Tues 27th Feb
The Bottleneck Blues Club, The Roffen, Rochester ME1 1DY
The Eugene "Hideaway" Bridges Band (USA)
Without doubt one of the finest "authentic" bluesmen on the World circuit with a rich voice & superb guitar style.  Eugene is an old friend of the club & I'm delighted he's agreed to perform for us once again.
Tues 27th March
The Bottleneck, The Roffen, Rochester  ME1 1DY
The Richard Studholme Band + The Groanbox Boys (USA)
Richard, as many will know, is one of the UK's shining lights as far as blues is concerned.  I've used Richard's recording skills exclusively for all the albums I've produced & indeed he appears on one or two playing a variety of instruments. I heard this new line-up late last year & Richard's guitaring blew me away.
The Groanbox Boys are from New York & play wonderful "old time" blues & American mountain music on squeeze-box, guitar, banjo, keys.....another eclectic mix for you.
Tues 24th April
The Bottleneck, The Roffen, Rochester  ME1 1DY
The Corrina Greyson Band
I just love what Corrina does....superb voice, superb band (Winston Delandro on guitar!).  This will be a raunchy, gutsy night of virtuosic blues/funk & soul.
Tues 29th May
The Bottleneck, The Roffen, Rochester  ME1 1DY
Little Toby Walker (USA) + Mike Dowling (USA)
Well if you can think of a better pairing than these two World Class guitarists let me know.....This is a double headline night & rightly so....they'll each do a set & then come together for an impromptu jam.  Be prepared for much guitar burning the next day!!
Tues 26th June
The Bottleneck, The Roffen, Rochester  ME1 1DY
Geoff Achison & The Souldiggers (International)
I couldn't abandon my old mate Geoff after last years astonishing I've organised another UK tour for June/July (details will be posted on-site soon).  By now Geoff will be living in Atlanta, Georgia as his USA career has really taken off.  Arguably one of the finest guitarist/singer/songwriters in the World today he will present both an acoustic set & be joined by his amazing band feat. Sam Kelly (drums), Dave Clarke (bass) & Paul Jobson (keys).  
As you see all the gigs listed are at Rochester.  I'm working on getting our Maidstone venue sorted & will keep you all informed of progress.
I do my very best to ONLY present what I consider to be World Class music....I will not present 2nd best...ever!
Astonishingly we are in our 11th thanks to you all!
