Thursday 22 February BIG STEAM

These guys have every right to be called true originals.  They were at the forefront of the British R&B revolution in the early sixties and can trace their musical lineage through that period to today via an impressive individual and collective history.  Paul, Rob and Geoff were members of the legendary band, The Others, who also happened to be the third Crawdaddy Club house band following The Stones and The Yardbirds, whilst Tim was guitarist with that mighty power trio, Smile, whose other members were Brian May and Roger Taylor who, of course went on to form Queen.  This illustrious pedigree resulted in the formation and evolution of a truly original band whose output firmly based in their roots promises an exciting set of classics, standards and punchy original material.

'Petit occupies a stunning middle ground between the fire of Freddie King, the instinct of Jimmy Page and the soul of Eric Clapton' Classic Rock Magazine. Stephen Dale Petit is a London-based Blues guitarist who has played alongside guitar legends such as Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, and even B.B. King! Moving to London from California when he was barely 20, he's lived through and survived the rock 'n' roll lifestyle of drugs and alcohol, composing and financing his much acclaimed debut album Guitararama whilst busking on the London Underground.  He has since released 4 albums and toured extensively around UK and Europe plus giving masterclass university lectures on blues music and widespread radio airplay. In 2016, he double-headlined with blues-rock titan, Walter Trout.  Rolling Stone Mick Taylor commented: "He's got his own unique take on contemporary blues....I've heard him do a great live version of Freddie King's "Have You Ever Loved a Woman?". It was wonderful.  All his albums are very interesting, he deserves the recognition".

Thursday 17 May THE KAST-OFF KINKS

The iconic British rock band, THE KINKS, is often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.  The Kast-Off Kinks is NOT A TRIBUTE BAND! The band contains 3 actual Members of THE KINKS.  Original drummer, Mick Avory, who joined The Kinks (at that time still called The Ravens) in 1964, who is still regarded to this day as the backbone of the original Kinks, is joined by John Dalton, bassist with The Kinks from 1969 until the late '70's, and keyboard player, Ian Gibbons, who was with The Kinks for 17 years and still plays and tours with Ray Davies.  By fans, Ian is regarded as the best keyboard player of The Kinks.  The fourth member and only non-Kink is Dave Clarke (ex Noel Redding Band), taking the place of the Davies brothers. http://kastoffkinks.co.uk.  Almost every other ex-Kink has guested with The Kast-Off Kinks, including Ray Davies.

Since their last visit to the Eel Pie Club in 2014, the Cadillac Kings have gone from strength to strength.  October 2016 saw the release of their 5th album "The Secret of my Success" which quickly ended up on so many playlists that by December it was voted one of the top 3 blues cds of the year by the IBBA (along with Kaz Hawkins and Joe Bonamassa).

Throughout 2017, the cd continued to make inroads into US radio and to the astonishment of the band one of the album tracks reached No. 1 in Cashbox Magazine's Blues and Boogie Chart in September 2017, and stayed there for 4 weeks, holding off acts such as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Primer, Coco Montoya, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, Samantha Fish etc.

2018 sees the band celebrating its 18th birthday in the company of relative new 'boy' - the multi-talented Tim Penn (ex Kevin Coyne, Eclection, Gordon Smith Band) on piano,  accordion and vocals, alongside ace guitarist Mal Barclay, singer/songwriter Mike Thomas and the top notch rhythm section of double bassist Paul Cuff and drummer Roy Webber.

"Entertaining, authentic and infectious - The Cadillac Kings' high energy R&B is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale!" (Blues in Britain).

Thursday 14 June SLIM CHANCE

Slim Chance has its origin in the early 70's, formed by the legendary and brilliant songwriter, Ronnie Lane, who had been a mainstay of both the Small Faces and The Faces.

Slim Chance are a brilliant live band, whose members are all fine singers, muscians and showmen, playing an amazing array of instruments.  The band is known for its pioneering use of fiddles, mandolin and accordion.  Recently, the Huffington Post described the band as 'the real deal', an 'organic multifacted collective' 'raising the roof'.

Since the release of the film, The Passing Show, the 2004 concert at the Albert Hall with Pete Townshend and Paul Weller, and more recently, the re-release of classic Slim Chance material by Island/Universal Records, there has been a resurgence of interest in Ronnie Lane's music and the band, Slim Chance.

The line-up now features original members, Charlie Hart, Steve Simpson, Steve Bingham, plus guests including Geraint Watkins, Billy Nicholls, John Lingwood, Des Horsfall, Benny Gallagher and more.  Their set includes a host of classic Ronnie Lane songs including Ooh La La, Debris, The Poacher and How Come, as well as original tracks from their latest album "On The Move" which has received rave reviews in all the top music press.

"...Split Whiskers embrace excellence when playing live, the show is a complete experience - you will leave after feeling refreshed and invigorated by their blues..." BBC Radio.

Their superb musicianship, along with their infectious humour on stage, promises a great evening's entertainment.  Fronted by Gilby Fat Slim Fletcher on vocals & blues harp and Johnny Magic Boy Wright on vocals and acoustic, resonator & electric guitars, they are joined by Matt Big Willie Willshaw on keys, Alex the Danger Angel Machell on bass and Tony Hi Hat Hill on drums.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rI0tMetYiaY

Geno Washington is still the ultimate 60s soul man, enjoying cult status in soul, blues and RnB scenes, mainly due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer.
A contemporary of Georgie Fame, The Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix (all of whom were his support acts back in the day), Geno is as electrifying today as ever, a force of nature and a genuine joy to behold.
In 1980 'Oh Geno!' was a massive UK Number 1 hit for Dexys Midnight Runners.  Vocalist Kevin Roland based the song on his memories of Geno's gigs, when clubland used to join in the chants of Geno! Geno! Geno!
Geno Washington & The Yo Yos features members of the super tight Ram Jam Band, playing a blistering set of pared down street soul, RnB and house rockin' blues.

Thursday 6 September THE PRETTY THINGS - final tour and FINAL ACOUSTIC SHOW EVER!

The Pretty Things have been at the heart of the UK Rhythm & Blues Scene for over 50 years.  2018 will be their final tour and The Eel Pie Club will be hosting their FINAL ACOUSTIC SHOW EVER, featuring original vocalist, Phil May, and original guitarist, Dick Taylor who will be joined by Sam Brothers on acoustic slide guitar, backing vocals and harp, plus maybe a guest or two.
These legendary 'bad boys of rock' created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the late 60s and early 70s.  In 2011 they were awarded the Hero Award at the Mojo Honours and have been name checked over the years by an array of artists ranging from The Clash, David Bowie & Aerosmith through to The Libertines and Kasabian.  The Pretty Things' first 3 singles, 'Rosalyn', 'Don't Bring Me Down' and 'Honey I Need' all made the charts. The band then moved from Rhythm and Blues through psychedalia, their famous rock opera, S.F. Sorrow, and heavy metal - then back to the music that made them famous - Rhythm and Blues.

Plus support by Sam Brothers.
