Nine Below Zero are at Brighton’s Komedia on Thursday, April 18.

Promoter Kairen Kemp said: “In the mid-1970s, Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham arrived with their South London R&B-fuelled 9 Below Zero, and impacted on Britain’s stagnant music scene like a cold shower.

“For high-energy blues you can dance to, 9BZ will not be beaten. Brendan O’Neill and Gerry McAvoy joined two original members to make a powerful line-up. 2012 saw the return of Brian Bethell who played on Third Degree and who was a natural replacement for Gerry McAvoy who has left to concentrate on other projects.

“The band set off in January to take their music to the people who they call their extended family. Hard to believe that Nine Below Zero have been together for 35 years and are just as vibrant and unpredictably brilliant as they have always been.”
