“Magnificent!” – Mark Hamill

Blues Harvest have built up a cult following through their diverse song choices from the world of movies, TV and a few guilty pleasures along the way.
With set highlights including music from Star Wars, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Guardians of the Galaxy and many more, Blues Harvest is the perfect band to celebrate the sci-fi, comics and fantasy genres.
Fronted by comic book illustrator Nick Brokenshire (Dark Horse / 2000AD / IDW) this geek-rock five piece have regularly been joined on stage by performers from all areas of the Star Wars franchise, including Taylor Gray (Star Wars Rebels), David W Collins (The Force Awakens / Rogue One), Stephen Costantino (Return of the Jedi), Jerome Blake (The Phantom Menace) and Laurie Goode (A New Hope).
In 2016 the band performed alongside Ash at Star Wars Celebration’s ‘#CANTINA’ at the Brooklyn Bowl, O2 London. Recently they have caught the attention of Luke Skywalker himself, as actor Mark Hamill declared one of their recent songs (a cover of The Kinks’ classic ‘Waterloo Sunset’, reworked as ‘Tatooine Sunset’) as “Magnificent! The original Kinks classic has always moved me to tears and I now declare THIS as my official, unofficial Luke theme song! The lyrics, performance and John Williams’ theme fade-out: PERFECTION.”
