Want to know a little more about who's playing?
Dale Storr band: From his passion for New Orleans music, Dale developed from a soloist, focussing on the New Orleans piano style, adding new dimensions to his music, bringing vocals, drums, bass and horns into his work working with some of the best musicians from the British Blues scene. The Dale Storr band has gone from strength, to musical strength, with Dale ambitiously covering all areas of New Orleans music from the classic minuet, latin rhumba beats, to boogie woogie, bringing together a diverse and exciting performance.
Hummingbirds Blues Band: With Bob on the Sax, John on the Bass and Vocals, Andy on the drums and Stu on as the Blues Axman, the Hummingbirds Blues Band are one of the most exciting live Blues bands hailing from the Steel City itself.
Natchez Burning: Named after the Blues legend Chester 'Howlin' Wolf' Burnett's 1956 record, 'The Natchez Burning' is based on a tragic story of The Rhythm Club in Mississippi catching alight. Sheffield's five piece Blues band brings the musical genre to life on harmonicas, two guitars and upright bass and drums.
Billy Martin Jnr: Described as the "delta blues man of Sheffield", Billy performs original material in the style of the greatest blues men. He boasts a remarkable voice, and great storytelling. Richard Hawley, Sheffield singer/songwriter and 2007 Mercury Music Award nominee said, "Billy Martin Jnr is one of the great undiscovered Sheffield talents - uncompromising brilliance!"
Jack of Harps and the Dealers: A long established musician, Jack has played to audiences across the country, playing odes to the likes of legends like Otis Redding, Sam n Dave and Ben E King. Exposedmagazine.co.uk, said, "Along with his band The Dealers, he's gained a formidable reputation in various city establishments as a top vocalist, guitarist and harmonica player".
Bluestown: Alongside Steve Cosgrove on vocals, Andy Richardson, on drums and Dave Jones, on bass, came together to form Bluestown who play across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.
