Artists

Announced for 2018 so far...:


  • The earliest incarnations of the John Verity Band supported legends such as Hendrix, Mountain, Canned Heat and Janis Joplin, and he was quickly signed up as the replacement for Argent's Russ Ballard after Ballard quit the band in 1972. Later John spent a few years producing, playing guitar or providing backing vocals for various acts including Motorhead, Ringo Starr, Russ Ballard, Brian Connolly, John Parr, BowWowWow and The Searchers amongst others.

  • At only 25, a young prodigy, songwriter, guitarist playing with a stunning maturity and voice. He'll take you on a musical journey where the vintage elegance of the sixties and its detonating energy do wonders. Alexis Evans trains delivers an original repertoire in performances full of joy and good Rhythm'n'Blues vibrations. A healthy cocktail to discover as soon as possible, this sextet will continue to surprise many!

  • With one foot firmly in the past, the South Wales-based four-piece are looking to the future too. The Liam Ward Band are known for originals that push blues boundaries, bringing you some of the freshest British blues on offer. One of the UK’s most revered harmonica players, vocalist and harp player Liam Ward is a winner of the National Harmonica League Player of the Year. The rest of the band comprises stalwarts of the British blues scene. On guitar, respected jazzman Matt Jones (The Square Pegs, Django Chutney), Pembrokeshire favourite Martin Hill on bass (Empty Pockets, Final Demand), and sought-after drum ace Gareth Davies (Only Us, The Distributors).

  • Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene in the UK, they power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style. Primarily, they are influenced by 1940’s and 1950’s R&B. In particular, Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown. However, they have adopted a harder and more aggressive approach, synonymous with modern blues artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Jools Holland and Mike Henderson which helps create their own high energy sound. Over the last decade The Revolutionaires have established themselves on the UK and European Rockin’ circuit, as well as the Blues scene.

  • In 2011 Chris was awarded the accolade of being one of the top undiscovered guitarists worldwide by the acclaimed international music photographer Robert Knight; who in partnership with guitar manufacturer Fender was searching the globe to find the next great guitarist. In 2013, Chris’ online popularity began to soar, after gaining millions of hits on YouTube he quickly established himself as Twitter’s most followed blues guitarist worldwide, such interest encouraged Chris to self- produce and release his first single entitled: ‘Lipstick On Her Cigar’. On the 20th November the single hit No.1 on the iTunes & Amazon Blues charts, after just one day of sales. In 2014, huge public demand for live performances led Chris to form his own 4-piece group: ‘The Chris King Robinson Band’ which quickly gained recognition as one of the most exciting live bands in the country.

  • Dale's passion for New Orleans music saw him perform his debut theatre gig as a soloist, concentrating on the New Orleans piano styles. The success of that performance led to further dates and Dale has not looked back since. Dale's ambition has always been to play the music of New Orleans, which can be anything from a classically influenced minuet, a latin rhumba, a back o' town junker blues to a frenzied boogie woogie.

  • Just 25 years old, Greg is already an accomplished and highly respected musician with a track record including lengthy spells in the legendary Two Tone/Ska Band The Selecter and in the West End. Greg has his own special, fiery, impassioned brand of Rhythm & Blues, putting his own stamp on the music of the greats who inspire him, reminding people of all ages of why this music once dominated the world. While Greg is well known for his livewire on-stage performances, he could not make the impact he does without his stunning, hand-picked band of crack musicians who help him rock any house he appears in. With a first album of original music lined up for a 2017 release, why not be among the first to hear of Greg's new songs?
