Headsticks + Abdoujaparov


Abdoujaparov​
Formed on October 19th 1998 by ex-Carter USM guitarist Les Carter (aka Fruitbat).
Abdoujaparov's musical foundations are the joyous and shambolic influences of 1977 punk rock. The music is raucous, fast and sometimes a bit country. The lyrics are rude, tender, funny and frequently a little unwell.

Headsticks

This band are proving themselves to be an irresistible addition to any line up.
With an ever growing fanbase at their side, Headsticks are reaching new heights with their self proclaimed 'Revolutionary Punk Roots Rock'n'Roll' which has cross genre appeal seeing the band gaining endless plaudits from pillars of the Folk/Roots, Post Punk, Punk, and even the rock and blues fraternities.

Now in its fifth decade, the Blues Giants trio play authentic classic American Blues with music by legends such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Parker, Johnny Guitar Watson and more, as well as some soul and rock 'n' roll classics.

 

Steeped in the Blues and Jazz all his life, Birmingham guitarist Steve Ajao and his Blues Giants (Mike Hatton – Bass, and latest recruit, (1993!) former Au Pairs drummer Pete ‘Washboard’ Hammond) have been thrilling audiences for 40 years and Steve is regarded by many as one of the hottest Blues guitarists in the UK, as well as being in possession of the kind of mountainous voice that was made for the Blues. There is always a segment in the set where ‘Washboard Pete’ wanders off into the crowd, including behind the bar, where he taps the living daylights out of any tappable inanimate object, close by, creating huge mirth and laughter. A must see act.

Cracker Collins..Boogie woogie, R ‘n’ R, jump blues guaranteed a good old party ... Katies style

Jolly Roger

Cornish sea-punk folk band JollyRoger fall somewhere between the sound of The Dropkick Murphys and Levellers. 

Inspired by the sea and growing up in the pirate haven of Penzance, they use nautical metaphors and pirate history to speak out about mental health issues and also the better things in life, like drinking beer. 

JollyRoger explode with energy on stage and are an eclectic mix of shanty vibes, humour and celtic punk, with a metal head mentality. With zero previous experience in the music industry, JollyRoger sailed cluelessly into the south west music scene in 2019 with a do or die attitude and a mission to one day shout ‘scream for me Download’ to a bunch of metalheads and they are prepared to do what it takes.
