The Bous are back in town!

Join us for another great knees up with the Boutones! For those not familiar with this fantastic band here’s an intro (although they really don’t need one)… “The Boutones are a midlands based, four piece ‘covers’ band on a mission: to entertain and educate in equal measure, whilst bringing something fresh [but warm and vintage of course!] to the live music circuit. We consist of a [ahem] mature line up, with over 140 years combined gigging experience across pro & semi pro, that has encompassed touring, theatre, cruise ships, teaching and session work! Our aim in life is to make you, the listener, happy and maybe a little inquisitive, having heard some great new [to you!] and old songs played well. We like to take originals of known covers,some old, some new, and add a little of our own ‘feel’.”


Pistol Pete Wearn

The Sarah Knight Band

A band you absolutely do not want to miss!
The band is a Blues Rock cover band covering artists such as Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Free, The Who, Frank Zappa, Rush, Janis Joplin, Rival Sons, Fleetwood Mac, Band of Skulls, James Brown, Jeff Beck, but also mixing in some more up to date artists such as Portishead, Dusty Springfield and Goldfrapp all done in their own blues style. Sarah Knight fronts the band with stunning vocals that captivate any audience. Lee Kirkman is the man machine holding everyone together with his hard hitting technical style and Liam Gibb provides a seductive and thumping bass that wonders and roams free. The solid rhythm section ensures that Andy Scoffin is free to let that incredible guitar scream and sing for his amazing solos.
So if you fancy some stunning vocals with a modern twist on the classic blues rock bands of the 70s. Hendrix meets Goldfrapp, Bonamassa meets Portishead. Sarah Knight and the Blue Stones are the exciting must see band that you just can’t miss!
