For 20 years The Hitman Blues Band have been rocking the New York area with their own searing brand of blues and rock.

This month will be the fourth time the Eel Pie Club has been lucky enough host to The Hitman Blues Band and they have picked up a considerable fan base both at the club and throughout the UK.

Led by founding member Russell “Hitman” Alexander, who is the son of jazz vibe great Ray Alexander, the band will give an exciting show of boogie, funk and shuffle blues.

Vocalist and guitarist Hitman has also shared stages with Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and Whitney Houston.

The band’s latest album, Blues Enough, received fantastic reviews in the American music press and airplay throughout the States and Europe.

Five per cent of profits from ticket sales will be donated to The Princess Alice Hospice in Esher.
