Date: 23/09/2008           Category: Arts and Libraries

One of this country’s best-loved and most enduring musicians, Joe Brown celebrates 50 years in the business with a stop at The Central Theatre on Sunday, 19 October. Joe will be joined on stage by his famous backing band, The Bruvvers, and two members of his family – his record-producing son Pete, and daughter Sam, who had a massive hit with “Stop” back in 1988 and regularly performs with Jools Holland at the Rochester Castle Concerts. The show has already played to sell-out houses during the first leg of this national tour, which also celebrates the gold status of Joe’s “Very Best Of” album. Joe is as busy as ever, having recently played with his band on BBC TV’s Later With Jools Holland and helped close the show at the Royal Albert Hall in the Concert For George Harrison. He even appeared at last year’s Glastonbury Festival to critical acclaim. Joe’s first love has always been performing live - and now's your chance to see one of the all-time great British talents for yourself. Along with band, Joe will be on stage all evening and the musical styles incorporated into his show are as unique as the man himself. Timeless classics, rockabilly, gospel, country, folk, electric rock 'n' roll are all interwoven with Joe’s effervescent style and humour.
