The Spanish music scene is all the richer since Black Glitter was launched at the prestigious Steinways Jazz and Blue’s club in Denia at the end of last month. Recently formed by Paul McCartney’s former ‘Wings’ drummer Geoff Britton, the band took the club by storm with its drive, passion and a professional attitude, attributes you would expect from any musical combination headed up by the dedicated Geoff Britton.
Geoff has worked the rock scene since the late 60’s when he featured with top bands such as East of Eden, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Rough Diamond and the ultimate career booster Paul McCartney’s Wings when in 1974 he made the drummers chair his own and recorded many great albums with the great man including the world wide super hit, Venus and Mars.
GB told the EWN that after gigging around the UK for the past seven months he is pleased to be back in Spain and over the moon with the positive reception Black Glitter received on its debut.
He added, “One of the most exciting things about the group is that lead singer Kelly Lee is an incredibly strong vocalist which enables us to do the lady soul and blues repertoires to the max, making the scene just that bit different from the usual songs most bands cover. Kelly is perfectly relaxed performing great songs associated with Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston and all in the original keys which shows a great talent.”
The Black Glitter Band also incorporates two top Spanish musicians, Carlos Bou on lead guitar and Chema Reig on bass.
They will be performing at various venues over the coming months ranging from The Beer House in Santa Paula to Don Quijote in Moraira, as well as a regular slot at Denia’s Jazz and Blues club Steinways.
