2017 is kicking off with a bigger bang. The recent launch of Blue and Lonesome by the Rolling Stones saw acknowledgement for the Ealing Club on CBS television along with a mention in Rolling Stone magazine’s review of the album.
On January 12th, ‘Ealing’ was pushed to the eyes to 2.2 million followers on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as The Rolling Stones marked Charlie Watt’s first gig with the Stones back in 1962.
2017 is set to be an exciting year for the Ealing music scene, with some great line ups booked in for gigs and festivals throughout the year, kicking off with a milestone gig on 8th February. Manfred Mann legend Paul Jones returns to Ealing, accompanied by Blues guitarist Dave Kelly.
Expect to see launch of the film ‘Suburban Steps To Rockland – The Story of The Ealing Club’. This feature film documentary has recently been post-produced and like all independent films, it will require continued support to help bring it to a screen near you.
The Ealing Eclectic project returns to the Red Room on February 23rd with more dates to be announced next week. The 23rd February 2017 will be a showcase of up and coming rock and blues inspired acts, with contemporary influences that deserve a place in any town.
