American blues stars Otis and the Elevators are headed for Belfast this weekend for a special Belfast City Blues Festival show this weekend.
Appearing at Grannie Annie’s from 4.30-7pm on Saturday June 30 Otis and his accomplices will play a two-hour plus set as part of the weekend that brings the finest blues and rock to venues across the city.
Festival director, Seamus O’Neill said it was a coup to bring Otis and the Elevators to entertain their followers.
“This band will blow you away,” he said. “If you’ve never seen them before make sure you have this one in your diary”.
Led by Otis Doncaster, vocals and harmonica, the band bring blues, mixed with Americana and roots and a vibe that is irresistible.
Their appearance is part of an increasingly packed weekend of shows that will see venues across the city buzzing with great music.
The ever popular Lee Hedley Band will play at the same venue on Friday, June 29 and The Johnny Max Band will be there on Sunday, July 1.
The festival which is celebrating its tenth year with 60 gigs across 22 venues from June 29 to July 2 has once again been sponsored by American Holidays in partnership with Brand USA, as well as United Airlines and Belfast City Council.
