The Voodoo Sheiks + Special Guests - The Wilbur Project
Voodoo Sheiks + The Wilbur Project
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
The Voodoo Sheiks are truly a high energy rhythm & blues band firmly based in the Dr. Feelgood & Nine Below Zero camp with elements of American Blues. A mixture of original material and carefully selected covers form the basis of their albums and every live show!
Their latest album, ‘Unstoppable’, contains twelve tracks penned by the band themselves and follows on from their previous releases, ‘Borrowed & New’ (2012) and ‘Voodification’ (2015)
Special guests, The Wilbur Project come storming out of the deepest depths of Rutland armed with a full set of original material and some ‘not so obvious’ covers.
In 2016 The Voodoo Sheiks were nominated for a British Blues Award in the ‘Emerging Artist’ category.
Vibrant, is an excellent word to describe the cranked up and cranked out hugely entertaining Voodoo Sheiks. They carve out some serious classic sounding R&B. There is no time to draw breath with these guys as they deliver pile driving guitar, barrelling along on clipped lead runs, provided by Adrian Thomas, searing harmonica & rasped vocals from ‘Slowblow’ Dave Magson and a rocking rhythm section consisting of Andy Pullin on Bass and Spencer Blackledge on drums.
"The Voodoo Sheiks roared out of the blocks with some searing guitar and hard edged vocals along with cutting blues harp breaks"- Blues Matters Magazine
"The Voodoo Sheiks album 'Voodification' not only celebrates the sheer beauty of the continued mix of Rhythm & Blues that the previous album 'Borrowed & New' gave out in waves but also the intrigue that the band places before their fans in the new album" - Liverpool Sound & Vision
The Wilbur Project come storming out of the deepest depths of Rutland armed with a full set of original material and some ‘not so obvious’ covers.
Much of their original material can be found on the debut album, ‘Straight Down The Line’ released in March 2019.
TWP style is fashioned on the fabulous ‘pub rock’ days of the likes of Dr. Feelgood. Make no mistake, they will grab your attention right from the start and administer a much needed shot of ‘Rutland Rhythm ‘n’ Blues’.
