John Verity Band

A Bromley Blues Club production

Bromley Blues Club are excited to welcome the legendary John Verity Band to Bromley Little Theatre.

John Verity began his music career in the early 1960’s, playing guitar in various local groups around Bradford until he was invited to join the ‘Richard Kent Style’.  Morphing into ‘Tunnel’ and living and working in the US, they supported many of the big names of the day including Jimi Hendrix, Mountain, Canned Heat, Savoy Brown, and Janis Joplin.

JV was spotted by Rod Argent and in 1973 replaced Russ Ballard as the lead vocalist for Argent.

The next few years were spent in recording studios throughout the world, producing, playing guitar, or doing backup vocals with acts including Motorhead, Tank, Ringo Starr, Russ Ballard, Colin Blunstone, Brian Connolly, John Parr, BowWowWow and The Searchers.

At the 1994 Manchester Festival ‘Fender Stratocaster 40th Anniversary’ concert, JV guested, along with Sonny Curtis, Frankie Miller and Rory Gallagher and other legends.

After over sixty years in the business, John is still writing, recording, and performing, with the words he was to hear so many times at the beginning of his career still ringing in his ears — ‘This Rock ‘n’ Roll won’t last you know!’.
