Fresh from its big reopening and the revealing of a spectacular £3.5m refurbishment, the iconic Band on the Wall is well and truly back as one of Manchester’s most-loved cultural hubs.

Living up to that reputation, the venue is launching a brand new series of free live performances from some of the planet’s most exciting and eclectic musical talent. The diverse programme will feature global sounds from, and inspired by, the music of cultures from all around the world.

However, it’s actually one of Manchester’s true unsung heroes who will feature this Sat 9 Apr, as local blues legend Victor Brox takes to the venue’s new second stage.

A maverick of his craft, Victor’s genre-defying style has seen him work with an eye-watering list of names: Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Gillan of Deep Purple, just to name a few.

Both Hendrix and Tina Turner also paid him the ultimate compliment, labelling Brox as their ‘favourite white blues singer’, making the chance to see him for absolutely zilch too good an opportunity to pass up.

The show starts at 1pm, and we’d advise getting down early to grab yourself a spot. Find out more over on the Band on the Wall website.
