MICHAEL MESSER & CHAZ JANKEL BAND

Sunday 10th November Main Stage - De Valence Pavilion

We are pleased to announce the Michael Messer & Chaz Jankel Band will be one of the main stage performers on the Sunday night of our festival.

Michael Messer is a virtuoso slide guitarist, singer, songwriter and roots & Blues innovator.

Johnny Cash was a fan of Michael Messer’s music and wrote the liner notes for his 1993 album Rhythm Oil, a rare honour shared only with Bob Dylan.

Messer’s obsessive appetite for knowledge of his art is virtually unrivalled. His stunning slide guitar playing and superb vocals ooze authenticity and integrity. His use of turntables in the Second Mind Band marked him as one of the trailblazers of the noughties Blues sound.

Michael Messer’s latest project is an album (Mostly We Drive, released January 2024) he has recorded with the renowned songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Chaz Jankel. Chaz is most widely known as member of and co-writer of hit records with Ian Dury & The Blockheads.

Michael and Chaz will be performing at Tenby with their regular rhythm section.
