Back by popular demand for an exclusive London date, the brilliant Texas guitarist Buddy Whittington is a master of his craft who after 15 years of fronting John Mayall’s Blues Breakers has now made a name for himself his on the international rock/blues circuit.

An archetypal top draw Texas blues guitarist, Buddy Whittington has been part of the Dallas/Fort Worth music scene since he was 14, becoming a celebrated home town virtuoso playing to sell out crowds. In 1993 John Mayall asked Buddy to join to replace Coco Montoya in The Bluesbreakers. He has brought a powerful new dimension to the Blues Breakers' sound on 10 albums: including John Mayall’s all star 70th Birthday Concert, and the award winning ‘In the Palace of the King’ CD.

As Buddy says, "I aim for that Les Paul-through-a-Marshall-tone that Eric refined in '66--it can't be topped! It's that perfect Gibson/Marshall 'thang' that we're all striving for!”

In an age of hype, guitar shedders and inflated egos, Buddy Whitington is a refreshing change – a player of the highest standing with real substance who redefines the blues to his own Texas mould.
