JOHN VERITY is the man and musician who is ‘blue to his soul’ and has been one of the most consistent performers on the British blues rock circuit for many years.

Opening for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and others in the US and then his time as frontman with Argent who had a massive hit with their single ‘Hold Your Head Up’.

After time spent primarily in the studio, recording and guesting with among others, Colin Blunstone, Ringo Starr, Saxon and The Zombies, John is experiencing a musical renaissance.

The band come to the Crawdaddy to promote and showcase numbers from John’s latest release ‘Blue To My Soul’. This is John’s 20th album since the ‘Argent’ days and was recorded with some of the best musicians on the circuit.

The album consists of six, blues flavoured originals, and four covers selected from his live rep including an acoustic number featuring guitarist Max Milligan, last seen at the club with Cherry Lee Mewis. John is ably assisted by Liam James Gray on drums and regular visitor to the club, Roger Inniss on bass duties.
