Drummer Gordy Marshall in Legend of a Band

Two musicians who were with the Moody Blues for more than 20 years are bringing their tribute to the iconic band to Chesterfield.

Drummer Gordy Marshall and keyboard player Paul Bliss star in Legend of a Band - a Tribute to the Moody Blues which rolls into the Winding Wheel on Tuesday, September 27.

Experience impeccable performances of Moody Blues’ hits Nights in White Satin, Go Now, Tuesday Afternoon, Legend of a Mind (Timothy Leary’s Dead), I Know You’re Out There Somewhere, Question, Isn’t Life Strange – plus the massive hit Forever Autumn and a rendition of Eve of the War from Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds.

Gordy toured the world with The Moody Blues for 25 years. For six of those years, he also toured with Justin Hayward on the arena tours of Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds.

As a session musician, he has played with Sir Cliff Richard, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Emma Bunton (Spice Girls), Joss Stone, Gary Barlow, Ricky Wilson (Kaiser Chiefs), Mike Batt, Katie Melua, Chris Spedding and Herbie Flowers among others.

His first travel book, Postcards from Rock & Roll Tour. was published in 2012. It’s a candid unexpected and often hilarious account of what it’s like to travel the world playing to sell-out audiences, whilst living out of a suitcase, flying in private jets and spending days and days on a tour bus.

Paul Bliss joined the Moody Blues in 1990 to record the album Keys of the Kingdom and toured with them for 20 years, achieving the honour of being their longest-serving keyboard player.

l We are giving away two pairs of tickets to the show in Chesterfield and four copies of the book Postcards from Rock & Roll Tour.
