Quartet

Catch The Love Finders Quartet performing a night of blues, featuring electric blues violin, guitar, bass and drums, from urban Chicago and the Mississippi delta, to the British blues invasion, and swing jazz classics at The Ellington Jazz Club on Tuesday 23 July.

The band's deep love for storytelling through the blues brings together a show featuring the immediately identifiable electric violin and guitar sound, and the band’s own unique musical style. Classics from the likes of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Gary Moore and Eric Clapton to the swing of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, from gentle acoustic renditions, to lively house rockers and searing blues… and some surprises!

Fronted by Michael King on guitar, Rupert Guenther on electric violin, with Campbell Carew on drums and Nathan King on bass, The Love Finders Quartet play easy going traditional blues, instrumentals, and swing jazz classics.

The quartet bring together a love of the blues and a deep friendship between the players, where the music is all about weaving the feeling and the story-telling. Coupling Rupert's experience of decades working as sideman to the stars (Sir George Martin, Olivia-Newton John, Demis Roussos etc) with Michael’s heart-felt guitar and vocals, Campbell's joyous drums and Nathan's salt-of-the-earth bass playing (and his ubiquitous white hat!), this is music to uplift and enlighten, not just entertain.

Don't miss this! Come down and feel the love.
