The Trevor Burton Band
Trevor Burton was born in Aston, Birmingham, and was a founding member of the sixties chart topping band The Move. He was with them from 1966 and, when he left in 1969 he stayed down south with his close friend Steve Winwood; Steve had just formed the band Traffic. Later Trevor got in touch with Steve Gibbons with a view to forming a new band. Together with Denny Laine, formerly with the Moody Blues, and Allen White from The Plastic Ono Band, they formed the band called Balls. After the split with Balls in 1971, Trevor spent the next few years as one of the top session musicians with Island Records. At the request of Raymond Froggatt, Trevor returned to his hometown of Birmingham where he worked with Ray until 1976.
Trevor teamed up once again with his close friend Steve Gibbons to enjoy chart success and top 10 hits with the Steve Gibbons Band. For the next seven years he toured the world with Steve. He left in 1983 to form his own band playing his unique style of blues. They started performing twice weekly at the Red Lion, Sparkbrook, Birmingham with a line up including sax player Steve Ajao. In 1985 the band recorded an album entitled Double Zero.
He teamed up with Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin as one of the Journeymen Musicians. Then he joined The Big Town Playboys touring the UK and Europe, performed shows with Noel Reading and spent 9 months on the road with Dexies Midnight Runners.
As if this isn't enough he has also played with Jimi Hendrix and also appears on one of his albums! Now Trevor still gets the buzz from playing his kind of music to a receptive audience. See him to live and enjoy the moment, you won't be disappointed.
