Vocalist Junior Blackwood is a singer with real soul who harks back to times gone by, but who also places the band firmly in the world of music today. Choppy guitars, driving rhythms, groovy organ and a solid brass section ensure this band deliver classics that you may or may not be familiar with.

Plus support from HARRY & THE HOWLERS

Compared to the likes of Elvis Presley and Rosetta Tharpe, Harry’s first EP Blowin’ Up Your Jukebox made quite an impression on both the UK and US rockabilly and country scene. With the rumble rhythms of country, the pace of rockabilly and in your face personality, Harry & the Howlers are not to be missed.
