Analyse his music and superb self-penned songs and you’ll find the influences of blues, country, even psychedelia.

Born in Birmingham, Steve first came to prominence as the leader of The Uglys, an uncompromising outfit at the forefront of the city’s burgeoning 1960s music scene.

By the early 1970s he had formed the five-piece Steve Gibbons Band which enjoyed success in the singles charts and has been perennially popular on the live circuit ever since.

With a huge international following, Steve’s long career has encompassed 17 albums.

Along the way he has worked and toured with many bands including The Who, Little Feat, Lynard Skynard and ELO.

Steve is an inspired songwriter and many of his songs feature colourful characters. The most notable cover of a Steve Gibbons song is the title track of Roger Daltrey’s album ‘One Of The Boys’.

The show takes place on Saturday, September 19 starting at 8pm.

Tickets cost £14 and are available from the box office tel. 01524 582803 or from the online shop at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform.
