Friday 31st January The Clifton Set
The Clifton Set
These guys are just so good they don't need any introduction or photos. With players like Ray Martinez on guitar (Showaddywaddy), John Smith on Bass (the Mighty Pledge) this band come highly recommended for a great night!
The Blueshounds have marinated & evolved @ Gloucestershire for well over 20 years. Playing to ever increasing audiences, festivals and exclusive private parties, most corners of the UK have been gigged at one time or another.
Starting out as the Blind Lemon Blues Band, melding into Hocus Pocus Blues, then finally into Blueshounds, the band has evolved into the consummate good times blues band.
Playing the blues in all its flavours, the ancient art of weaving, entertaining and giving an audience what it wants from full on Juke Jive, sing and dance the house down, to sit down and cry into your beer.
It will be a night never to forget or regret
