THE BROTHERS GODDARD - CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR
- Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club
WHO ARE THE GODDARD BROTHERS ?
In the summer of 2002 two British brothers embarked on a road trip that would have elements of an odyssey and echoes of Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’. Their shared love of rock’n’roll & soul is one that is easy for anyone to understand, but what is more complicated is the delicate balance of factors and influences that led to the creation of the unique legacy of this great American art form that sprang first from New Orleans and then spread up through the Mississippi Delta to the rapidly urbanizing centres of Memphis, St Louis and Chicago more than a century ago. Mark & Jeremy Goddard, both musicians brought up on a diet of stride piano, jazz and blues, wanted to see these places and feel their music first-hand.
They drove 7,000 miles to the great Music Towns & Cities that have shaped America. Along the way they met Bobby “Blue” Bland in Tennessee, attended Al Green’s Gospel church on a Sunday in Memphis, saw The Isley Brothers in Brooklyn, heard Buddy Guy in Chicago, almost got lost in the murky motels of Elvis Presley Blvd before honoring the King himself at his home in Graceland, visited Sun Studios where Jerry Lee Lewis recorded his rollicking piano performances and even sat in with Jazz Bands in the French Quarter in New Orleans…
It is the memories and experiences that they shared in the juke joints, jazz clubs, blues bars, dancefloors and on stages from New York to New Orleans, Nashville to Austin , Memphis to Clarksdale, and St Louis to Chicago that have shaped their vision for how to honor and continue the spirit of Rock’n’Roll.
They lived, breathed, sweated and imbibed the complex cocktail of American musical heritage. Now they are aiming to return to their musical roots and have started a new act The Brothers Goddard that explores why Rock’n’Roll shook the world.
