THE HARRY HORNSEY REVUE

The Harry Hornsey Revue is led by the tour de force combination of singer and guitarist Harry Hornsey and multi-instrumentalist Alfie Bernardi.

With the backing of a first class rhythm section they are bound to get your toes tappin' with their soulful, exciting and heartfelt interpretation of the greatest American export, namely the BLUES!
