Jack Bruce Band :24th July 1988

Jack Bruce Blues Band with Dick Heckstall-Smith, Norman Beaker, Tim Franks, David Bainbridge ( source, official Jack Bruce website ) According to the site, Jack also played with the Norman Beaker Band on the Saturday. Apparently Jack has had a long history of playing with Norman .

Norman Beaker has been at the forefront of the British Blues scene for over 3 decades playing with Alexis Korner, Graham Bond, Jack Bruce Tony Ashton, Paul Jones, Eric Burdon and many others .
BB King commented, "Norman is like a white Freddy King", a compliment indeed, and not one wasted on the many artistes Norman has subsequently worked with including: BB, Jimmy Rogers, Buddy Guy, Lowell Fulson, Fenton Robinson, Chuck Berry, Carey Bell James Booker, Jon Lord, Larry Garner and Ruby Turner to name just a few .
Recently the band have been touring Europe with Chris Farlowe and Van Morrison.
They have a new album "Who’s he calling me him" and are permanently on tour. 2011 has seen the band touring with Larry Garner to promote their live album, and of course gigging in their own right and appearing as always with Chris Farlowe, and Jack Bruce
