Piano maestro Gavin Povey brings his band The Fabulous Oke-She-Moke-She-Pops to Alexander’s in Chester on Saturday, October 22.

Gavin began learning piano at the age of five and discovered rhythm and blues at age 13 when he heard a 78-rpm of Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson performing Boogie Woogie Man.

Gavin realised what his piano tutor was trying to teach him was not what he wanted to learn.

A lifetime of performing, TV, touring and recording followed, with such names as Kirsty MacColl, Dave Edmunds, Steve Cropper, Dion, Shakin’ Stevens, Graham Parker, Cliff Richard, Al Green and many others.

Gavin now has realised a long-time ambition of playing his own songs with his own band.
