Top guitarist at Coast

ONE OF the UK’s top blues/rock guitarists, Robin Bibi, will perform at Coast, Arbroath, on Saturday. His gig, entry to which is free, opens at 9.30 p.m.

Bibi paid his dues working with such names as Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Ben.E.King, The Pretty Things and Helen Shapiro, and launched the Robin Bibi Band in 1996. The Band’s debut album ‘Blue Thrash Therapy’ was released a year later and quickly sold out leading to a recent re-release. Five albums on, Robin’s acoustic album ‘Fast Life Songs’ has also received critical acclaim and continues to sell well.

Blues, funk, soul, rock, reggae and jazz are all rolled together in The Robin Bibi Band’s own feel-good concoction. Above all, the Band’s aim is to give their audience a night to remember whilst guaranteeing the best British Blues Rock can offer in a tried and tested, exciting, spontaneous, power trio format.

Because of their widely known reputation with a highly entertaining stage presentation, the Robin Bibi Band is now one of the busiest bands round the southern music venue circuit and has played most of the major Blues festivals in the UK, Ireland, and Europe.

The Bibi Band’s live line up is subject to occasional regional changes. Robin can be seen using the best musicians around – Matt Beable, Martin York, Paul Robinson, Chris Bellshaw, Pete Shaw, Jonathan Banks, Darby Todd and Ed Spevok. The tried and tested trio format gives each member the space to stretch out and express themselves musically.

It’s exuberant passionate, dynamic, exciting and fun! It’s music played straight from the heart, it will move your head, your heart and of course your feet! Check out the sound for yourself.
