Slim Chance
£12.00adv £15.00door
When Ronnie Lane embarked on the last stage of his career - which had already included the Small Faces and The Faces - he wrote some of his strongest songs and recorded several remarkable albums with his own band, Slim Chance.

Slim Chance is still very much in action, and boasts a great line-up consisting of three original members, Steve Bingham, Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson, joined by three top class musicians: Brendan O’Neill on drums, Billy Nicholls (ex Who) acoustic guitar and vocals, and Bob Dylan’s favourite, the renowned Geraint Watkins on keys and vocals.

40 years on from when Ronnie was at the height of his creative powers, the band is enjoying playing together in the spirit that Ronnie championed so magnificently. As well as fine versions of songs such as ‘How Come’, ‘The Poacher’, ‘Ooh la la’ and ‘Debris’, the band is now performing songs from its latest album, ‘New Cross Road’, which is now available on the band’s own label, Fishpool Records.

All in all the band delivers a barnstorming show that ‘digs deep into the roots of rock ‘n’ roll’’, appeals to all ages, and has aptly been described as ‘balm for the soul and music from the heart’! Catch it while you can!

An Evening with David David Wyatt and Band

It is difficult to categorise David and his music, so think somewhere between Jeff Buckley-esque soaring, beautiful, intimately crafted songs, happy feel-good numbers harping back to the jazz era of the 1920s and pounding epics that will stick in your head forever.

His shows are always unique, especially when it comes to audience-band banter, but you are also served a visual treat,with a likeness somewhere between a Victorian gentleman and Captain Jack Sparrow.

It’s always wise when going to a David Wyatt gig to expect the unexpected, the only constant is high-quality entertainment and a memorable evening.

The Robert J Hunter Band
Band Links:

Island born Robert J. Hunter combines his gruff and powerful voice with the wild thud of overdriven blues guitar.
His powerful debut album, ’Songs for the Weary’, received blues chart success and critical acclaim and the single release, ‘Demons’, reached number one in the UK iTunes Blues Chart.
‘Before the Dawn’ followed late 2015 showing that Robert had matured and developed as a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. Robert then released a solo acoustic album, ‘Where I’m From’ on independent label, Spiritual Records.

Robert’s new album and fourth studio release, ‘The Robert J Hunter Band’ was released February 2018 and features the iTunes number one singles, ‘Wait Your Turn’ and ‘Suzy’. This self-titled LP captures The Robert J Hunter Band in their most organic and raw form. Recorded live, this is an honest record, not hidden behind the makeup of over production. Listen here: http://smarturl.it/RJHB
In 2017 Robert was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) with his powerful ballad, ‘Preacher’ which was chosen from 16,000 entries.

Following his set at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, The Robert J Hunter Band were chosen as the fifth and final act to compete in the UK Blues Challenge at Liverpool‘s legendary, Cavern Club.

This is a road worn, dirty blues band that’s been honed to super tight perfection by sheer hard work and volume of shows.
