The Mark Thornley Blues Band


About Mark Thornley.....

Played for many years pro and semi pro,some great festivals including the main stage at The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival ,The Bulldog Bash in Stratford,The T.T. races in The Isle Of Man, top blues venues, support(most memorable support slot was with The Healers opening for the legendary Peter Green with the late great Cozy Powell on drums , and the excellent Neil Murray on bass, great night),and various headline spots. Last band recorded and gigged with was Red Handed blues band , we recorded the Handful of Blues C D in one day,time is money,which ive never had much of. (which was played in an hour long show dedicated to Red Handed on Nick Dows Sunday night blues show on BBC Radio Lancashire, best prog. on the radio., Cheers Nick.) .2 tracks off the C D are on the player. The track too long lasts the night was co written by the four of us, and our tribute to Lee Brilleaux, One Step forward by D.Bronze. Doin' a Deal , and Blues in F are a couple of my instrumental tracks featuring firstly my good friend Paul Randall (Bass), and the superb Mark Yarwood (drums), and secondly the excellent Red Handed ryhthm section. Previous long term band was the aforementioned Healers, many a good gig and time was had during those years. Am now fronting my own 3 piece blues band , featuring Paul Randall on bass and Mick McDonald on Drums .The track Sad Wer'e Through, recorded live at Anchor Studios in Hutton , Preston, thankyou guys, will be in the live set , as will tracks by Joe Bonamassa , Gary Moore, S.R.V. and others , and more original material such as Play The Blues. Thankyou to good friends Alan Pearson, Nick Dow, Lucas Campbell for support and encouragement.
