The legendary Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express has returned. The famed B3 and keyboard player has created a distinct voice that combines jazz, rock, soul and funk that is clearly recognizable to his millions of fans. With over 30 albums to his name and lengthy stints on the RCA & Warner Bros. labels, Brian Auger has accumulated Grammy Nominations, 10 albums charting in Billboard’s Hot 100, a #1 single, and the title of “The Godfather of Acid Jazz”. Joining Brian is singer Alex Ligertwood (Santana, Jeff Beck, Dixie Dregs, Average White Band), who is an alumnus of the Oblivion Express, going back to the 1972 album, “Second Wind”. Alex’s voice is distinct and inimitable, and the reunion of these two greats is a “must see and hear.”
Over the years, Brian’s bands have featured Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, Julie Driscoll and even Jimi Hendrix. Brian has recorded with great luminaries as The Yardbirds, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Eric Burdon & Jimmy Paige. Rave reviews and demands for return engagements follow this artist wherever he goes.http://brianauger.com/

“Brian Auger is one of the best B-3 artists I have ever heard in my life. His technique is awesome and the amount of energy he generates is unparalleled and relentless. He is a tremendous talent with a wonderfully warm and compassionate personality, a combination that is hard to beat. He deserves all the accolades.” – Herbie Hancock, May 1995

“Those who remain oblivious to the obvious delights of Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express do so at their own risk!” – Beastie Boys, June 1995
