The Moody Blues’ John Lodge

John Lodge is singer-songwriter and bass guitarist for the iconic rock band, The Moody Blues. Writer and vocalist of such mega Moody Blues hits “Ride My See-Saw”, “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band)”, “Isn’t Life Strange”, “Gemini Dream”, “Steppin in a Slide Zone” and many many more. Lodge has been performing and recording with The Moody Blues for more than five decades, selling in excess of 70 million albums, and also enjoys a successful solo career, doing what he loves, performing and playing music.

John’s particular passion is to keep all the Moody Blues music alive, the music that he describes as the ‘soundtrack of his life’, and he, Jon Davison, and his 10,000 Light Years Band lovingly recreate these iconic songs in all their symphonic brilliance.

As one critic put it, If you love The Moody Blues music, then you really need to checkout John live. He and the band put on a great show! John’s electrifying show performs these classic songs with a new energy, whilst always remaining true to the Moody’s roots and the original sound. They bring a feeling of nostalgia to the room, and the audience to their feet, with songs that are as relevant today as they were when written.

The show also features a tribute to all his bandmates, including a very special recording by Graeme Edge of his poem ‘Late Lament’, and Jon Davison of YES joins him for ‘Nights in White Satin’ and ‘Tuesday Afternoon’.

John is currently touring and performing the iconic album ‘Days of Future Passed’ in its entirety, with dates planned in the USA for July 2024, and he has also recorded a new version of the album that is out now, ‘Days of Future Passed, My Sojourn’.

Lodge has been voted one of the “10 most influential bass players on the planet,” and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including ASCAP (American Society of Composers and Publishers), and Ivor Novello Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Music. John was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2019 was given a star in his hometown ‘Walk of Fame’. In 2018, John and the Moody Blues were inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’, and in 2019 John was given the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Prog Awards.
