I kept on looking for a way, to take me through the night; I couldn’t get it right, I couldn’t get it right…

THE CLIMAX BLUES BAND of today is the same quality as when they formed in the late ’60s and achieved huge selling albums through the ’80s such as FM / Live and Gold Plated, the 1976 hit single Couldn’t Get It Right (from Gold Plated) and I Love You in 1981. That reputation carried through until the tragic death of founder member Colin Cooper in 2008.

Colin’s death could have meant the end but his desire was for the band to continue creating that fine blues blend since the beginning and they took that challenge with relish.

The Climax flag has been held high with tremendous passion and style, and now there is a spring in their step, taking the band forward throughout UK/Europe, a ‘seamless’ transition carrying on the unique Climax sound and a band having a great time making music….

2012 vocalist Graham Dee and sax Player Chris “Beebe” Aldridge complete the new line up.

Graham Dee was recruited in 2012 to front the band. With his own distinctive style and a pedigree on the blues scene which included performing with The Blues Collective, The Red Lemons and joining ex-Feelgoods in The Lone Sharks as well as session vocals and voice coaching, at the same time Chris ‘Beebe’ Aldridge took on the saxophone duties with a fresh and exciting dynamic sound, both adding their own dimensions to the musicians that have carried the flag for Climax as a unit for over 20 years, in Les’s case over 30 years, and George for nearly 40 years!

Security Alert – The Official Live Bootleg was recorded live at Leek Arts Festival and released in 2015 on ATA. The album was mixed by Roy Wood (Wizzard, ELO, solo).

A brand new album of original songs is being recorded and will be released in September 2018.

They got it right…
