There’s some quality blues on the menu at The Flowerpot in Derby on Friday, February 28.

Danny Bryant’s Redeye Band make their latest visit to the King Street-based venue, fronted by one of the finest young blues guitarists who has gained recognition and respect from audiences and fellow performers alike.

Following many sold out club tours across Europe and numerous major festival appearances that have seen the power trio perform on the same bill as such names as Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy and Peter Green to mention a few; Danny and his band have steadily carved a huge and loyal fan base around the world.

In a career already littered with many highlights, December 2013 saw the release of the Danny Bryant signature guitar, Fret-King Corona DBR. Fret-King is one of the industry-leading guitar brands designed by master guitar builder and innovator, Trev Wilkinson.

So far the band has released nine internationally acclaimed CDs. Critically acclaimed by both the blues/rock and guitar media, it was the respect from the mainstream music-world that has helped Danny to attain his highest sales figures so far and make 2013’s Hurricane his best selling album.

Then, on Saturday, March 1, you can see tribute act Guns 2 Roses at The Flowerpot.

Guns 2 Roses have been playing together since 2002. Approved by various members of Guns N Roses, they even have the original G N R drummer Steven Adler playing with them from time to time.

They have played to thousands throughout the UK, Europe and USA and this year will be playing the Matthew Street Festival in Liverpool in front of 20.000 people.

Hailing from London, these guys have played the same London clubs and venues that GNR did in the 80s from the Marquee Club to the Mean Fiddler and Hard Rock Cafe in Hyde Park. They’ve also sold out the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool two nights in a row as well as many other venues and theatres that they have played nationwide.

Totally focused on not only cloning the sound of GNR better than the rest Guns 2 Roses are also mirror images to Axl and the boys, with stage performances down to the last detail.

Playing many songs from Appetite For Destruction, GNR Lies and Use Your Illusion I and II and even the Spaghetti Incident? Guns 2 Roses sometimes even throw in the songs that GNR did live that never made it to an album to keep with the GNR spirit. Simply put, if you want Guns N Roses go see Guns 2 Roses.

Doors open for both gigs at 8pm. Admission is £12 to see Danny Bryant’s Red Eye Band, and £8 for Guns 2 Roses.

Advance tickets are available from The Flowerpot and RAW Promotions.
