Two Great Concerts in March

A Night of “Blues & Rock” featuring “Hundred Seventy Split”
Friday 4th March at the Palacio de la Paz, Fuengirola.

Big M Promotions are bringing the legendary LEO LYONS (Founding member of the iconic band “Ten Years After”) with his band “Hundred Seventy Split” to the Palacio de la Paz, Fuengirola,.
This concert is a MUST for all blues fans, especially after the annual “Mijas Blues Festival” was cancelled in 2015.

Born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in November 1943, Leo became a professional musician at the age of 16 and as a founding member of the band “Ten Year After” has been an on-stage eyewitness to some of the most pivotal moments in Rock and Roll history.
In August of 1969 TYA’s now legendary encore “I’m Goin’ Home” was captured on film at
The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, exposing their Jazz/Blues/Rock amalgam to an even larger audience of movie goers. They were blown away by the intensity of the band’s performance when the academy award winning documentary was released. Their ten-minute appearance in the film is an acknowledged highlight and established “Ten Years After” a place in rock history.

Leo’s not the kind of person who lets the grass grow under his feet, and in the summer of 2010 together with guitarist Joe Gooch (who was also a former member of “Ten Years After” having replaced Alvin Lee in 2003) he formed ‘Hundred Seventy Split’; a new, exciting, high energy Blues/Rock power trio showcasing their combined talents.

The pair initially formed a song-writing partnership to write for TYA and have continued writing together ever since. The result was their debut CD ’The World Won’t Stop’ . . .

Leo and Joe resigned from “Ten Years After” at the end of 2013 and in February 2014 released a second CD simply titled, “HSS”. Their third CD ’The Road’ released in February 2015 is still in the Amazon, Germany top ten new Blues CD charts, the highest position reached being #1.

HSS have toured extensively all over Europe building a strong fan base. Their live shows have already proved popular with TYA fans and HSS play TYA classics alongside new material in their shows.

Support band for this concert is the very popular “Mama Paula Blues Band” who appear regularly at top Blues events both in Spain and around Europe. Lead by Mama Paula with the talented Marcelo Saenz on guitar, the MPBB is a real crowd-pleaser.

Special guest artist Tijs Groen (runner up in Holland’s best guitarist 2013) is also appearing on stage from 8.30pm on the night.
