Maidstone Fringe Festival 2019

Nine Below Zero

PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone)

This band have earned themselves the reputation of being one of the best Blues bands around today and this gig will not disappoint.  Back in the late 70s and early 80s, when the mod revival was at its height, Nine Below Zero offered an R&B antidote to the punk-pop of the mainstream.  Expect a fearsome, supercharged set from start to finish.

Standing show, for limited seating available on the balcony, please contact the Box Office 0207 439 4962.

Since their formation in 1977 NINE BELOW ZERO have developed a reputation as one of the best blues bands in the country. Their high energy live act was already well established by the time they signed to A&M RECORDS in 1980 and was forever captured on their classic live album 1980’s LIVE AT THE MARQUEE. Legendary producer GLYN JOHNS subsequently worked with the band on 1981’s DON’T POINT YOUR FINGER and they became a familiar sight on seminal TV shows like THE OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST, THE SOUTH BANK SHOW and memorably performed ‘’11+11’’ on the very first episode of anarchic comedy hit THE YOUNG ONES. High profile tours with THE WHO and The KINKS followed and although their musicianship was reaching new heights 1982’s THIRD DEGREE was the last album released by the classic line-up.

During this hiatus Dennis formed the soul/pop outfit THE TRUTH producing two Top 20 singles in the UK and a Top 5 R&B hit in the US whilst Mark Feltham went on to become one of the most sought after harmonica players in the session world.

2018 brought the LIVE AT THE MARQUEE UK TOUR in which the band gave the songs off that iconic album the big band treatment as well as an Autumn tour in support of FROM THE JAM. At present writing is well underway on a new, self-penned album to be released in time for the band’s 40th anniversary celebrations in 2019.
