Saturday 6th April 2019
From New Jersey
The BILLY WALTON Band

The third visit from what we have dubbed our house band.

We feel hand on heart they are the best band we have ever had to the club and that is a very bold statement to make.

 
Blues soul rock n roll all blended into a very heady mixture.
 
As a result we have sold over a hundred tickets for this show and only have just over 60 left to sell. So, if you have not got your tickets or you know a friend has not got theirs yet, get them now to avoid disappointment.

THEY WILL SELL OUT!

Saturday 4th May
From New York 
SHEMEKIA COPELAND
Special Support from John Amor | Doors - 7.45pm


We feel this is by far the biggest artist we have ever had to the club and this will be one special show.

While only in her early 30s, two-time GRAMMY® nominee Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues.

She’s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama.

Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown by her daughter, Cookie, on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and given the honor of the new “Queen of the Blues” by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.

Copeland’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Her music comes from deep within her soul and from the streets where she grew up, surrounded by the everyday sounds of the city – street performers, gospel singers, blasting radios, bands in local parks and so much more.
 
Just recently been awarded blues album of the year from MOJO magazine for 2018 for Americas Child we are so lucky to get her to an intimate club date.
 
Opening is Devizes own Jon Amor promoting his critically album Colour in the Sky this has 5 star quality written all over it.
 
This will be a gig to savour in the memory for many a long year.
