Lights Out By Nine
LIGHTS OUT BY NINE are a Scottish band with a pedigree.
Steeped in soul, funk and rhythm and blues, and driven by Hammond, horns and harmonies, the sound is raw and authentic, whether playing their own original songs, or paying homage to the sounds of New Orleans, Memphis or Muscle Shoals.
10 support slots with the Average White Band in recent years and appearances with numerous other names including a recent support with Dr Feelgood at King Tuts in 2019 are testament to the level of achievement of this band.
In September 2017 at the iconic King Tuts, the band were joined on stage by Average White Band founding member Hamish Stuart to work through some of his back catalogue, which is further testament to a band who were also delighted to have made their Celtic Connections debut this time last year.
With numerous live broadcasts sessions including on BBC Radio 2 from the legendary Maida Vale Studios in London, and 2 top 5 American radio chart albums on BB King’s Bluesville at XM Radio, you start to get the flavour of a very accomplished outfit.
Two further recent STV appearances and follow on airplay on BBC Radio 2 / BBC Radio 6 Music for the band’s new EP brought LOBN to more and more peoples’ attention.
Their latest album Here & Now was released in 2019 gaining coverage on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6 Music airplay !
