Already booked for the Leeds Blues festival, The Lowdown Blues Band gave the crowded Duck and Drake a spectacular glimpse of what to expect over the bank holiday event. With the fabulous bluesy voice of lead singer Mick Agnew and a band full of quality musicians, its easy to see why the band are mentioned in the same breath as the legendary Dr Browns Blues Band. From Blues classics to Rock ‘N’ Roll favourites every song was sung and played to the fullest effect. To get people dancing at 6-00 on a Sunday afternoon is a rare achievement, The Lowdown Blues Band did it with ease. With an unexpected guest spot from Alex Eden of Crosscut Saw the Duck and Drake faithful were in "Blues" heaven. As Mick Agnew finished the gig singing about a high quality car (Mercedes Benz) the audience realised that they had just witnessed a high quality singer and band. Bring on the festival !
