DOUBLE HEADLINE !!!
The bands are back together after the success of their co-headline show in 2018.
Celebrating the launch of Andrew Robert Eustace Band’s 2nd album, ‘Different Sides’ set for release in early 2019.
With support from Rigid Soul.
After an outstanding summer 2018 touring the festivals of Montrose Music, Butefest, and the renowned Belladrum, the ‘Andrew Robert Eustace Band’ are returned to their hometown in August to deliver a headline show playing hits from their outstanding debut album ‘Stories’ but they also showcased new material from their upcoming second album due to be released in early 2019.
Frontman Andrew Robert Eustace (known for his soulful lyrics and powerful voice) invites you along to experience tales of hard blues. Alternatively, swampy and gritty; hard and angry; melodic and heart-rending – these stories take their inspiration from delta, country, and roots. Guaranteed to offer something to the casual music-lover or the connoisseur alike.
GERRY JABLONSKI & THE ELECTRIC BAND UK TOUR SUMMER 2019 …
Gerry Jablonski and The Electric Band are are high energy outfit from Scotland that blend blues roots with influences of classic rock. According to Classic Rock magazine, “Jablonski has the blues under his fingernails” and last year they certainly created quite a stir at the Colne Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival!
Anyone who has never seen Gerry and The Electric Band on stage is truly missing an incredible energetic, visually exciting and ear pleasing performance. With a past appearance at Jools Hollands Jamhouse for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, being voted Best Solo Act at two festivals and a presence at numerous other festivals across the UK and Europe, this is a band not to miss !
The guitar maestro from across the Northern border was influenced by trail blazing masters like Jimmy Page, Johnny Winter, John Martyn, Bowie and Jeff Beck as well as the highest calibre of blues/rock outfits which include Led Zeppelin, Cream and The Who.
It’s easy to understand why several years ago his unique style earned him the title ‘The Zany Genius’. When Dave (The Bishop) Scot from Blues Matters was reviewing his music he said, “A new genre will have to be created in record shops for Gerry’s music, he fits in to none of the genres currently available”.
The band came together in its current form only a few years ago when drummer Dave Innis returned to Aberdeen after a spell in London and began looking round for new musical projects. He called up Gerry, harmonica player Peter Narojczyk and bass man Grigor Leslie and before they knew it The Electric Band was born. They have played together now for over three years and state that nothing will stop them on their way to the top.
The band write all their music together and have gone out of their way to make it clear, that there are no egos in the band, they are all in it for the music.
If ever four people were meant to play together, then this is it, so best hold on to your seats when Gerry Jablonski & The Electric Band take the stage !
Rigid Soul are a Glasgow based band with an eclectic blues-rock sound. Although the blues is one of the bands heaviest influences, their original music features elements from a broad range of musical genres including jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and Latin music.
Since their debut EP ‘Head In The Clouds’ was self-released in March 2018, the band has underwent a number of line up changes with core members Kyle Hood (guitar and vocals) and Lewis Ross (drums) remaining constant. In late 2018, Liam Brown (bass) completed the official line up, allowing the band to focus on building a live repertoire and writing new original material. Some of the bands highlight shows to date include support slots with Zal Cleminson of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Kyle Falconer of The View and Praying Mantis, as well as monthly residency gigs at Glasgow venue The Howlin’ Wolf.
