Cupar Blues and Beyond Club will return to Watts on September 7.

FANs of Cupar’s Blues and beyond Club have not one but two acts to enjoy when the popuplar club resumes next week.

Following the summer break the club returns to Watts on Friday, September 7, with two great acts; Opening and straight from entertaining the hordes at the Edinburgh festival is accomplished blues man Richard Blues who brings his quirky style to Cupar for the second year. Following on from him is Gerry Jablonski and the Electric Band

This band is a high-energy outfit from Scotland that blend blues roots with influences of classic rock and folk.


According to Classic Rock magazine, “Jablonski has the blues under his fingernails” and last year they certainly created quite a stir at the Colne Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival!

Anyone who has never seen Gerry and The Electric Band on stage is truly missing an incredible energetic, visually exciting and ear pleasing performance.

With a past appearance at Jools Hollands Jamhouse for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, being voted Best Solo Act at two festivals and a presence at numerous other festivals across the UK and Europe, this is a band not to miss!

The veteran from across the Northern border was influenced by trail blazing masters like Jimmy Page, Johnny Winter, John Martyn, Bowie and Jeff Beck as well as the highest calibre of blues/rock outfits which include Led Zeppelin, Cream and The Who.

The band came together in its current form only a few years ago when drummer Dave Innis returned to Aberdeen after a spell in London and began looking round for new musical projects.

He called up Gerry, harmonica player Peter Narojczyk and bass man Grigor Leslie and before they knew it The Electric Band was born.

They have played together now for over three years and state that nothing will stop them on their way to the top.

Club spokesman Charlie Milne said: “If ever four people were meant to play together, then this is it, so best hold on to your seats when Gerry Jablonski take to the stage!”
