A blues-rock singer-songwriter is heading to the historic 100 Club in Fitzrovia next month.
Félix Rabin, a Brittany-raised, Switzerland-based 23 year old guitarist, will be stopping off in London as part of his UK tour on October 29.
Inspired by musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Pink Floyd, his style embodies these influences with inventive riffs, moody melodies and guitar solos.
In 2018 Félix was special guest on the Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour and played to about 10,000 music fans at 28 venues across the UK with his band.
His adventure with Wishbone Ash meant it was not long before Félix was back in the UK.
Felix said: “In 2016, I came to London to play my first shows in England. One in Shoreditch and one in Camden at the Spiritual Bar.
For a year, I played in London as much as I could, and finally, after one year of gigging around the city, I got the chance to open a night at the legendary 100 Club in Oxford Street.
“This led to more and more gigs in England, my first festivals this summer, and then, in 2018, my first big tour in the UK, opening as special guest on Wishbone Ash XLIX UK Tour.
“This was a very exciting moment for me. As most of the bands I have listened to come from England and USA, it is thrilling to play in front of audiences who have grown up with some of these bands and who were influenced by the musical culture of the country itself. It was an incredible feeling to get back in some cities and to hear people coming to us saying they discovered us during our tour with Wishbone Ash and absolutely wanted to see us again.
