JOHN DENTON’S MIDNIGHT BAND
John Denton has been part of the Midlands music scene for the past twenty years and is acknowledged by many as having one of the best soul-tinged, rock and blues voices in the region.
Throughout his career John has been writing original material with the aim of releasing an album in his own name and ‘Jupiter and the Crescent Moon’ was launched at the Marrs Bar in Worcester in 2013.
John Denton’s Midnight Band is the vehicle for his songwriting but also features material by the likes of Billie Holliday, John Martyn, Robert Cray and Bill Withers. The band is John (vocals & guitar), Colin Warren (bass), Alan Davies (guitar), Matt Dulson (drums) and Robin Powell (keyboards). John, Colin, Alan and Robin also perform, with others, as The Fezz, a homage to Steely Dan – so don’t be surprised if one or two Fagen/Becker songs appear in the set! His other musical ventures include his ‘left-field’ collaboration with Colwall’s finest poet and Spooky Men’s Chorale member, Adrian Mealing, under the banner of The Very Grimm Brothers!
