Guitar superstar in Banbury
Legendary guitar slinger Larry Miller brings his mesmerising, rip-roaring show to Banbury’s Mill Theatre tomorrow Saturday, February 9.
The Larry Miller Band is one of the most popular blues and rock acts in the UK. Larry holds the distinction of achieving the record for the most encores at The Cambridge Rock Festival.
In 2009, he played no fewer than seven encores. He embedded himself in the festival’s history and the day was declared ‘national Larry Miller day’!
He returned in 2012 to a standing ovation and the biggest crowd of the festival.
Larry Miller is influenced by some of the guitar greats – Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Gary Moore.
“For me, my moment of inspiration was seeing Rory Gallagher live; I had never experienced anything like it,” he said.
“So loud, so gloriously on the edge of total mayhem, yet Rory was still totally in control. How could I not do this too? Like Rory I’d work under my own name, with a band. I’d do all the writing, singing, producing, playing and leading.”
A hugely charismatic performer, Larry has been refining his own style ever since. He is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, with a love for his music which is simply infectious and has made him something of a superstar.
After many years in the music business and touring constantly, Larry has built up a large following across the UK and is building an ever increasing army of fans in Europe. He has released six albums, all of which have enjoyed critical acclaim. The latest, Unfinished Business, has had rave reviews.
The show will take place at 8.30pm. Tickets are £12 in advance and are available from the box office on 01295 279002.
