 Snake Davis Band  

"Snake Davis is well established as one of the UK's leading Saxophonists. He is in demand from the biggest names on the British Popular music scene, as well as visiting artists from overseas. In recent years he has been extremely busy and in the public eye. As resident saxophonist on "Tonight With Jonathon Ross" he played with the likes of, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Chaka Khan and many more. He has been seen regularly on TV with the Eurythmics, M-People and B*Witched and presented a Saxophone "Masterclass" programme for ITV. He played all featured Saxophone and Flute parts - on record and tour - for Lisa Stansfield and M-People".


 The Stumble  

"The Stumble are a powerful six piece band based in and around Preston in the North-West and what you get is a classic valve driven back line driven with shuffle and roll. Their music is heavily based on the rapturous electric blues guitar sound that emanated from Chicago in the ’50s and ’60s. Influences range from B.B. King, Freddy King, Muddy Waters, Maceo Parker, Peter Green, Booker T, King Curtis etc. Basically, if music has that screwed down ambient live feel expressed by some of these guys, then it'll be on the playlist.

Paul Melville vocals, Colin Black guitar and harmonica, Boyd Tonner drums and vocals, Simon Anthony Dixon on sax’s, Cameron Sweetnam on bass, with newcomer Ant Scapens lead guitar making up the formidable six.

Seeing the band is an experience not easily forgotten as they are all about the exciting, live Chicago style Rhythm & Blues. What better reference could any band have than this - 'Man this band’s so good I wanna take ‘em over to America with me.’ - Lazy Lester"
