Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight

Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight with their brand of rocking and rolling Music. Before the Rebels took to the stage the night opened with Sonia Leigh. Sonia’s band whilst she is over from Nashville Tennessee are The Healers with Katy Hurt on backing vocals. What an amazing voice is the first thing you notice about diminutive Sonia. Full of textured gravel swirling around melodic tones delivering songs full of emotional intent. Sonia is a rocked up Mary Gauthier. The set was shimmering with powerful intent as country rocked and rolled as her vocals were supported by the percussive rhythmic shaping and guitar playing from Steve, Ace & Gab who are the Healers. With her new album Mad Hatter we were treated to Jack Is Back, wow this is a band that wants you to have fun as the set included My Name is Mary, Rocking In The Moonlight and Shelter. Sonia and the band surrounding her tonight played music that warmed the venue and left a lasting impression. We all agreed the set was far too short as they closed with Alabama Band full of Southern Rock and energy. We were ready and waiting to shout Up The Rebels as the main band of the night set foot on a stage in Bristol for the second time. Short break and our wishes were granted, first time playing on a boat for the Rebels the third time this year Bluesdoodles were excited to once again be listening to Broken Witt Rebels. Tonight they hit the ground running with Low from their self-titled debut album. The crowd need no encouragement from Danny Core to join in they were soon singing along confirming this as a firm favourite when played live & loud. The set flowed warming the atmosphere, with Breathless one of the new numbers on the album, Bang Bang and Howlin. We were now deep in the zone that Broken Witt Rebels create when playing live, they have a special sound blending influences as this Midlands based band meld Southern Rock with country with the drive of Brit-Pop pulled together by the talented and ebullient energy of front man Danny Core whose vocals connect to the audience. His vocals, groan, cry, beseech and take you to a special place as the tonal depth sends shivers of pure delight down your spine. This is a quartet of musicians who understand the intricacies of the sound they create and love playing the music. Danny’s vocals will always gain your attention but without the soaring driving platform of the other musicians it would be a voice and nothing more. Tonight James Tranter’s backing vocals were smooth and his guitar playing clever with hooks that pulled Danny’s vocals in, and riffs that hit home with the audience that showed the clever use of his pedal board. Then the rhythm section never to be ignored when the Rebels play their brand of Rock as Luke Davis on bass and James Dudley’s drumming combine to give every number a percussive deeper growling force. With fabulous backing vocals from James and Luke the choruses build and connect the verses and how the audience loved to add their voice. With two new numbers inspired and reflecting on their recent US tour opening for Whiskey Myers. Fearless, this reflects the playing of a band that is fearless in their intention for the whole venue to have fun. We rocked long and hard and like the music the boat stayed steady in its delivery. Followed by Give It Up, from tonight’s performance, that is definitely not a consideration for a band on this form. The musicianship was top-notch. The current single now was played live, however good the music is on a radio, when played live it takes on a new deeper energy and that was the case tonight with Wait for You. Now let’s have some drama, as they continued putting a Spell on You a highlight that glimmered brightly in a set of seventeen songs that were glorious from the first note to the last note. An acoustic guitar was picked up by James, as he and Danny stepped off the stage as Danny explained ‘going to try something different’. Turn On me, performed pure acoustic in the heart of the crowd who were spellbound. For me once again the centre-piece of the night was Georgia Pine which they nailed tonight live and will always be that special song, the one that caught my attention when I heard the EP Georgia Pine for the first time. Every time you hear this young band play they just keep getting better, songs you know like the closing numbers Snake Eyes and Guns prove that. Always full of rebelling attitude now they have been shaped and honed into a pressure pack of controlled energy that bursts out of the blocks as the energy builds and grows to a thunderous climax. From the performance tonight and the length of the queue at the Merch desk Broken Witt Rebels are welcome to return to Bristol anytime and we say make that soon, your music rocked our boat tonight.Broken Witt Rebels Rocking Thekla Boat Tonight

UKBlues Awards Events Master of Ceremony Announced

UKBlues Awards Events Master of Ceremony Announced

UKBlues Awards Events Master of Ceremony Announced

The team at UKBlues Federation who are running the inaugural UKBlues Awards 2018 alluded in last weeks announcement that there was exciting news to follow.  They are thrilled and very honoured to announce that Ian Siegal has agreed to take on the role of Master of Ceremonies at the event.  The UKBlues Awards presentation event taking place at Worthing Pier Southern Pavilion on Saturday 19th May 2018, tickets for which will be available from 1st January 2018.

UKBlues Awards Events Master of Ceremony AnnouncedIan is considered by many to be the most compelling British blues artiste since the great names of the sixties.

Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.” In a career that spans more than 25 years he has taken his music to 45 countries and presided over a trophy haul that includes 14 Awards in various categories and two Mojo Blues Albums of The Year not to mention three US Blues Music Awards nominations – an unprecedented nod for a non-American.

And yet, for all the dizzying achievements in the rear-view mirror, the most important part of any Siegal chronology is always the next show, the next song and the next great record.

Talking about his involvement with the event Ian said: “I’m delighted to be asked to help the UKBlues Federation present the first edition of the UK Blues Awards. This is an important step towards making the awards an internationally recognised standard of excellence. I will see you in Worthing in May to celebrate the UK’s diverse blues talents.”

We are very pleased that Ian has agreed to come on board and his involvement can only help to make this event all the more special and one not to miss.

Keeping you up-to-date about the awards.

All applications will be treated as confidential and all members of the nomination panel are required to keep their involvement in the panel confidential.



VOTING PROCESS AUDIT

Finally, as you will see from the Eligibility criteria and Rules that have been drafted to apply to the UKBlues Awards – www.ukbluesawards.com/rules – the UKBlues Federation has gone to great lengths to make sure the voting process for the Awards is robust, open, secure and having integrity.

It has already been advised that the process will be overseen and audited by a completely independent external scrutineer and we are very pleased to announce that a partner in KPMG, a major international professional service company and one of the Big Four auditors, has agreed to take on this role.

The UKBlues Federation would like to thank the partner concerned, whose identity must, for obvious reasons, remain confidential, for agreeing to take on this role.

The UKBlues Federation is a pan-UK organisation that has been established to promote and support Blues in and from the United Kingdom in all its forms and styles.

The UKBlues Federation has created a not for profit federation of musicians, organisations, associations, groups, venues, companies, individuals and any other interested parties within the UK who already work to support, promote and encourage blues of all sorts within the UK, to work together to achieve UKBlues Federation’s aims.

The UKBlues Federation incorporates the British Blues Archive, the foremost historical resource for blues in the UK.

The UKBlues Federation has recently announced the UKBlues Awards which will recognise excellence across the genre in the UK.
