ATOMIC ROOSTER

A very special treat at The Eel Pie Club tonight!! - The newly re-formed Atomic Rooster featuring 2 original members, Peter French on vocals and Steve 'Boltz' Bolton on guitar.
This band which re-formed last year, with the full blessing of Vincent Crane's widow, has been kicking up a storm at festivals and shows across the UK and receiving stunning reviews:
"Pete French sounded amazing from the start.  One song in to Atomic Rooster's set and it was hard to imagine a better vocalist all weekend...It's no secret that Steve Bolton is a master axeman and he led the band through a stunning version of Black Snake before unleashing an instrumental in honour of Vincent Crane" Colin Davies.

Completing the line-up are Shug Millage (bass), Bo Walsh (drums) and Adrian Gautrey (organ/keys). 

The band will be performing album favourites and the hit singles "Tomorrow Night" and "Devils Answer".

Visiting from New York, this will be Dona Oxford's only and final UK gig for the remainder of 2018.
Dona Oxford is an extraordinary, soulful and passionate singer, songwriter and keyboardist who's Old School, Soul vocals and her love of Rock 'n' Roll piano infuses to create a unique sound many have compared to "Gladys Knight meets The Rolling Stones". 
As a keyboardist, Dona has played with many Rock and Blues legends including (to name a few) Keith Richards, Van Morrison, Roger Daltry, Albert Lee, Buddy Guy, Bob Weir, Chris Farlowe, Andy Fairweather Low, Mike Berry, Shakin' Stevens, and her idol, the former Chuck Berry sideman and Father or Rock 'n' Roll Piano, Mr. Johnnie Johnson!

Dona's high energy, funky, groovy, gritty and raucous sound will get the crowd on their feet and dancing in the aisles.  Don't miss the artist that Golden Globe Nominee, Ewan McGreggor said was "The next big thing in music!"

GENO WASHINGTON & THE YO YOS

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.

Opening by guitarist/vocalist Peter Hammerton (formerly with The Others).

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.

SARI SCHORR & THE ENGINE ROOM

A jaw-dropping voice and a live show that erupts like a volcano have catapulted Sari Schorr into the spotlight as one of the hottest new blues-rock singers today.  The native New Yorker is taking the blues world by storm, and with a voice that jolted legendary blues producer Mike Vernon (think Fleetwood Mac, Clapton, and Bowie) out of retiremnt, it's not hard to see why.  It's no wonder that Blues Matters said, "The future of blues is in good hands.  Sari is a gift to all of us from the Blues Gods."
Several years of touring the world with Joe Louis Walker and Popa Chubby granted Schorr notoriety and induction to the New York Blues Hall of Fame.  She heads her own electrifying band, The Engine Room, featuring legendary blues guitarist Innes Sibun.
