Nine Below Zero ‘Are We There Yet?’
Dennis Greaves and award winning blues harmonica player Mark Feltham.
40 years since Nine Below Zero first offered a rhythm & blues alternative to the punk-pop of the mainstream, the south Londoners announce their ‘Are We There Yet?’ tour. With a reputation as “one of the best blues bands around today” for their scintillating live performances, this tour will not disappoint - expect a fearsome, supercharged set from start to finish. Formed in 1979 the band took their musical cues from the R&B greats of the 60s, with a harder-edged sound more akin to contemporaries Dr Feelgood with a strong dose of The Yardbirds. In a meteoric rise to prominence on the British blues scene, they signed to A&M Records in 1980 and released the seminal ‘Live At The Marquee album’. By the end of the year, they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out Hammersmith Odeon (now Apollo). High profile tours with The Who and The Kinks followed, as well as regular TV performances on The Old Grey Whistle Test, The South Bank Show and a guest appearance on The Young Ones.
