LAURENCE JONES

LAURENCE JONES

Tuesday 25th April

British blues artist Laurence Jones is often labelled “the future of the blues,” but this has to be factually incorrect, doesn’t it? He’s HERE and NOW - socking it to audiences around the world. Blowin’ the roof off every time. Several major awards. Selling serious numbers of his four solo albums. His fourth “Take Me High” just released - produced by legendary producer Mike Vernon. Does that sound like someone working at being “something” and “somebody” in the future? He’s not practicing. It’s not a rehearsal. He’s DEADLY serious and damn good at what he does. Hailed as “one to watch” as a teenager by the blues media, concert/festival bookers, blues fans and various guitar stars alike, young Laurence really has come of age. The blues cub has become a man with a plan. Turning heads and making jaws drop with his take-no-prisoners, incendiary live set and his stunning records. Laurence and his crack band - Laurence Jones on vocals and guitars, Roger Inniss on bass and Phil Wilson on drums/backing vocals - put the power into “power trio” - with their modern day blues rock with an edge. He sings, he plays and he writes – a triple threat – and he does so like a veteran of three times his age. You can tell this is far more than a job by the Cheshire cat grin glued to his face during every gig. LJ LIVES to play that guitar. He LOVES to play that guitar. He just HAS to play that guitar………

Ladies of the Blues

Ladies of the Blues

Monday 01st May

Bristol based Elles Bailey hasn't been dubbed a 'Blues Princess' for no reason.  This young Bristolian cuts right against the grain in so many ways, that’s probably why she’s such a rapidly rising star in the British music scene. Her husky toned, lived-in voice sounds like she drinks Jack Daniels neat from the bottle and has a 60-a-day habit, was caused by a serious illness when she was three causing her throat to almost close up!    Nowadays Elles and her band (made up of some of Bristol’s brightest and finest) are currently tearing up the UK and European scene, scoring raves reviews at every place they play from Bristol to Berlin, with energy packed hi-octane performances. That trademark gravelly voice providing the lead.    Elles had a busy 2015, releasing her ‘Who am I to me EP’ and touring the UK and Europe in January, February and March then playing the summer festival circuit, and doing a mini tour in October. 2016 is set to be even busier -  She has currently just finished an extensive tour of Europe taking  the south of the UK, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Austria, finishing on home town soil with a slot at The Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival. ||  Gabriella Jones is a singer songwriter from Birmingham UK. She has played the Wireless Festival and Hard Rock Calling Festivals in Hyde Park along with the Isle of Wight Festival. The blues/rock singer has already supported massive acts like Bon Jovi and Slash at festivals and played at the LG Forum Live before acts such as Beyonce, Black Sabbath and Rihanna.||  Amy Khonsari - after graduating Amy performed professionally for three years in numerous productions here in the UK and overseas.  She always held a strong desire to inspire and innovate through her songwriting and now felt compelled to take the next step – which led her to fully pursue a career as a solo artist.

Dan Patlansky

Dan Patlansky

Friday 05th May

The word “legend” is loaded with meaning – especially when one thinks of Blues-legends. It conjures up images of seasoned older players that have been touched with a rare gift, and whose talent has been salted through the onslaught of years in the music business.   To achieve legend-status as a Blues-musician at the age of 30 is almost unheard of. Enter Dan Patlansky – an artist who shares the muse that touched Hendrix, Zeppelin and Stevie Ray Vaughan. What Dan Patlansky can do with a six-string Fender Stratocaster at the age of 30, most critically acclaimed guitarists will never quite achieve in a lifetime.   Dan Patlansky is a conglomerate of charisma, charm and musical genius - and all of this comes wrapped up in an unassuming, startlingly attractive package that bespeaks his Judeo-Spanish heritage. And yet, he doesn’t seem to realise the extent of his tactile appeal – both on stage and in person. Humility suits him well and is as much an extension of his being as his Fender. There are no airs and graces here – just sincerity and an incredible musical talent.

Devon Allman

Devon Allman

Tuesday 09th May

No one can bring the house down quite like Devon Allman. With his soaring guitar licks, unique vocals that straddle the border between blues, rock and country, songs that touch upon the pulse of zen positivity and real deal life and love situations, Allman can rock hard, rouse up a crowd and become your best friend all within the span of a two hour concert. There are not many musicians out there that can do all this and not get lost in their own ego but Allman does it effortlessly. Allman is a believer in the power of real music. With only guitars, via himself and Bobby Schneck Jr, some bass and drums courtesy of Steve Duerst and Anthony Nanney, the music he brought to the Lava Cantina stage in Baton Rouge last week was passionate and full of crowd-connecting hymns. With a set filled up mostly by his own tunes, it proves that not all non-superstar bands have to fall upon covers to meat up their concerts to please the crowd in front of them. What this young man had to offer was good enough to have them cheering, dancing, singing and calling for more. “You have to always bring it,” Allman told me during his first interview in Glide in 2010. “Even if ten people came, they paid their money, they came to get lost from their world for a couple of hours and you always give it. Always. It’s always about the people.”   With support from the excellent 'Curse of Lomo'

The band’s relentlessly entertaining tunes take inspiration from the rare-groove style funk, and boogaloo funk of the 60s and 70s and, the band is, without a doubt, one of the most important jazz-pop crossover outfits in British live musical history today.

He, along with Nashville singer-songwriter Kevin Montgomery will be stopping by The Tunnels in Bristol with his 7 piece band featuring Americana favorites, Fats Kaplan and Kristi Rose. Often introduced during Springsteen’s mammoth E Street Band shows as the “Tennessee Terror,” Tallent was born in Detroit and grew up in New Jersey. The “Tennessee Terror” moniker supposedly came about following a drive through the Volunteer State. Tallent has an album to go along with his tour. The rockabilly-packed Break Time is available on vinyl and CD as well as via digital downloads. Break Time just might be an apt description of Tallent’s 2017 situation. A founding member of E Street, Tallent will be part of Springsteen’s Australia / New Zealand tour beginning next week and running through February. He will begin his tour of the UK/Ireland on May 25th. Montgomery’s mom sang with Elvis and Dad wrote songs like “Heartbeat” for Buddy Holly, and was his first musical partner.

Justin Townes Earl

Justin Townes Earl

Monday 26th June

Born in Nashville, Justin Townes Earle grew up as the son of country-rock iconoclast Steve Earle, who gave him his middle name in honour of the great Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Quickly coming into his own as a songwriter and performer, he displayed a natural talent for deeply revealing lyrics that reflected his often-harsh life experiences with a musical approach that effortlessly integrated elements of blues, folk and country. Since launching his recording career, he has established a reputation as a singular leading light in the Americana music community.  His new album, Kids in the Street, raises the creative and personal stakes to deliver a deeply soulful set that's both emotionally riveting and effortlessly uplifting.

An immense talent, and one of the nicest people around, Sam has a heart the size of his native state and he has rightly earned the devoted following and critical acclaim that he enjoys.

Sam Outlaw and Band

Monday 24th July

Sam Outlaw burst onto the scene with his Ry Cooder produced debut album, Angelino, which had critics battling to find new superlatives to describe a perfect piece of twenty first century California country rock. Having friends in high places may help, but his follow up, Tenderheart, proves beyond doubt that Sam Outlaw’s extraordinary talent is all his own. Vividly portraying a dark streak in the State of eternal sunshine, the record is a tour de force and confirms the opinion made by the LA times that he’s “a contender to be the biggest country star L.A. has produced since Dwight Yoakam.” Here with his full band, this promises to be an unmissable show.

Sunday 01st October

Slaid Cleaves' online biography says that he “Grew up in Maine. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Makes records. Travels around. Tries to be good.” The simplicity of the statement disguises the fact that he's one of the most highly respected and talented songwriters in modern America, with a string of terrific releases and a devoted fanbase. Performing songs that can be funny, insightful, sensitive and hard-hitting, sometimes all at the same time, he’s one of the few contemporary musicians who can be fairly compared to old masters like Woody Guthrie. A truly mesmerising performer. “A master craftsman on the order of Guy Clark and John Prine” – Austin Chronicle. “A magical performance from one of the best songwriters in the game” – No Depression

Said The Maiden + support

Thursday 09th November

Said The Maiden are Jess Distill, Hannah Elizabeth and Kathy Pilkinton, three friends who discovered a mutual love of folk music when they reunited several years after spending their school years together in St. Albans, Hertfordshire.  From tentatively performing a few songs at their local Redbourn Folk club in 2012 and later being asked to appear at one of the club's guest nights, the group soon secured support and headline slots at folk clubs and festivals around the country which in turn have led to opportunities to support many fantastic artists including The Fisherman's Friends, Jim Moray, Megson, Martin Carthy, Sam Carter, Hannah James and Sam Sweeney and Clannad.  They were also honoured to join legendary fiddler Dave Swarbrick on a successful UK solo tour in the spring of 2014, and released their debut album 'A Curious Tale' in June of the same year.

Flash - A Tribute to Queen

Flash - A Tribute to Queen

Friday 08th December

FLASH – A Tribute to QUEEN; has been created and is performed with love and admiration for the late great Freddie Mercury and the musical legacy of Queen. A desire in each member to replicate what made queen so special and to bring back some of the live magic that made Queen the international super-group it is today.   Soon to enter their 45th year, Queen have amassed a huge back catalogue of hit records, there’s just so many to chose from and it’s hard work constructing a show that captures Queen’s creative history in such a short amount of stage time but we guarantee the show to be a none stop jukebox of the very best of Queen, hit after hit, anthem after anthem, with audience participation at a high from the very start.   All Flash band members have been creatively and technically inspired by Queen, each taking satisfaction and pride in producing this ultimate tribute to Queen each playing replica equipment adding that little extra sound characteristic and all performed in authentic costumes making it a show to remember.
