ROCK AND BLUES CLUB DATES
MOON AFTER SUNDOWN
A diverse set of covers with some surprises
With the powerhouse voice of Amy Wilson out front this band are building up a real following and have some good gigs behind them including a great support for Pat McManus.
Classic rock anthems, modern indie and rocked-up pop hits as well as a few obscure numbers to keep the music buffs guessing...
Amy Wilson - Lead vocals Andy Clutton - Drums, percussion and backing vocals Dean Wiffin - Guitar and backing vocals Sean Malone - Bass guitar Steve Potter - Guitar
Coming down from Buxton way up in the Peak District
High energy - straight between the eyes
Honest and dirty Rhythm and Blues.
How many times do you see a band looking bored, un-interested, just playing for themselves, going through the motions? NOT THIS LOT !!! This is a brand of Rhythm and Booze, coming into its own.
The “Train” is based high in the Peak District, in and around wildest Buxton. This is Rhythm and Blues as we like it - no frills - red hot ‘n raw - high energy - straight between the eyes - honest and dirty. They’ve gone down a storm at clubs and festivals including two of the biggest (Burnley and Colne) and all over the country. Try ‘em. CLIMB ABOARD AND BOOGIE !!!
On guitar we have Gabby, can you ignore his pulsating lead licks? Give him a fag, a vodka ‘n’ see him cook.
Blowing like a hurricane, fuelled by best bitter Dennis on manic harmonica you won’t see better than this.
Next up the South Wales connection, fronting the band on vocals is Reg, snarling and stumbling, who knows what goes on behind those shades. Over 30 years of rhythm and blues has taken its toll.
Holding it all together on drums is Joker. Cool calm and steady lots of gigs under this man’s belt, Guinness too.
Last but not least from darkest Lancashire, new man Howard on bass, laying down a rock solid foundation, cool dresser, likes his whiskey, steeped in the Blues, tends to lose his shades after gigs.
The kick-ass rock blues and boogie power trio with
some of the best original material around...
Always welcome at the Elme the Dave Jackson Band have had a busy time since their last visit with some very prestigous bookings gathering more and more fans along the way.
The London based Dave Jackson Band are a kick-ass rock blues power trio. Dave Jackson is a former New Orleans based pianist turned "Born again blues man" whose early years were spent in Africa, jamming with local musicians on a home-made guitar. The first time Dave met the blues was in the form of a 'Buddy Guy' live concert. He knew then that the blues was not just a collection of notes. It was a place in your soul and to ever sing the blues for real, you had to find your own place.
After years of searching and paying his dues, playing in bars and clubs around the world, from New Orleans to Cape Town, Dave has done just that.
His guitar playing has been described as 'mesmerising'; 'inspired'; 'spontaneous'; 'adventurous'; 'luscious'; 'rippling'; 'intense'; 'soaring'; 'fiery' and 'fluid'. And with a voice to match, whether he is singing his 'signature tune', 'Born Again Bluesman', (nominated for a British Blues Award), or a 'Robert Johnson' classic, this isas real as it gets. Every performance is unique, every solo, a new road to travel. Witness a true blues man in action.
The new album has ten hard hitting original compositions with powerful vocals and rippling guitar work and as one reviewer wrote, "There's an inherent rawness and constant emphasis on the spontaneous that would make the likes of 'Hound dog Taylor' smile and contemporary outfits like 'The Black Keys' and 'The White Stripes' look over their shoulder”.
With Janet Jackson on bass and Reg Patten on drums it's no wonder the DJB is in such demand in their home town and across the country.
This is power rock blues at it's best with some first rate original material that you can download for free here to give you a taste of what's to come.
This is a great venue which regularly brings top notch bands to an unfashionable corner of the country. Gary Blue - Star Blues
