NEXT GIG

4th November

The Giles Robson Band

World leading blues harmonica player Giles Robson and his first class band have been experiencing an awesome 2016. The incredible buzz around their dirty sweat down the walls twelve bar road house blues saw them signed to Dutch Major Label V2 Records making them made label mates with such household names as Mumford & Sons, Adele, Simply Red and Skunk Anansie.

His debut album, "For those Who Need The Blues" recorded completely live in one session captured the spontaneous dirty and rough blues sound that is gaining Robson and the band rave reviews and stellar audience reactions and the ear of V2 Records.

Add to that being spotted by the BBC and booked to headline the Saturday night on the first ever BBC Introducing stage at the massive mainstream Latitude festival then you'll see that this is THE blues band to watch in 2016/17

Think The Red Devils and the Fabulous Thunderbirds mixed with Little Walter and Muddy Waters. This is world class blues in its most dirty, primal, emotional and groovy state. It's a sound that never fails to rock the house and knock out an audience.
As Robson says "This is the sound of a whole band working together as a team. The magic of this sound is how it works together so well and almost telepathic connection between all of the band members and the fact that this band's rhythm section understands how to REALLY groove."
