Blues Rockers THE DRIVERS & FRIENDSare all highly accomplished musicians, with a collective recording history that includes: Cat Stevens, Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart, Edgar Broughton Band, Mike Oldfield, Lewis Taylor, Manfred Manns Earth Band, Jona Lewie and Ace. The band is fronted by JOHNNY DRIVER - a veteran rocker who has been releasing quality music since the 60s.
JOHNNY DRIVER’S first professional success took place as a songwriting member of THE FLIES, a combo based out of Melbourne that had Australian chart hits. THE FLIES were known to land support gigs for some of the biggest 60’s attractions touring down under, including THE ROLLING STONES and ROY ORBINSON. Johnny then put out a number of solo albums under the name CREEPY JOHN THOMAS, an act that has built a dedicated cult following over the years.
During the late 70s Johnny headed to Berlin, where CJT were popular, and started up THE DRIVERS. The band have had some lineup changes over the years but are still going strong. This is must-see gig for Blues-Rock fans!
