About January Blues Festival

January Blues Festival are proud to present The Animals, with original founding member John Steel performing the band’s greatest hits including House of the Rising Sun, Don’t Le Me Be Misunderstood, We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place, Baby Let Me Take You Home, Bring It On Home To Me, It’s My Life and many more which helped make The Animals one of the biggest groups in the world during the 1960’s.

The Animals were the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles with the now multi-million selling and legendary anthem, House of the Rising Sun. The band subsequently achieved over twenty global Top Ten hit records, many of which gained the #1 slot in various parts of the world. In Britain alone, the band had no less than twelve chart entries.

Bruce Springsteen revealed on stage in the USA that it was The Animals, not The Beatles or The Rolling Stones who were his favourite British Invasion band. "Their singles were the first full-blown class-consciousness I'd ever heard". After playing a short burst of We Gotta Get Out of This Place, Springsteen then confessed: "That's every song I've ever written; Born to Run, Born in The USA, all of them".
