Lewis Floyd Henry @ Church Street Square, Wednesday 10th July 2013

video

Playing as part of the magnificent (seriously, where else can you enjoy hundreds of free gigs as good as these over a two week period?) Birmingham International Jazz and Blues Festival one man band Lewis Floyd Henry touched down from whatever planet he's happily living on to play one of his typically eclectic sets. Embracing everything from blues to rap, metal to hip hop and covering such subjects as...wait for it...sex changes, rollercoasters and the illuminati he played for almost an hour and a half, raising smiles (his lyrics can be hilarious) and pulses (when he gets into a groove it's frankly electrifying). I'm convinced he's the lovechild of Seasick Steve and Jimi Hendrix...

The Birmingham International Jazz and Blues Festivals continues until Sunday 14th July. Check out the programme right here...

The dude's a legend. Pushes his kit around on a busted up pushchair frame. When the rest of the world catches up with him he'll be HUGE.
