TGt Meets... Dr Feelgood

One of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world, Dr Feelgood, are performing at the upcoming Lechlade Music Festival. So we thought we'd have a chat, here's what they had to say!

How would you describe your music?

We play very straight forward rhythm and blues and rock and roll with all the gusto we can muster!

What can festival-goers expect from your live show?

Anyone coming to the show can expect all our "hits" and more.

What are the main differences between playing festivals and regular gigs?

Festivals attract a wider audience than our own shows and it gives us the chance to play to people that otherwise would not get to see us.

Who have been your biggest musical influences?

Our biggest influences are without a doubt the blues men from the southern delta and Chicago ... many artists from the Chess label for example.

What have been your fondest memories from one of your shows?

Our fondest memories from touring is the chance to travel and experience the life and culture from all the countries we visit each year.

Are you going to be exploring much of the local area when you’re in Lechlade for the festival?

We won't get a chance to explore Lechlade much, as it is a flying visit ... in and out.

To survive a music festival, what are your three essentials you need in your luggage?

To survive a music festival you need a fully equipped dressing room and a good backstage crew!

What’s next for the band?

We will be touring until the end of the year and then we will enjoy a break in the New Year before it all starts again in mid January.

If you could pick one highlight from your career so far, what would it be?

Too many great memories to draw from ... however Glastonbury was a blast 2 years ago and I'm sure Lechlade will be a great night.
