The Maz Mitrenko Band - Powerful Blues Rock

For blues-rock aficionados, Maz Mitrenko will need no introduction – but for the uninitiated, after many years working alongside the legendary Trevor Burton, guitarist/vocalist Maz formed The Maz Mitrenko Band band in 2006 and they have gone from strength-to-strength, providing “a mixture of finely honed original songs alongside a range of classic blues and rock covers from the likes of Rory Gallagher and Jimi Hendrix”.

The Band, also featuring bassist Pete Vickers (Tony McPhee, Andy Hart) and drummer Phil Brittle (The Band Of Joy, Quill), are currently working on a fourth album for release in 2019 but are taking time-out for a few gigs and this will definitely be a show not to miss.
