Dave Lewis’ 1UP

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 18 th June 2017

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Tonight catch this sensational band as they play songs from their recent release ‘Under the Same Sun’. Their original songs are the evolution of deep musical experience forged through years of playing as a band - American saxophonist Dave Lewis's raw and lyrical sound is perfectly matched by the soulful intensity and searing blues vocals of Lizzie Deane. The band lays down the deepest grooves and affords space for virtuosic improvisation and breathtaking interplay. With their original material and evocative lyrics 1UP bring their own contemporary edge to the groove. Above all it's a band of outstanding musicians who play as one.

“It’s really, really good.”

Paul Jones BBC Radio 2

1UP bring their collective influences and distinct individuality to create a true band spirit. Already tracks from ‘Under the Same Sun’ have had great response from airplay on BBC Radio 2. These guys pick up the standard from where the Crusaders, Rufus and the Meters left off.

Amongst others 1UP musicians have performed, recorded and toured with: John Martyn, The Blockheads, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Pee Wee Ellis & Fred Wesley, Boy George, Albert Lee, Paloma Faith, Van Morrison, George Coleman, Gil Scott Heron, Ronnie Laws, Jazz Jamaica, Dj Vadim, George Benson, Roy Ayers, Tom Jones, Tina Turner & David Bowie.
