The nine-date tour promises to be a dynamic, turn-back-the-clocks, two-hour live extravaganza, paying homage to his tenure in the MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple – one of music history’s most seminal and influential rock and roll groups.  All tickets are priced £27.50, except London at £30.00.

We’re also touring the show throughout South America in April, and festivals throughout the summer. By the time we tour the UK in October, we’ll be on fire.”

As well as Glenn on lead vocals and bass guitar, the touring band also features Soren Anderson (guitar), Jesper Bo Hansen (keyboards) and new drummer for the project Fernando Escobedo (drums).

Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018

Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018

Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018. Rainbreakers are back to set Skegness alight once again. This year they headline Saturday in Jaks; the stage organised by Blues Matters. The venue that is dark, moody hot had the venue that has seen amazing nights we all still talk about the night Larry Miller set Jaks ablaze with his music. The anticipation was high amongst the many who have heard The Rainbreakers play live before. Into the mix and those who just came to see what the fuss was about or party and drink into Sunday morning.

Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018The band was on fire full of energy as the band from Shrewsbury blended the music to create a music fuelled party atmosphere. Having spoken to members of the audience many just popped in for five minutes and now determined to stay to the end. This was no surprise to me as having been captivated by the sound since I first heard and reviewed in 2015 Blood Not Brass. 

What is Rainbreakers sound? What makes then stand-out on a crowded circuit? They have stretched the blues from the Mississippi Delta, up to Chicago across to the sun-drenched West Coast and sound drenched in the seventies full of soul. Musicians ready to conquer the here and now.  A quartet mix power with subtlety. A rhythm section drummer Sam Edwards and bassist Peter Adams lay down the scaffolding of their brand of Blues-rock. Guitar work from Charlie Richards bending the notes as vocals are delivered by Ben Edwards. The unit is tight and the live sound electric.

Cameo of Rainbreakers Live Performance Jaks Skegness 2018Tonight in Jaks they came set-up and allowed their music to conquer. That is exactly what they did. Saturday in Jaks was a happy place to be as they played music that made you get up and dance, smile and be happy with tracks from the second EP; Rise Up. This is what Jaks as we all rose up as one and enjoyed the moments they played a storming set, to be remembered long after Jaks falls silent. The Rainbreakers were the last Saturday night headliners to play the small stage in Jaks.

King King released their fourth studio album “Exile & Grace” in October 2017 via Manhaton Records. The album features the band’s singles (She Don’t) Gimme No Lovin’ and Long Time Running which have been big hits on Planet Rock radio in the UK.

Hot on the heels of King King’s January 2018 UK tour – including their biggest London show at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire to date – Britain’s No. 1 rock blues band announce their April – June 2018 UK Tour including shows at HRH Blues in Sheffield and the Rock & Blues Festival in Newport.

 

Special Guest Steve Hill is an act not to be missed –  When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. The truest definition of a one-Never In Exile Full Of Grace King King Back Touringman band; Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and with a drumstick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach. An overnight sensation 20 years in the making, Steve Hill is an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with.

Throughout his career, Hill has shared the stage with many of his musical heroes including Ray Charles, BB King, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Jeff Beck and many others. Over the course of nine albums, he’s explored everything from hard rock, country, and stoner rock to folk music while always incorporating the essence of his first love, the blues.

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join Provogue

Kriss Barras Band Exciting News as they Join ProvogueMascot Label Group are thrilled to announce that the Kris Barras Band have joined the Provogue label to sit at home amongst some of the finest modern blues icons such as Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Sonny Landreth, Gary Hoey and more.

The Devonshire born blues-rock guitar-slinger Kris Barras has built a fearsome live reputation across Europe through solid touring and the release of 2016 stellar full-length debut ‘Lucky 13’ which has seen him battle his way to the front of the British blues-rock pack. Bluesdoodles loved the album we said. “With its eleven tracks Lucky 13 rattles and rolls the blues with a twirl and a swirl of rhythms… Kris hits the right pace, the guitar is smooth as polished wood with a patina of deep emotions to keep you interested”. Read the rest of the review HERE

2017 saw him step up and step out to play in front of huge crowds at RAWA Blues Festival (Poland) and an incredible performance at Ramblin’ Man Fair (UK), but these crowds hold no fear for the former Mixed Martial Artist who has fought across the world including in Thailand, Las Vegas and in Singapore, where he fought in front of 8000 people, winning 14 out of 17 professional fights.

Inspired by his father at the early age of six-years-old, Kris was already making an appearance on stage before turning ten. He has since gone on to spend more than twenty years thrilling audiences throughout the globe playing live.

Inspired by Gary Moore and Jimi Hendrix his music and fighting went hand in hand and disillusioned by the music industry as a young man, the offers for professional fights came thick and fast. “People used to think I was crazy to be fighting in cages, risking damage to my hands,” he says. “Truth is though, I always enjoyed it and found that the fighting world offered me more opportunities than the music industry. I got to fight in front of 8000 people in Asia, I would’ve much rather have played to them instead of getting punched in the face.”

Talking about joining Provogue Kris says; “I’m really excited to be working with Provogue/Mascot. Their track record of putting out the best in Blues/Rock is second to none. To be part of a roster alongside the likes of Joe Bonamassa and Kenny Wayne Shepherd is a dream come true. It’s been a long road getting to this point in my career and I feel with Mascot on my side, it’s just getting started”
