A high-energy ‘power trio’ pay tribute to both Jimi Hendrix and Cream next month.

Voodoo Room perform A Night Of Hendrix & Cream at The Capitol, Horsham, on Saturday, February 6 (7.30pm).

Rockers Pete Orr, John Tonks and Andy Tolman will be joined by some of the UK’s finest musicians.

Pete Orr has been thrilling audiences throughout the UK and Europe for the past three decades, mixing classic riff-based rock anthems with the energy and style evocative of their time.

His stunning solos and epic vocal stylings have wowed all those lucky enough to have seen this virtuoso inject new life into the classics.

John Tonks is a leading UK session drummer. His touring and recording credits include: Duran Duran, Fish, Thunder, The Streets, Steve Winwood, Lulu, Chris Difford, Paul Young, Thea Gilmore and Tricky.

When John is not available he is covered by Pete Turtle or Tony Kiley.

Both men are first-rate drummers whose playing credits include Chris DeBurgh, Push, Marlena Shaw and The Blow Monkeys.

Andy Tolman started playing the bass in 1988 and his first major influence was Jack Bruce.

Moving from blues to jazz Andy was influenced by players such as Jaco Pastorius and this love of jazz led him to study at the Royal Academy of Music.

He graduated in 1997.

Andy’s amazing bass technique and sublime groove is making him the first call for visiting US artists like Ben E. King, Rodriguez, The Emotions and Leon Ware.

He has also featured on recording sessions with Michael Kamen, Sir George Martin and Alfie Boe.

When touring commitments prevent Andy being available Steven Oates or John Currie take over bass duties. Both are accomplished players who have played with Big Boy Bloater and The Drifters.

Tickets for the show cost £20 (concessions/friends £19).
