Mike Sanchez on stage 9.15pm
British singer, pianist and guitarist Mike Sanchez is one of the most exciting and charismatic performers of Rhythm & Blues and Rock 'n' Roll in the world today. His indelible image as a frenetic front man, pumping powerful boogie-woogie from the piano in a soaking red suit, has won him fans from all over the world and attracted a following from many famous rock and blues legends who have lined up to work with him.
Mike spent 2001 - 2004 as a full-time member of Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, fronting the band alongside Georgie Fame, Beverley Skeete, Albert Lee, Andy Fairweather-Low and Eddie Floyd on their annual world tours. The Rhythm Kings released their latest album ‘Just for a Thrill’ and a fabulous DVD filmed during January 2004 titled ‘Let The Good Times Roll’, both featuring Mike’s extensive roll as a member of the ex-Rolling Stones bassist’s touring band.
Mike is currently involved in a number of recording projects and touring line-ups, a recent project was Mike's collaboration with top Swedish bluesmen Knock-Out Greg & Blue Weather, creating the hot rockin' album 'Women & Cadillacs'.
In 2003 Mike released a debut 2-hour DVD titled 'Red Hot …Live!' featuring live shows of his own 4 and 7-piece band and The Mike Sanchez Rhythm & Blues Revue, a Johnny Otis 1950s style show starring doo-wop vocal trio The Extraordinaires and Imelda Clabby.
Mike has recorded a double album of The Mike Sanchez Rhythm & Blues Revue with many special guests, as well as an album with his 4-piece line-up and Grammy Award-winning country rock legend Albert Lee.
Mike's main aim has always been to make every live show his best yet as he continuously enjoys growing acclaim and admiration for his electrifying stage performances from new and old fans of all age groups across the world.
