About the Broken Chair Country & Blues Club
For this first show we’ve been lucky enough to secure:
Miller Anderson – veteran of Woodstock, ex Keef Hartley, Donavon, Savoy Brown, Dog Soldier, The Dukes, T Rex, Deep Purple and many more. Miller has managed to fit us in to a busy autumn schedule of tours in Germany.
The Professor David Minns – former owner of Brighton’s legendary Borderline Records’ and called The Prof because of his encyclopedic knowledge of Country Music.
Dr Bob Brookes – The Rock ‘n’ Roll Doctor, Frontman and Harmonica player for The Desperate Dan Band. Played with some of the great country and blues legends such as Sherman Robertson, Larry Garner, Chris Farlowe.
Why the name?
There was an kernel of an idea for a once a month specialist club. A club for people who were into their Country and Blues and wanted to share that passion for quality music and artists. It was during Bob’s time as the owner of a pub in Worthing, when he opened the door to the newly inherited function room that he discovered a stage with a solitary broken dining chair in the middle … The Broken Chair Country and Blues Club name was born. Luckily, the chairs at the Village Hall are all superb, but the name and premise of the club lives on today.
British blues aficionados recognise and adore Miller Anderson’s work. A look at his discography makes you realise he's a musicians’ musician.
