In previous years, Chantel stepped out in the pro-musician world and her stunning live performances demonstrated that she had the ability to perform rock for the new age, played by a musician born with an effortless virtuosity. Since then, she has built a loyal and growing fan base who follow her every move.

If you measure an artist’s prospects by the company they keep, then Chantel has been moving in the right direction. Early in her career, Chantel was invited to perform with Joe Bonamassa, on two of his UK tours.

Over the last few years, Chantel has received great reviews of her 5 albums, the last 2 being released during the 2021 Covid lockdown. The ‘Shed Sessions Volumes 1 & 2’ were recorded at home and mixed by Wayne Proctor of Superfly Studios due to the pandemic. They were born out of a weekly livestream which Chantel performed throughout lockdown.

Over lockdown, as well as the 2 albums, Chantel released a rock cover of ‘Stupid Love’ by Lady Gaga and had a track on ‘Gumbo Blues, a tribute to Dr John’, both through Cleopatra Records in the USA. She also released the single ‘I Will See’, which she co-wrote and recorded with David ‘Nova’ Nowakowski (Scars on 45).

Chantel is writing for her next studio album, and is debuting some of the new tracks on her tour which, is taking place throughout the UK. These are one off shows not to be missed. Chantel stated, ‘I’m over the moon to be back out on tour again, the last couple of years have been incredibly tough for everyone in the music industry and it’s just so wonderful to be able to play live music in front of great crowds once again’.

Way back in the halcyon days of rock, there came a trio of 'superheroes' known as the Groundhogs, riding the blues boom into unchartered territory, they gained a reputation as one of the most dynamic live acts around, and are influential and inspirational to this day. The classic line-up of Tony McPhee, Ken Pustelnik and Pete Cruickshank toured the world for 6 years straight, including seminal shows with the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, John Mayall and Canned Heat, and at the legendary 1970 Isle of Wight festival along with Jimi Hendrix. In this time they produced 4 renowned albums: 'Blues Obituary', 'Thank Christ for the Bomb', 'Split' and 'Who Will Save the World'...

Now Ken Pustelnik brings you a new and exciting line-up - Groundhogs, playing that classic material with verve and power, and giving performances of energy and excitement that are as fresh and relevant to the modern audience as the originals were back in the day...

The Band

Ken Pustelnik (drums)

Original member of the classic line-up, officially joined in 1967, leaving at the height of their success in 1972 and features on all of the first 5 Groundhogs albums.

Chris D'Avoine (Vocals/Lead Guitar)

Incendiary guitarist of Mean Blue Monsters, Snatch it Back (w/ Ken Pustelnik) and formerly with numerous outfits such as Shiva.

Latch Manghat (Bass)

Heavy and hard-driving bassist of cult British stoner-metal band Gonga, Guitarist/Vocalist of the Rollbars, and producer of numerous artists such as the Heads.

Sol Latif (Lead Guitar)

Long-standing member of the Rollbars, formerly lead guitarist of Lastwind (w/ Ken and Latch), his ability to traverse the intricate and unorthodox sections are unmatched.

Brave Rival are the South East’s brand-new rip-roaring rock and blues Machine. Hailing from Portsmouth, the UK Blues Award Nominated band features the powerful and beautiful twin vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. On lead guitar, providing dramatic guitar solos and crunching rock riffs is Ed “The Shred” Clarke. And holding it all together is the rhythmic backbone, the self-proclaimed engine room of Billy Dedman (bass) and Donna Peters (drums).

Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Tedeschi Trucks, Brave Rival offer a style and sound that you’ve always known, and yet never heard before.

Since their inception in the summer of 2019, Brave Rival have gone from strength to strength, featuring in Raw Ramp Magazine as one of the 'Top 20 Bands To Watch In 2020' and nominated for 'Breakthrough Act 2019' by Get Ready To Rock Radio.

At the turn of the decade, hot off the heels from supporting blues rock giants such as Stevie Nimmo and The Billy Walton Band, Brave Rival captured their raw energy live by recording their headline set to a gracious sold-out audience at Hook’s famous Echo Hotel Music Club. This fabulous set of early material was quickly released to critical acclaim as their first Live Album ‘Brave Rival Live at the Echo Hotel Music Club’. Keeping the momentum going, a Kickstarter was launched for their first studio album with the target easily reached by their loyal fanbase with time to spare. It was then time to repay that loyalty with a studio album. Little did they know however, that the world was about to change forever.

With the pandemic putting the brakes on recording plans, Brave Rival spent much of the UK Lockdowns writing new material via the power of Zoom calls and Google drive. The abundance of material produced served them well for the eventual recording of their debut album in the summer of 2021. Recorded at The Mayfair Studio in the picturesque Surrey countryside with producer/seducer Tarrant Shepherd at their side, Brave Rival’s highly anticipated debut album “Life’s Machine” arrived on May 6th 2022 to critical acclaim. Emerging Rocks Bands Magazine said it best when they described the album as “Boss blues energy from start to finish”. Similarly, Powerplay Magazine finished their ten out of ten review by saying that “Brave Rival have unleashed one lean, mean and well oiled machine!”

Tipped as one of Joe Bonamassa’s “favourite discoveries this year” the future is looking incredibly bright for this young up and coming band. A successful set on the introducing stage at the 2022 Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival in Skegness saw them win the competition, securing a deserved place on the main stage in 2023. The relentless gigging and hard work in 2021 has also paid off for the band with a UK Blues Award Nomination for Best Emerging Blues Band.

Brave Rival are a band on a meteoric rise, firing on all cylinders and are about to take the world by storm. Their unique combination of beautifully harmonic, soulful vocals, epic guitar solos, pounding drums and powerful bass serves up an infectious sound that is not to be missed.

James Oliver has already rubbed shoulders with many of the greats of the guitar firmament. Now, having recorded three vital, very contemporary albums with his band Glas, he is preparing to write a new chapter of not only his career but also Welsh music history.

His progress since forming Glas in early 2012 has been steady rather than spectacular, playing every gig in the Valleys before expanding horizons beyond. See him on stage, though, and spectacular is very much the word. Little wonder the late, great Deke Leonard of Man/Iceberg fame was moved to say that ‘Speaking as a guitarist, James Oliver scares the hell out of me.’ Taff Williams and Tweke Lewis, who have played with him, were similarly impressed.

Oliver’s propulsive guitar won Glas an invitation to play the prestigious Monaghan Blues Festival in Ireland – the first Welsh act to do so – while other festivals at Tenby and Colne soon followed. His rootsy, Fender-fuelled music has been heard supporting the likes of Albert Lee . Bill Kirchen,and, only this year, Played London’s legendary 100 Club. Former Love Sculpture/Dave Edmunds bassist John David has worked with Jamesin the studio, further enhancing a more than respectable CV.

As music business veterans will tell you, success is 10 per cent inspiration and 90 per cent perspiration. As he enters the next stage of his career, James Oliver has a track record that shows he will not allow an ounce of his talents to be wasted. And with new musicians to interact with, chances are the music in store will exhibit hitherto unheard dimensions to delight his growing army of fans. Blues, rock a billy, rock and country…it’s all here in one explosive pickin’ package.

International touring blues rock powerhouse Catfish are making waves on the music scene in the UK and Europe.  In 2018 they won the UK Blues Award for Blues Act of the Year (England) to add to their 2016 British Blues Award. This year they were nominated for three UK Blues awards, winning two of them - Band of the Year and Blues Instrumentalist of the Year (Matt Long).

In the last few years, they have played at almost every major UK blues festival and have established themselves as a real force in the British blues scene.  They now tour regularly in Europe and, although their tours in March and April plus most of the summer festivals have been cancelled this year due to Covid-19, they still have a November tour of Europe in the diary.

Their first two albums 'So Many Roads' and ‘Broken Man’ both reached no. 1 in the IBBA airplay charts.  The second of these, ‘Broken Man’, was also nominated for a UK Blues Award and was named album of the year by the IBBA.  Their current album 'Burning Bridges' was released in May 2019 and has received excellent reviews from the UK and European music press.  It was the third most played album by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association in 2019 and has been nominated for a UK blues award for 2020 as album of the year.

'Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today.  The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today...' Blues Matters Magazine.

THE HIDING MAGPIES are an emerging alternative Rock Band from Lancashire. Their first album covers all aspects of love, loss, and redemption with a nod to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Their latest album ‘Searching For Gold’ establishes them as a great melodic band in their own right. This exciting line-up is now a six piece with glorious three-part harmonies and impressive musicianship.

Jake Dixon the bandleader, songwriter, singer and guitarist is amply supported by the pooled band experiences of tours with Chuck Berry, Nico, Louisiana Red, Atomic Rooster, and Denny Lane.

Their latest single ‘Home’, recorded at Hope Mill Studio in Manchester, will be released in February 2023 and marks a new era in the bands’ development.
Wherever they play, be it a pub, club or festival, they are always rewarded with standing ovations and a following of loyal fans.
This year they will be appearing at The Northern Kin Festival, The Blues Rhythm and Rock Festivals in Glasgow, Whitby and Looe, The Beatherder Festival and countless other gigs around the UK.

Fast losing their reputation as the “best kept” blues secret in the UK, Backbone Blues Band are setting a pace to 2016 and ‘17 with a busy and varied schedule. Although still a British rarity; they are better known in the USA than in the Thames Valley, from where most of them hail, and with their 6th annual tour of the States under their belt in October 2015, the band are tipping their hat at the next twelve months here at home.

Their reputation is growing fast and has attracted the attention of visiting American artists Loomis Hamilton and Larry Garner for whom they’ve played support, as well as the UK’s young slinger, Laurence Jones who they’ve recently shared a stage with at Reading and Rebecca Downes.

Their second album ‘Which Way To The Blues’ was released in late summer 2015, and received a glowing review in Blues in Britain magazine; they said ‘an album full of highly enjoyable goodies by five guys at the top of their blues’. Their first album in 2013 ‘Made in Britain’ enjoyed similar reviews and was promoted live on the famous Sonny Payne’s radio show in Helena Arkansas, ‘King Biscuit Time’. “More of a privilege than a promotional stunt, Sonny’s a genuine hero of the blues” commented Duncan Highet, the band’s bass player and singer.

They’ve played from ‘Beale to Bourbon’ on their USA tours, including Beale St in Memphis, King Biscuit Festival in Helena, the Balcony Music Club and Bamboulas in New Orleans and the world famous Ground Zero Blues Club, where they have an entire Sunday dedicated to them under the billing, “The Big British Blues Brunch”. They fold all that experience into their performances back in the UK. Influenced by the old blues men and inspired by the new, their music has blues at its heart, and is threaded with soul, rock and country and delivers a style that’s both eclectic in its construction, but unmistakably “Backbone” in its delivery.

“What we’ve learned most from our tours of the Delta, is that as well as the music, you have to put on a show. Just playing well isn’t enough” says Tony Seaman one of the band’s guitarists. “You can’t just shuffle on stage in old jeans and a scruffy T-shirt, you have to pay your dues and pay respect to the music and audience”. Frank McConnell the other guitarist in the band expands on the theme, “We play songs. Yes it’s plainly the blues, but not predictably so; well written, well-constructed and well-executed songs is what try to do, we’re also choosy about the covers we play and give them the full Backbone treatment too”.

Backbone are a band that have clearly worked hard at what they do. With a tight rhythm section, creative guitars and keys and soulful vocals, they deliver a sound that grooves when it swings and punches well above its weight when it rocks.

Backbone Blues Band are Duncan Highet (Bass / Vocals), Martin Jezzard (Drums), Tony Seaman (Guitar / Vocals), Frank McConnell (Guitar) and Steve Pearce (Keyboards).
Go see them, they know their work.

A new line up saw a difference in direction with players from “The Brand New Heavy’s” and “The Brothers Groove” coming on board.

With former Pirate Mike Roberts on drums, Lloyd Green (son of guitar legend Mick Green) on bass guitar, husky blues singer Jamie Smy on vocals, the band is rounded off on guitar by Adam Norsworthy, also know as the singer and guitarist in blues scene mainstays Mustangs.

The band draws its influences from a wide range of classic bands from Dr Feelgood to Fleetwood Mac. Their original music is classic blues rock, but always played with attack, energy, melody and a sense of fun.

Vintage blues duo based in Plymouth in the UK. Vince has been playing and singing the blues in all its forms since the mid 80s and has influenced many likeminded musicians with his guitar playing. Sophie Lord was one of those people. Recently returning to Plymouth after 10 years working as a bass player in London, Sophie joined forces with Vince in early 2022. Together they have gained a huge following on social media platforms for their blues music videos which have reached millions of people around the world. Their style touches on jump blues, calypso, swing & ragtime.






Hailing primarily from Bristol, Phoenix River Band’s crowd-pleasing, distinctive 'West Coast' sound is a potent mix of original songs with driving beats and soulful melodies, merging elements of Classic Rock, R&B, Blues, Country Rock and Americana.

Centred around song writer Chris Melhuish, who sings most lead vocals and plays some pretty mean blues-infused guitar, the band comprises the rhythm section of Dave Dunster on drums and Mike Pitt on bass, keyboardist Andy Allpass on organ and piano, and vocalists Jo Melhuish and Shelley Dunster, who blend nicely in harmony, with Jo also singing lead with a very soulful voice. All of them integral to the bands overall sound.

Inspired by, and taking influence from the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Dire Straits, Tom Petty, The Allman Brothers, The Eagles, Chris Rea and Jackson Browne, Phoenix River Band's music is rooted in the song writing ethos of the '60s and '70s, delivered by a band that you might think sounds like one from that period but, in truth, sound like no one but themselves, in a style best described as ‘Atlanticana’.

Comfortable in any setting Phoenix River Band have delighted music-lovers from small club venues to Concert Halls & Festivals, playing fully electric or 'unplugged' sets and performing with many classic artists including Wishbone Ash, Love Revisited, 10cc, The Blockheads, The Yardbirds, Focus and Walter Trout.
