The Wildhearts have remained at the forefront of the British rock scene. From their classic debut album ‘Earth Vs’ (voted number one album of the year in Kerrang! back in 1993, and number 20 in the best rock albums of all time in a Kerrang! Special in 2006), through to now with the release of ‘Renaissance Men’, their first full-length studio album in 10 years, their creative output and legendary live shows have been second to none.
Big Country perform classic hits and live favourites including Harvest Home – Fields of Fire – In A Big Country – Chance – Wonderland – Look Away – The Teacher.
The band broke massively worldwide with the release of the album’s classic singles ‘Fields Of Fire’, ‘Chance’ and signature song ‘In A Big Country’, which went on to become massive worldwide hits, selling over 2 million copies and driving ‘The Crossing’ to 3 prestigious Grammy nominations in the USA.
Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s Dr. Feelgood remains one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world. The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the U.K. charts.
Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator – which gave the group their first gold record.
From Grimsby, The Brew has appeared three times on Germany’s Prestigious Rockpalast show and has toured with ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and played alongside legends like Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, Chickenfoot and Joe Satriani!
They have seen their albums chart across Europe in Germany, Poland, Spain and in 2014 they were the only UK band to play at the Woodstock festival in Poland to 250,000 people. After six fine and varied studio albums and zero line-up changes (Tim Smith – bass, Kurtis Smith – drums & Jason Barwick guitar/vocals), present Art Of Persuasion, their seventh masterpiece released in October 2018. While proudly displaying the band’s influences – from Led Zeppelin to Wolfmother, the record easily avoids schlocky retro clichés and is exactly in line with their critically acclaimed live shows.
