Blues fans can enjoy a free evening of authentic music in Burnley on Sunday.

The Hoochie Coochie Band are a four-piece outfit who play an eclectic mix of songs heavily influenced by R &B music of the 60s and 70s.

Formed in 1988, they were the first band to take the stage at the first Burnley National Blues Festival, where they subsequently regularly appeared, including an appearance on the Main Stage at the sixth festival.

They have also participated in several of the annual Colne Rhythm and Blues Festivals.

They have also played as the support act to major touring bands including Otis Grand and The Dance Kings, the Smokin’ Joe Kubek Band (featuring Bnois King) from Texas, and The Norman Beaker Band.

After a long break, the band have reformed with a couple of new members (but still fronted by guitar vocalist Fred Hoyles) and the ‘Hoochies’ are out to prove blues-based music is as vital as ever.

The Hoochie Coochie Band appear at Briercliffe Social Club on Sunday at 7pm.
