The Club is fast becoming the place for musicians to celebrate their birthdays and tonight we will be hosting the birthday celebration of one of our favourite Groove guitarists, Dave Ital. A regular here at the Club with artists such as Imaani, Derek Nash and Michelle John, Dave’s reputation as a studio and gigging musician is of the highest calibre. His powerful yet sophisticated Groove playing has been heard with the likes of Chaka Khan, Tom Jones, Nile Rodgers, Incognito, Beyonce?, The Sugababes, Level 42, Craig David, M-People, Bryan Ferry, Jason Rebello, Mica Paris, Beverly Knight, Take That, Lulu, Bobby Womack and Maceo Parker and he is first call guitarist for a host of other high profile artists. Tonight Dave will be celebrating a “special” birthday (we’re not asking…) in the company of some equally exalted groove musicians, including Gary Sanctuary-keyboard, Orefo Orakwue-bass, Ash Soan-drums. And if all that wasn’t enough you can expect plenty of illustrious guests to drop by to pay their respects to this popular musician and maybe play a song or two as well. Promises to be quite a night.
"Dave Ital on lead guitar is excellent, at one point taking the audience on an astonishing musical voyage with a great guitar solo" MS Times; "Cool guitar-led funk, jazz and soul band featuring session man Dave Ital" Time Out
