Colin Holt is a respected figure on the local music scene and has become part of the fabric of the area, both song writing and performing as a solo artist with many line ups since the 1980’s.
The current band have been working together since 2006 and teamed up with the legendary Snake Davis in 2010. They can be seen regularly playing to sell out concerts in the region. Colin has received many accolades for his song writing and he makes regular festival and radio appearances.
Snake Davis is one of the UK’s leading saxophonists. He has appeared and recorded with some of the biggest names in contemporary music, including long collaborations with Heather Small of M People, touring the world with Lisa Stansfield, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart and playing with Paul McCartney and Tina Turner.
Collectively they perform an eclectic set of songs which include Colin’s own compositions, music by Snake Davis and carefully selected arrangements of classic songs from both past and present.
The band are working on a new album of Colin Holt original compositions due for release in the summer and are returning once again to Sage Gateshead on September 29 2018 following another sell out concert last year.
