INTERNATIONAL cult Bluesman on a mission, Son of Dave, is the next big act to play the Three Wise Monkeys in Colchester.

The one-man harmonica and beat-box genius, aka Canadian Benjamin Darvill, beats his own path, turning rhythm and blues upside down and gathering a huge international army of devoted fans from all walks of life in the process.

After supporting the likes of Iggy and The Stooges, Grace Jones, and the Yardbirds, while also appearing on Later with Jools Holland, he plays upstairs at the High Street venue next Friday, June 15.

With support to be announced, entry is £8, available on doors, open at 8pm.
