One of the UK’s finest Rhythm & Blues Bands, Nine below Zero, formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song. In 1980 they signed to A&M Records and released the seminal “Live at the Marquee” album. By the end of that year they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon.
