Son of Dave, aka Benjamin Darvill, pays a visit to the Cambridge Junction on 23 May at 8pm for an evening of great covers, done his way (that’s with a dose of gutsy blues, tough harmonica and impressive beatboxing, in case you were wondering).
Canadian born but residing in the UK, Darvill was previously a member of Grammy Award winning folk rock band Crash Test Dummies, creators of kooky 90s mega hit MMM MMM MMM MMM. Since going solo under the moniker Son of Dave, he’s racked up seven studio albums – the most recent of which, Explosive Hits, features a mad collection of cover tunes which span a century.
Daft Punk, Lead Belly, AC/DC and Rudimental all get the energetic Son of Dave treatment on the album, and that’s exactly the kind of barmy, bluesified melting pot of great tunes you can expect from his show. Tickets cost £13.50.
