Answer: at one time or another, they have all been involved in the making of records that have been produced by Mike Vernon.

Mike is best known as the founder of the Blues record label Blue Horizon. Maybe not quite so well-known is that his ‘other’ job is that of vocalist. As part of his 2020 tour, Mike and his outfit, The Mighty Combo bring their own brand of tough, energising and tuneful R&B to the Malt Shovel Tavern.

The Mighty Combo features Kid Carlos; an outstanding young guitar player from Spain; Ian Jennings (upright bass), Matt Little (keyboards), Paul Tasker (saxophone) and Mike Hellier (drums).

Full-on 100% good-time music guaranteed.
