JOE BROWN MBE is unique, a genuine one off. With a history that spans music hall, skiffle, Rock 'n' Roll, Theatre, Films, TV, Radio and even Circus (his Grandfather performed with Buffalo Bill). A real survivor and a mega musical talent, the musician's musician JOE BROWN has seen it all and, as his fans can testify, his tales of life on the road are, quite simply, hilarious. He has stories and jokes - and he knows how to tell 'em.
 
So now for a real treat and, for the first time ever... JUST JOE, the man by himself, uncut, solo, uncensored, an audience with. JUST JOE will see Joe talk about his early days, growing up in a pub in London's East End, discovering Skiffle, becoming a Rock 'n' Roll pioneer and touring with the likes of Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury and Gene Vincent before headlining shows with The Beatles as opening act.  The heady days of Rock 'n' Roll will be laid bare and the evening promises to be an intimate glimpse into the hectic world of one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved performers.
 
This show however will not only be stories and anecdotes it will feature a lot of music, aided and abetted by his old friend Henry Gross. US born Henry is no stranger to the stage either.
