensored, an audience with. Joe has such a raft of great stories to tell that he decided the time had come to share them so this Autumn he takes to the road to do exactly that.

This will be the very first time that Joe has gone out with a One Man Show and it’s long overdue. As Joe himself said “I’ve been thinking about it for a while but then I decided to go for it – before I start to forget!”

Aided and abetted by his old friend Henry Gross, Joe will share anecdotes and insights, interact with audiences, play many a song and do what he does better than almost anyone else – entertain with a capital E.

US born Henry Gross is no stranger to the stage either. A superlative guitarist, he founded the chart-topping group Shah Na Nah and was the youngest musician to play Woodstock. Subsequently he built a significant solo career and regularly performs ‘Shannon’, his self-penned No 1 world-wide hit.

JUST JOE  will see Joe talk about his early days, growing up in a pub in London’s East End, discovering skiffle, becoming a rock ‘n’ roll pioneer and touring with the likes of Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and Gene Vincent before headlining shows with The Beatles as opening act.  The heady days of rock ‘n’ roll will be laid bare and the evening promises to be an intimate glimpse into the hectic world of one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved performers.

Joe commands a stage like no other. His musical skills are legend, his repartee renowned. Indeed, Joe Brown – up close and personal -what could be more entertaining and what could be more of a treat!
