NINE BELOW ZERO
Friday 6th November at 8pm
Box Office: 01905 611427
Huntingdon Hall welcomes back Nine Below Zero in November, touring with the classic line-up of all four original band members: Dennis Greaves on guitar and vocals, Mark Feltham on harmonica, Mickey ‘Stix’ Burkey on drums and Brian Bethell on bass. Mickey played live with the band for the first time since the '80s in November 2012 at the 30th Anniversary gig in Islington and now rejoins the band on a permanent basis.
During the set, the band will be performing songs from the first three albums – Live At The Marquee, Don't Point Your Finger and Third Degree.
Mickey and Dennis co-wrote many of the songs on Don't Point Your Finger and Third Degree. These two classic albums were re-packaged, re-mastered and released through Universal Music earlier this year. Don't Point Your Finger, originally released in 1981, was Nine Below Zero's second album and Third Degree, originally released in 1982, included the single 11+11, which was performed on the first episode of cult TV show, The Young Ones. This album spent six weeks in the album chart and David Bailey, renowned photographer of The Beatles, The Stones and the Kray Twins, took the photograph for the album front cover artwork.
Band member Dennis Greaves said “We never had a hit single, but we became a cult band with an almost fanatical following. It will be great for us all to reconnect with the fans”.
