The Voodoo Sheiks + Special Guests - Storm Warning
Voodoo Sheiks + Storm Warning
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!
The Voodoo Sheiks are joined by very special guests, Storm Warning. They are lauded by the UK blues press as one of the top contemporary blues rock bands in the UK. They make blues standards their own and superbly craft original blues songs.
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
Ex Mick Ralphs Band vocalist Son Maxwell and guitarist Bob Moore, lead the band backed by Ian Salisbury on keys, Derek White (Larry Miller band) on bass and ex Mick Clarke band drummer Russ Chaney. Storm Warning have recorded four CDs, all receiving critical acclaim and their tracks have been played on radio station across the world including BBC Radio 2 for whom they also recorded a live session which was broadcast on the Paul Jones blues programme.
“This was s a great night with a truly classy blues band - one of the classiest blues bands in the UK. They create their own vibe, use the ambiance of the room, the space in the songs and the lyrical feeling to create something all of their own. Top quality guys.” Pete Feenstra – promoter and reviewer
