Following his performance of the show on December 13th in Dubai, "Guy Pratt is The Sideman" is lined up for another unmissable performance, this time being held in London in February 2017.
For those who aren't aware of this show, in February 2013 Guy performed in a packed, sold out Komedia in Brighton for the first night of a then new tour, presenting "Guy Pratt is The Sideman". The one-man show celebrated Guy's 30 years as the bass player of choice for the heavyweights of rock and pop, including Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Robert Palmer, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bryan Ferry, Jimmy Page, David Coverdale, Womack & Womack, and The Smiths.
His one man show is all about life at the pointy end of the music business; Guy regales audiences with at times jaw-dropping stories from behind the scenes - the real truth about being on the road or in a recording studio! His self-deprecating wit is irresistible and his rip-roaring anecdotes have to be heard to be believed. With frequent musical examples courtesy of his beloved vintage Fender bass, and a electric guitar and amp combo, the Brighton audience clearly had a great time, even coercing Guy into an encore for the extended show. Similar scenes were found on the rest of that tour, three years ago now.
Due to popular demand, the show is performed on occasion still, and you have an opportunity early next year to catch it, in London. The show (with a live set by Willow Robinson, and a DJ set by Gus Robertson) takes place from 9pm on Friday, February 10th at Juju's Bar & Stage, which is part of the Old Truman Brewery complex on London's Brick Lane. Tickets are a bargain £10 (plus fees) from Seetickets.com.
