Red Butler set to rock Arlington Arts Centre!

Once in a while a young band comes along that makes you stop, look and listen……..”Red Butler is one such a band”

The great news for rock fans, blues fans, live music lovers and aspiring musicians in West Berkshire is that Red Butler will be playing at Arlington Arts Centre on Friday 31st March!

Established in 2012 by Alex Butler, the band comprises of Alex (lead guitar and backing vocals), Dan Spellman (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Charlie Simpson (drums) and Mike Topp (bass and backing vocals).  Despite an average age of 24 the band members bring a wealth of experience enabling them to transmit their energy to ignite audiences

Having spent 18 months in preparation for their second studio album, ‘Nothing To Lose’ released in November 2016, their latest album sees the band deliver a mix of rock crescendos and riffs, that will leave their devout blues rock fan base in awe and take them on a sonic journey into new musical territory!  Drawing upon the combined life experiences of the band, the ten new songs not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows their gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder sound infused with a progressive form!

The power and creativity of their music has seen Red Butler win several national awards and other accolades, including:

  • Alex – runner up in Young Artist category – British Blues Awards 2016
  • Band – third place in Best Blues Band category – British Blues Awards 2016
  • Representing the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Italy 2016
  • Winners of the UK Blues Challenge 2015
  • Runners-up in the British Blues Awards 2015 (Alex, Young Artist and Band, Emerging Artist)
  • Best New UK Act – Blues Matters Magazine 2014

In front of a completely packed Tuesday Night Music Club (Hooley, Surrey), the effect their performance had on the audience was neatly summed up by the following comment, “There really are not words to describe how good last night was.  Put simply, if you were there you’ll probably still be coming down.  And if you weren’t you’ll have to live with the fact that you missed something that people will talk about for years to come.”

Words alone cannot convey the special sound and stage presence of Red Butler, but you can get a feel for what they are all about by having a look and listen to them playing “Say Hello” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BmTNnGT4QI&sns=em or Thin Lizzy’s classic “Don’t Believe A Word 2017” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SF62PcQ0-U&feature=youtu.be

The band is really looking forward to playing at Arlington Arts Centre and armed with a mix of high energy new material, after seeing them live……….it becomes clear why they are getting rave reviews wherever they play!

Don’t miss out on seeing Red Butler at Arlington Arts Centre on Friday 31st March!

The venue is located at Mary Hare, Newbury, West Berkshire RG14 3BQ

Lincoln Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 4 - "Live in Lincolnshire"

Before we know it Spring will be upon us, and by popular demand, so will this festival……

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Lincoln Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 4 will be returning to Lincoln Drill Hall on Sunday 14th May 2017! 

Showcasing the quality of live music in the UK; with Climax Blues Band headlining and five other very different, but striking bands, this will undoubtedly be another a great festival and an occasion not to miss!

It’s been a long road…..but one thing’s for sure, the Climax Blues Band of today fly’s the Climax flag with tremendous passion and style.  Now there is a spring in their step, taking the band forward and already pleasing crowds throughout Europe, the ‘seamless’ transition in carrying on creating the unique Climax sound is the result of hard work, disguised by a band having a great time making music….

As soon as they strike their first note, the journey begins and Climax present their very special sound, just as they did when the band formed back in the late 60s and achieved such great success and recognition through the 70s and 80s, huge selling albums like FM / Live and Gold Plated, the 1976 hit single Couldn’t Get It Right (from Gold Plated) and I Love You in 1981.  Have a walk down memory lane…Top of the Pops in 1976….. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRVSSwJYqh0&feature=youtu.be

This year’s full line-up comprises of:

Climax Blues Band – In the late 1960s one wouldn’t normally associate the town of Stafford with authentic blues, certainly not for a band of young lads…..well it just goes to show that geography and “great music” aren’t mutually exclusive!

Chantel McGregor – 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!

The Connie Lush Band – Connie is a singer songwriter, DJ and continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous gusto for life and music wherever she goes!  Blues is her business and business is very good indeed!

Catfish – With a presence at several major blues festivals the Great British R&B Festival in Colne (one of the largest blues festivals in the country) and Bluesfest at the 02 (one of the biggest in Europe), when you see them you will know why!

Southbound – Writing and playing their own Blues, Blues Rock, plus a little something in between, Southbound are heavily influenced by a heady mix of Blues, Southern Rock, Latin Rock and Motown…….a mix that makes them stand out!

Born Healer – Musically, Born Healer play soulful, heavy blues, with a groove, and Helen has been likened to such great names as Janis Joplin and Maggie Bell.  To say that Robert Plant dropped into see them play last year speaks volumes!

With this calibre of artist stepping on stage, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a creative mix of Blues, Rock and R & B, with a sprinkling of Soul in the mix!  

No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day either, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone’s taste!

Don’t miss out on going to Lincoln Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 4 on Sunday 14th May

The festival will take place at Lincoln Drill Hall, Free School Lane, Lincoln, Lincolnshire LN2 1EY

Early Bird tickets are only £25 and to book, please call 01472 349 222 or go online at http://www.lincolnbluesfestival.co.uk/tickets.html
