Oli Brown Band
Described by Classic Rock magazine as "One of the best & brightest guitar heroes performing in the world today", the 22-year-old British guitar sensation returns to the UK in April 2012 for his biggest headline tour to date.
Currently performing as special guest to the legendary blues-man John Mayall, 2012 will be the year to catch the musician everyone is talking about!

This event takes place at O2 Academy Newcastle, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Up until 2002, Oli Brown had never picked up a guitar, yet by 2006 (at just 16) he had toured in America, twice, opening for Blues royalty such as Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, shared UK stages with Walter Trout, Paul Jones, Buddy Whittington and even the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall. Such hallowed connections only serve to reaffirm the belief, that for many, Oli is the most promising Blues man to emerge from Britain in a long time. Not only a guitar prodigy but also a singer, songwriter and consummate performer. This is a young man who shows total dedication to the genre he loves. Voted 'Male Vocalist of the Year' & 'Young Artist of the Year' - British Blues Awards 2010.
