Dean Newton - Guitar and vocals.
A graduate of the London College of Music, Dean has studied under some of the most highly respected guitarists in the world. He is an in-demand West Cumbrian based musician and guitar teacher who’s playing style is very modern yet rooted in the traditions of Jazz and Blues. Never one to stand still, he is always seeking out new sounds and concepts to find that elusive “cutting edge”. Dean is also an endorsed artist for Tokai Guitars.
John Marcangelo - Drums.
John was born in Whitehaven, Cumbria but spent his early years in New York. After attending Leeds College of Music he moved to London working with the composer Cornelius Cardew. He later formed the band Violinski with Mik Kaminski of E.L.O making the UK Top Twenty with his composition “Clog Dance”. John has writing and performing credits on many projects/sessions as diverse as TV commercials and Allan Holdsworth. John was also a private student of legendary Jazz drummer Philly Joe Jones.
Jeff Barnes - Bass.
Jeff has been playing bass for over 40 years, and has toured all over the world with different ensembles, both independently and as part of the band on different luxury cruise liners. His playing style is influenced by the late great Jaco Pastorius among others, fused together to make his own unmistakeable sound.
Live Music Bar
Overlooking Montpellier Gardens, one of the town centre’s most picturesque locations, the vividly painted Blues Bar packs an unlikely punch amongst its more gentile neighbours.
However, due to its unique, welcoming vibe, its insistence in providing high quality, free live music every night of the week, and the incredible support of its customers, the bar has developed a strong position in the community, as licensees Simon and Sharon Colgan, explain:
"The Blues Bar is not just a pub, it has a defined character that has aged extremely well," says Simon. "It is the only live music venue in Harrogate that has kept its identity during the past 21 years and it continues to attract new customers and performers from miles around."
Modelled on an Amsterdam cafe´ bar it has been going for more than 20 years.
