107th Meeting Artist
The Voodoo Gurus Band
The 107th Art Discussion Group Meeting will be held on Wednesday 12th December 2012 at 19.30hrs at MISCO OFFICE (first floor) in Fino Showrooms in Notabile Road, Mriehel. For this meeting the Society is inviting the Voodoo Gurus Band formed early this year that already has a strong following.
The band is composed of three English and two Maltese players: Sarah Hague: vocals; Ian Cox: saxophone and harmonica, Patrick Debrincat: guitar; Loretto Scicluna: bass and Martin South: percussion. The Band will entertain the audience for an hour after a very short introduction by the chairman of ADG.
The band plays a mixture of Blues, Rock and Roll and Rockabilly inspired by such artists as: Imelda May, Carl Perkin, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Ruth Brown, Muddy Waters and Leadbelly to name a few! The band members have a wealth of experience.
Sarah, previously an actress has appeared in the West End and on numerous national tours, performing for and with artists such as Ray Davies from ‘The Kinks’.
Ian ran his own Blues Band in the South of England and is owner of ‘Dog Rock’ promotions. He has played with many popular artists such as Ramon Goose and Alison Moyet.
Patrick has a passion for the guitar, buying his first at the age of 14. He moved to Australia at 17 and bought a Fender Stratocaster with his first wage packet! He has been playing in bands ever since.
Loretto has played in bands in Australia and Gozo. He is a well-known character and can often be seen in church bands before dashing off to a Voodoo Gurus gig! Martin has been heavily involved in the Manchester music scene since the 90's, and he played in the popular drum and bass group 'Azkim' and internationally renowned blues outfit 'The Swamp Knobs'.
The band has performed at numerous venues in Malta and Gozo, both private and public, including festivals such as Sannat, Gharb, Xagħra and Qala where they had a live web feed to Australia. They are actually working on writing their own material.
ADG invites its members, their friends and the public to this cultural and artistic event that will be immediately followed by a party as part of the Christmas festivities.
The occasion would surely interest those with a love for jazz bands.
