Nine Below Zero Acoustic Duo Shoreham Ropetackle

Nine Below Zero’s founding members, Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham, have gone back to their blues roots and are performing a series of intimate, acoustic concerts as a duo.

These are the first ‘old style’ blues shows the pair have performed in their 35 years working together. Covering songs by legends such as Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo, they will also play unplugged versions of well-known Nine Below Zero hits.

The blues have been a huge inspiration for both Mark and Dennis, encouraging them both to take up music and form Nine Below Zero. Dennis said “with these shows we are really trying to get back to the stripped-down simplicity of early blues, played in its rawest form on acoustic instruments… it’s a little daunting for me, to be playing acoustic guitar, no hiding behind the Marshall amp!”

The duo released their first album in April 2015 and have been touring in support ever since. The acoustic shows never fail to bring fans closer to the band and the musical influences that formed them. This promises to be a very special evening indeed.
