Animals and Friends
Featuring original Animals member John Steel and bandmates Danny Handley, Roberto Ruiz, and Barney Williams, this show promises a night of enduring R&B classics that have grown legendary over 50 years, including ‘House of the Rising Sun’ and ‘We Gotta Get Out of This Place.’ Come hear the timeless songs that remind us why The Animals still retain great respect decades later.

Chantel McGregor
Hailing from Yorkshire, Chantel McGregor has garnered international acclaim for her prodigious blues rock guitar skills and crystalline vocals, winning awards and touring successfully from a young age while earning a first class honors degree in Popular Music. Lauded by major media, Chantel continues pioneering her way to the top of the male-dominated blues rock scene through sheer musical talent and an unrelenting drive to connect with her growing fanbase.

Brave Rival
Brave Rival is the dynamite blues rock machine from Portsmouth, featuring the powerful harmonized vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick combined with Ed “The Shred” Clarke’s dramatic guitar solos and a propulsive engine room rhythm section that melds rock, soul, and other influences into a unique yet familiar sound; coming off a breakout 2022 with an acclaimed debut album, relentless touring, and award nominations, this rising act tipped by Joe Bonamassa recently scored five 2023 UK Blues Award nominations including Band of the Year, their hybrid sound and fiery performances cementing Brave Rival as a new british blues rock force to be reckoned with.

Catfish are an award-winning UK blues rock powerhouse featuring multi-talented musicians like guitarist Matt Long and his father Paul Long that have quickly established themselves through high energy shows and successful tours across Europe and the USA. Blending blistering guitar licks and keyboard melodies with smooth vocals, Catfish deliver British blues with raw power and contagious excitement across multiple albums and EPs that showcase why they are a blues rock band on the rise.

Gerry Jablonski Band
Gerry Jablonski and the Electric Band have a high-octane, swaggering stage presence and gritty yet melodic trademark sound that melds genres and captivates audiences, earning them critical praise like “the best band you never heard of” and accolades like 2018 UK Blues Act of the Year. With ten years bringing their infectious, dangerous blues rock energy to standing-room-only shows across Europe including sellouts for Jazz Scotland, national TV appearances, five albums, a new single produced by a Grammy winner, and a new live album, Gerry Jablonski Band simply bring the fire every time.

Half Moon Panic
Half Moon Panic are an explosive blues rock power trio from Kent that pushes boundaries with their heavy, sometimes punk-edged sound, drawing comparisons to Blue Oyster Cult and Dire Straits; formed in 2019, they quickly made their mark with their critically acclaimed debut “Welcome to the Small Time” and high energy festival performances supporting legends like Dr. Feelgood. This rapidly rising band brings an intense yet melodic twist to blues rock that has captured attention and earned them slots at major UK festivals, so check out their music and catch one of their uncompromising live shows.
