On his previous visits to the Club we were captivated by Dale Storr. Beautiful, energetic piano playing and great vocals. We’re very pleased to welcome him back this December.
Dale Storr’s musical journey has taken him from his rural Lincolnshire upbringing to his own musical mecca, New Orleans. Dale’s early musical interests were inspired by his parents’ record collection of early rock’n’roll and country music. Dale’s ambition has always been to play the music of New Orleans, which can be anything from a classically influenced minuet, a latin rhumba, a back o’ town junker blues to a frenzied boogie woogie. As seen with every Dale Storr performance, he’s certainly fulfilling that ambition. His music is inspired by legendary Big Easy pianists James Booker, Dr. John, Professor Longhair and Allen Toussaint.
