The definitive guide to live music and gigs in the Crewe area.
Bernie is primarily known for his work with Whitesnake having written or co-written with David Coverdale many of the group’s hit songs, such as “Here I Go Again”.
In more recent years, Marsden has toured with his bands Company of Snakes, M3 (both formed with fellow former Whitesnake members Micky Moody and Neil Murray), and performed with Elkie Brooks.
On the Sweden Rock Festival on 10 June 2011 Bernie Marsden played with Whitesnake for the first time since 1981, thus becoming the second of only two former Whitesnake band members who have played with Whitesnake in recent years, the other person being Adrian Vandenberg, who also played with them on the Sweden Rock Festival.
In the last ten years, Marsden has been involved in very different projects. The most unusual being two engagements at the National Theatre in London for Nickolas Hytner’s productions of Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” and “Henry the V” in collaboration with Simon Webb. Also, he appeared in ZDF television in Germany for their production of “Frankie”, a six-part TV special. After this, Marsden has worked alongside Robert Plant, Paul Weller, Ian Paice and Jon Lord for The Sunflower Jam charity concert in London. Bernie also played Guitar with Ringo Starr and his son Zak Starkey in Monte Carlo. Most recently, he has been playing and writing for guitar virtuoso Joe Bonamassa.
Plus support from Big Wolf Band - a rock blues powerhouse, with a distinctive guitar style and an array of well self penned tracks, backed by the talents of Mick Jeynes(bass), Tim Jones(drums) and Paul Brambani(keys) the band delivers every time. Now featuring Zoe Green on vocals the band delivers energy filled sets, Spontaneous improvised breaks, dynamic highs and lows, bringing a song down to a whisper before exploding with energy and power that capture the true meaning of live music!
“If you could wrap up everything revered about the era of music they call Classic Rock, you will find it in Big Wolf Band’s album called “A Rebel’s Story”. The band not only embraces traditional blues, but they also blend the genre with classic rock influences. Combine that with fine vocals and deft guitar riffs that weave magic throughout 13 original tracks, and what you have is an album containing a treasure trove of blues-rock that has been produced with artistic attention and care – not one bit overdone. Without a doubt, “A Rebel’s Story” belongs on the playlist for the next road trip of any blues-rock music lover" - DJ Jordan, BluesMusicFan.com
