The stunningly situated, banjo pickin' summer festival of Rhythm 'n' Blues, returns for its fourth year this summer 1st – 3rd June and we’ve lined up some fantastic additions to our lineup.
DANNY & THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD - BIG SANDY & HIS FLY-RITE BOYS
In 2015, Oklahoma’s JD McPherson released his sophomore full-length album, the Mark Neil-produced, Let The Good Times Roll, was described by The Guardian Observer as ‘The Saviour Rock n Roll Deserves.’ With his primal energy and strong melodies, it’s really no surprise on reflection that one of his biggest supporters is Josh Homme, who asked JD to open for Queens of the Stone Age at their Halloween show in L.A.
Danny & The Champions of the World join us for the first time and we couldn’t be happier. Their latest offering, What Kind of Love, is sure to light up the summer and is packed with the rock n roll energy that we love so much at Red Rooster.
Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys play that upbeat, soulful music pulled from honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, rock & roll, rhythm & blues, soul and doo-wop. Their latest album, What A Dream It's Been, on Cow Island Music, is a collection of the band's favourite original numbers - all acoustic, reinterpreted with fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation. The band has toured constantly for the past two decades, playing over 3,000 live shows, which include performances at the Grand Ole Opry, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, George Jones and Morrissey.
They’ll be joining a prestigious list of acts already announced.. This is how we’re shaping up Roosters!
