THE JACK FLETCHER BAND+ THE VINYL REPRISAL

The indie-rock four piece from Wolverhampton are what can only be described as real – with their stripped back guitar music, midlands twang and their live for the moment attitude.

After the split of his former band The Town, lead vocalist Jack Fletcher began his solo career before meeting fellow band members Tom Robinson (drummer) and Henry Bradley (bass) on a music technology course at university. From this friendship and the introduction of George Hadley (lead guitar), The Jack Fletcher Band was formed – combining influences from mod bands such as The Jam & The Who with the rock & roll sounds of Led Zeppelin & Jimi Hendrix.

To date these ‘Black Country lads’ have played numerous festivals and venues including Lakefest (supporting the likes of Primal Scream, The Coral, Cast and Star Sailor), Party in the Pines Festival, where they supported Twisted Wheel frontman Johnny Brown who has since played alongside them at their own headlining gig; and Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms where they supported Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Craddock.

Plus support from THE VINYL REPRISAL

The Vinyl Reprisal are a high-energy indie/rock band from the West Midlands, who released their debut EP Graffiti in May 2017.

Formed in 2015, the Birmingham-based four-piece started out as a covers band and earned plaudits around the region for dynamic, hit-packed sets featuring songs by the likes of Oasis, The Kinks and The Clash. The band soon began to establish their own sound, with those Britpop and punk influences serving as strong reference points when writing and recording their own material.

2017 began with triumphant appearances at the Actress & Bishop and the O2 Academy 3, as well as a support slot with acclaimed Birmingham band Little Liam at the Brown Lion in the city’s Jewellery Quarter.

Their performance at the Brown Lion earned praise from Ocean Colour Scene drummer Oscar Harrison, who was in the audience.

The five-track Graffiti EP – recorded and produced by the band – captures the energy, attitude and catchy choruses that have been hallmarks of their live set.
