“Superbly talented, groovy and blue, The Deptford Rivieras are the pulsating sound of swinging London”- Jools Holland
The ‘Deptford Riviera’ is the name given to the southern shore-line of the River Thames between Rotherhithe and Deptford Creek. Hailing from that zone in South East London, The Deptford Rivieras are a trio playing funky bluesy jazzy soul and ska in the style of '60’s blue note legends.
Phil Veacock (Tenor Saxophone) is best known as a long-time member, main arranger and musical director of Jools Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. .
He has played with and arranged for an unbelievable roster of musical legends from every genre. A quick look at some of the names shows Soul legends such as Al Green, Barry white, George Benson and with pop legends Elton John, Paul Macartney & Van Morrison. “
Gary Baldwin...the British Grand Master of the Hammond Organ”. He was a member of the seminal Tommy Chase Band who led the 90’s Jazz revival. He too has a long list of legendary artists with whom he has worked and collaborated among them Fats Domino, Doris Troy, Van Morrison, Jeff Beck, Lulu, Bryan Adams & Joss Stone.
Alan Savage (Drums) has had a long career in both the pop and jazz/blues fields backing such names as Joe Jackson, Alison Moyet, Olivia Newton-John and Freddie Mercury together with Bluesmen like Otis Grand and Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges. Currently, Alan is the driving-force behind OoBopSh’Bam one of the UK’s leading jump-jive/rock n roll outfits.
