An Evening With Family – Reunion Show 2013

News blast from chappo.com

Legendary British prog-rock giants, FAMILY have announced they will reunite in 2013.

For one night only, Roger Chapman, John ‘Poli’ Palmer, Rob Townsend and Jim Cregan will headline an exclusive reunion performance at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday 2nd February 2013.

Their first show together in over four decades, FAMILY will bring back the nostalgic sights and sounds of folk, psychedelia, acid, jazz fusion and rock’n’roll that made them one of the most pioneering bands of the underground progressive scene in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Having played prestigious London venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The 100 Club and The Marquee, this one-off show is set to be something special, playing songs from a career spanning, seven studio albums.

“This is something that I’ve considered, and been constantly asked about, over the years. It’s always been a question of timing. 2013 marks the 40th year since we did our last show – and we ain’t getting any younger!” – Roger Chapman

Chapman/Whitney Streetwalkers long awaited CD reissue

Long awaited release of the tracks that comprised the first Chapman / Whitney “Streetwalkers” album in 1974. Taken from the original master tapes and re-edited by Roger Chapman this is a much demanded release. The tracks appear in the original order that the band wished to appear on the record but was changed by “management”. The CD features sleeve notes by Pete Feenstra, lyrics and rare pictures of Roger Chapman and Charlie Whitney.
