DAVE & DANNA DIXON BAND

Onstage: 7PM

Fronted by the outstanding singer / harmonica player Dana Dixon and acclaimed Blues and Slide guitarist Dave Dixon, the band play a mixture of authentic Texas & Chicago blues, tough R&B and superb original numbers. Since their formation and the launch of their critically acclaimed debut album “Boogie Woman”, the band have garnered fantastic reviews from the British and overseas press for both their recorded work and excellent live act.

Arguably one of the most exciting live acts in Britain today, the band have played at practically every major blues festival in Britain and Ireland, and perform in blues venues up and down the UK, Europe and USA including sell out shows for 3 years running at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2009 – 2011)

In the many reviews she has received, Dana has been likened to many of the blues greats – Koko Taylor, Big Mama Thornton, Maggie Bell and Janis Joplin – with much emphasis placed on her powerful vocals and harmonica skills. Dave Dixon, whose guitar playing “has to be seen to be believed”, is an official endorsee of Gibson guitars (USA), and Rotosound strings (UK).

Testimonials:

“Dana’s vocals rock! Guitarist Dave is smoking! We love this band!” – The Blues Foundation (USA)
