Rod Stewart Songbook at The Apex...

Rod Stewart Songbook at The Apex

 

If you didn’t make it to Rod Stewart’s Portland Road gig last month, here’s the next best thing!

 

Formed by Rod Stewart’s guitarist and collaborative songwriter Jim Cregan, Cregan & Co play the Rod Stewart Songbook, with nearly four decades of hits.

 

Even Rod Stewart himself admits: “If you can't afford my ticket, go see these guys - they're just as good and half the price!"

 

When The Faces broke up in 1975, Rod Stewart started his own band. One of the most in?uential guitarists in this line-up was Jim Cregan. Now, more than 40 years on Jim, together with four outstanding musicians, performs that well-loved music under the name 'Cregan & Co'.

 

Jim Cregan was Rod’s co-producer, co-writer and musical director for nearly twenty years and the pair remain good friend to this day. His songs have also been recorded by Joe Cocker, Willie Nelson and Kid Rock, amongst many others, and he has played on stage with Jeff Beck, Frank Zappa, Pete Townsend and Chuck Berry. Oh yes and Tina Turner, Elton John, Cat Stevens and Katie Melua to name a few! Jim has received over 40 gold and platinum records to date, including his guitar solo on Cockney Rebel's "Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile)"!

 

Vocalist/guitarist Ben Mills was awarded a platinum album for his debut release which charted at No. 3 in the official UK album charts. Equally at home on both guitar and piano, he has worked with musical legends Tony Bennett and Barry Manilow, written songs with Mark Owen (Take That) and in 2006 Ben reached the final of The X-Factor, winning accolades from Simon Cowell for his gravelly, soulful voice.

 

A master of both electric and upright bass, Pat Davey is in demand as a session musician and live performer. He has toured the world with The Tom Robinson band, Zoot Money and Rumer, as well as jazz greats like Ronnie Scott.

 

Harry James (drums)? and Sam Tanner (keyboards)? are no strangers to Bury St Edmunds – Harry played here recently with Magnum, while Sam is also front man with funk-soul band, Brother Strut.

 

Cregan & Co are at The Apex on Wednesday 24, at 7.30pm, see www.theapex.co.uk or ring 01284 758000 for more information or to book tickets.
