Roxy Magic - Celebrating the music of Roxy Music and Brian Ferry
In November 1970, Brian Ferry was sacked from his job as a ceramics teacher in a grils' school due to his habit of having impromptu record listening sessions instead of teaching. Turning his back on education, he advertised for a keyboard player to collaborate with him on what was his true passion and Roxy Music was born.
When Virginia Plain hit the airwavesin 1972 no-one knew what category to put Roxy Music in. It wasn't just that the song title was mentioned until the last words of the song - when the public saw Roxy on Top of the Pops, they couldn't believe their eyes!
From Avalon to Jealus Guy, hit after hit followed on classic album after classic album.
Roxy Music were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.
Roxy Magic is a true celebration of the music and style that underpinned a generation. To say it is a tribute is not worthy of the experience. You will be transported back through time with the Kings of Cool - Slick back that hair and get ready to Do The Strand!
