The KT Bush Band was originally formed in 1977 by Brian Bath on guitar and Vic King playing the drums. They were joined by Del Palmer on bass and of course Kate Bush on vocals and piano. They played a mixture of classic soul and rock covers along with Brian’s original songs and many of Kate’s songs before they were released the EMI label.
From modest early gigs around well-known venues in London and the south, the band quickly gained a loyal and venue-filling following. Lucky audiences heard songs like “James and the Cold Gun”, “Them Heavy People” and “Oh To Be in Love” long before they were released by songwriter Kate Bush on The Kick Inside!
Now Vic and Brian have decided to reunite and take the music and stories of 1977 back on the road. They are joined by new friends Jodie May on vocals, Steve Bevan on bass and Emily Francis on the keys.
Join us as they recreate the magic of early Kate Bush gigs, with fascinating insights and anecdotes, and even some original KT Bush Band songs not heard since Kate Bush last sang them 40 years ago!
