The Dave Thomas Band
The Dave Thomas Band delivers the kind of hard-driving Chicago-style blues that was such a big influence on bands like the Rolling Stones, the Pretty Things, the Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and Led Zeppelin.
Dave Thomas & The Fine City Blues Band
The Fine City Blues Band features some of the very best blues musicians in Norwich and Norfolk. They are the house band at the Fine City Blues Club – a club with a growing national and international reputation.
Dave Thomas & The Journeymen
The Journeymen deliver tightly-knit traditional blues with a mix of acoustic and electric instruments.
Dave Thomas & The Syndicators
The Syndicators are a hard-driving electric blues rock band: blues in the raw!
Shortstuff is a blues duo, first active in the mid-70s. Landing themselves a residency at the legendary Half Moon in Putney proved a turning point. Shortstuff toured the folk clubs of the UK and appeared at the Cambridge Folk Festival. Dave Thomas and Hugh Gregory are back together again touring Europe and the UK delivering their tightly-knit set of blues and Americana blending guitar and vocals seamlessly.
Blonde on Blonde
Dave joined Blonde On Blonde as their new lead singer in 1969 taking over from Ralph Denyer who had left the band after recording their first album, ‘Contrasts’, to form Aquila. On the second and third albums, ‘Rebirth’ and ‘Reflections on a Life’, Dave began to develop his song-writing skills. Blonde On Blonde was a seminal progressive rock band during the late sixties and early seventies playing major festivals including the Isle of Wight festivals. They shared the bill with many highly successful bands, like Jefferson Airplane, Deep Purple, Barclay James Harvest, Steve Miller Band and Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum. They were once supported by Fleetwood Mac! The band’s albums have been on worldwide release ever since. The original vinyl pressings are now highly sought after collectors items. The most recent remastered albums can be found on the Esoteric label.
Greenslade & Thomas
Dave Greenslade, the master keyboard player with the band Greenslade and with Jon Hiseman’s Colosseum, heard Dave Thomas sing with his band at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay. He was impressed enough by Dave’s voice to suggest they work together on a joint album project. That project began several years ago but, because of their respective commitments and touring schedules, it has taken until now to come to fruition. Theirs is a unique and fruitful creative partnership. The album is due for release in October 2019.
