Mick McConnell & "Blue Thunder"
Mick is currently writing and rehearsing with his new band "Blue Thunder"
Mick always had a plan to perform his solo songs live, but his commitments with Smokie the last few years, made this pretty much impossible. However; due to the fact that Smokie now have certain periods off for downtime and re-charging the batteries, it allows Mick to throw some commitment to his Blues project, " Blue Thunder" and they'll start to perform in the autumn 2023 with more dates added in the arly part of 2024
Just a reminder! …….. Mick's solo album "Under My Skin" got to number 13 in the European Blues Chart, so It's a venture he takes very seriously!
Mick also had centre spread interviews in the Blues in Britain, and various Euro Blues Scene magazines.
Fantastic album reviews and Worldwide airplay got people talking!
He's even fortunate enough to have joined the “One Billion Club” for a PLAYLIST that featured the Track “Holdin On”
He stated recently "My band are nice guys, and boy can they groove"
