Red Butler set to rock Chesterfield!

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 and around Chesterfield, is that Red Butler will be playing at the Clowne Rock & Blues on Sunday 13th August!

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

At a recent sell out show, 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 “Big Bad Wolf” at or “Say Hello” at

The band is really looking forward to playing at Clowne Rock & Blues 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!
