Darby Slick’s Marshall Plan featuring Bex Marshall, Peter Albin, David Getz
Friday, March 30 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$18 - $20
Darby Slick played guitar in the Great Society, the band his sister-in-law, Grace Slick, sang in before joining the Jefferson Airplane. He also wrote “Somebody to Love,” which Grace Slick introduced into the Jefferson Airplane’s repertoire, and sang lead on when the Airplane recorded it for a Top Ten hit. More important, though, Slick was a skilled and distinctive guitarist and songwriter who made a substantial contribution to the birth of San Francisco psychedelic rock, particularly through his mix of rock and Indian styles. He is more obscure than he should be because the Great Society broke up after issuing just one rare single, although several albums’ worth of live and demo recordings have subsequently become available.
UK British Blues Award winner Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock, ragtime and roots pickin’. Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is a writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and now she tours with an incredibly tight three piece band, which augments her unique style of of virtuoso playing, Bex is literally a musical tornado and was recently nomininated third year running in Best Solo/Acoustic Artist Artist category by the European Blues Awards. She also picked up an award at the UK Blues Awards 2013 for Best British Blues Vocal and Album.
