Dr Feelgood will be playing their quintessentially British Rhythm and Blues for us on Saturday 25 May
Hailing from Canvey Island, Essex, Dr. Feelgood are known primarily for their high energy live performances. With a total of 74 years service between them, the band continue to enthral audiences as far away as Japan with the kind of “no-nonsense” live energy that first endeared them to a generation of music fans over thirty years ago.
It’s been a lengthy journey for Britain’s most enduring, and best loved R&B band, and, whilst having faced many obstacles along the way, have also found the hearts of many thousands of fans who continue to support the band, year after year.
A film by Julien Temple about the very early days of the band, Oil City Confidential, premiered at the London Film Festival on 22 October 2009, and received a standing ovation. Guest of honour was Lee Brilleaux’s mother Joan Collinson, along with his widow Shirley and children Kelly and Nick. All the surviving members of the original band were present along with manager Chris Fenwick, former tour manager and Stiff Records boss Jake Riviera and other friends and colleagues of the band.
