This Saturday 19th November and a gig not to miss for sure with Danny and the Champions of the World. This will be Empty Room Promotions last gig for 2011 and although they’ve been on there travels around Buckingham and the heady heights of the big smoke that is Oxford, it’s great to be back in the quiet little village of Tingewick, though this Saturday won’t be quiet for long! Although Danny is no stranger to Empty Rooms, having played previously solo as Danny George Wilson in 2006, it’s been a four years wait to finally nail him down to bring the band along. The current line-up of the Champs is very different from that which recorded their 2008 debut album and its 2010 follow-up, ‘Streets Of Our Time’. This new incarnation of the group is a proper rock’n’roll band, wholly and entirely committed to being the Champs.
The current CD ‘Hearts & Arrows’, is a great rock’n’roll record. as Danny explained “My reference points were Tom Petty and Thin Lizzy, Dr Feelgood and Nick Lowe,” It is also the rockingest waxing the Champs have thus far delivered. Check out the video and turn it up really loud and you’ll see what we mean.
Support for the evening will be The Lucky Strikes, who played for Empty Rooms earlier in the year in support for Mama Rosin, but it Oxford, so this will also be their first visit to Tingewick, the music venue that thinks it’s a village hall.
Doors are at 7.30pm and more information at tickets can be found a www.empty-rooms.com see you there
