Formed by Rod Stewart’s guitarist and collaborative songwriter, Jim Cregan, Cregan & Co. celebrate from 1977 to the present day with an evening of Rod’s hit songs with very special guest vocalist Ben Mills.
Former Family and Cockney Rebel guitarist Jim joined Rod Stewart’s band in 1977 and became his musical director, co-producer and co-writer. Cregan co-penned many hits with Stewart, including ‘Passion’, ‘Tonight I’m Yours (Don’t Hurt Me)’, and ‘Forever Young’. Jim is a world class guitarist and has written for many rock and pop stars (Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Art Garfunkel, Steve Harley, Katie Melua & most recently Lulu) and his co-write ‘Brighton Beach’ on Rod Stewart’s last album ‘Time’ was released as a single and continues to have masses of airplay on BBC radio.
Ben Mills is an accomplished singer/songwriter in his own right and with this great band he plays a mean guitar too He’s having a blast singing Rod Stewart’s back catalogue with the guy who actually wrote the songs … putting his own stamp on the hits that everyone knows and loves….
Come and listen to the stories and share in the music that has formed the soundtrack to many of our lives for more than 30 years!
Drummer Harry James is renowned for his work with legendary rock band Thunder as well as drumming with Steve Harley, Jon Lordand Glenn Hughes. Other members of the band are bass player Pat Davey (Tom Robinson Band) and pianist Sam Tanner (Alexander O’Neil, Nate James & Duffy).
“If you can’t afford my tickets go see these guys…They’re just as good and half the price !!” – Rod Stewart
“Thursday’s headliners really took the bull by the horns; Jim Cregan (I can’t believe he is 67!) was up there smiling enjoying himself, smashing out those classic Rod Stewart songs he co-wrote, played on and produced. Heads up goes to Ben Mills on vocals, third place finalist on X-Factor just shows what they know about music, this man is the real deal what a set of lungs! I wasn’t around to see Rod in his heyday (and I am 42!) but this I think is as close as I am going to get!” – Cambridge Rock Fest review
