the PHIL BRODIE BAND
(formed by 3 Bitter Suite members)
Sheffield based, this outfit [formed late 2001] consists of the very respected bass guitarist Gerry Scanlan, Neil Wathey on drums, plus guitar virtuoso Phil Brodie. Phil is noted as being one of the top guitarists of his style, "…his guitar playing was indistinguishable from Gary Moore himself " ….quote from BluesMatters, He plays his guitars with such power, yet with so much passion.. .It is very exciting that these 3 talented professional musicians have come together again forming this "Power Blues Trio" to play tribute to Gary Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Peter Green, John Mayall, Albert King, BB King and other rock/swing/blues greats. (Also Deep Purple, Free, AC/DC, Bad Company, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen and other important classics for the rockier Bitter Suite venues)

Prisoner: Barry Marshall, Stu Middleton, Bubbles, Phil.
