Rocking Up Party in the Park

Band

It’s been busy busy busy this end, as we work towards getting our album written and recorded. It’s really coming on now, which we’re so excited about!

In the meantime, we’ve been trying to squeeze in some gigs as well, and we were really pleased to be asked to play St Columb Major’s “Party in the Park”. We’ve got a whole load of new photos, courtesy of our good friend Ash, and we’ll be posting those over the weekend, so if you missed it you won’t miss out, and if you made it you can remember the fun we had.

Have an awesome bank holiday weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

Hi all! Thanks so much to everybody for making it to the Wharf at Tavistock this weekend. We had an amazing time, and it was brilliant to share a stage with the legendary John Verity. It’s been great to get the new line-up out and about too, and Adam and Nathan are really enjoying themselves. We think they’re awesome too, so it’s working all round. The sound is where we want it to be, and we’re busy writing new songs and planning gigs all the time at the moment!

BKBB Supports John Verity

Verity

In case you hadn’t noticed, the Bare Knuckle Blues band has had a line-up shake-up and is now back with even more to offer! This year we’ve already lined up a load of gigs, one of which we’re particularly excited about. On Friday 10th June we’ll be supporting legendary producer and one-time singer in Argent, John Verity.  The earliest incarnations of the John Verity Band supported legends such as Hendrix, Mountain, Canned Heat and Janis Joplin, and since singing for Argent, John has produced, played guitar or provided backing vocals for various acts including Motorhead, Ringo Starr, Russ Ballard, Brian Connolly, John Parr, BowWowWow and The Searchers. More recently, John Verity has been dividing his time between his solo career and recording and touring with Keith Emerson (E
LP), Jools Holland, Mike Rutherford (Genesis), The Zombies and John Coghlan (ex-Status Quo).

You can get tickets to the gig here. See you on the 10th June!

Thank you to everyone who came out to both shows in and around St.Austell this weekend. Despite various members of the band struggling with the lurgy we made it through both shows and had a great time as well as making a lot of new friends along the way.

Next weekend it’s Truro and Falmouth’s turn and we’ll look forward to seeing you there.

Truro Blues Fest Knockout!

Truro Blues Festival

What a fantastic reception we had playing the Truro Blues Festival right in the centre of the city. Superb stage and PA but most importantly an amazing audience of music lovers proving that blues rock is very much alive in the heart of Truro city. There were faces from all over the county and beyond who had travelled to catch the great line up of blues acts throughout the day and no one left disappointed. Thank you Truro, we will be back in the next couple of weeks to rock you again at the Barley!

Great night in Truro!

Thanks to everyone who turned out and rocked with us at the Ale House in Truro last night. You guys sure know how to have a good time and seriously throw it down(literally!) on the dance floor. We’ll be back in Truro next weekend as part of the Truro Blues Festival and look forward to seeing you all again at the event.

 

Truro here we come!

We hit St.Ives again last night to play the Lifeboat during the festival week and what a reception we received. A packed house, plenty of singing & dancing and happy faces all round. Absolutely great to meet so many new blues rock fans and share in the fantastic vibe of the festival. Thanks to the team at the Lifeboat for getting us in on such a busy week and huge thanks also to Alden Evans for stepping in to handle PA duties at such short notice.

Next stop the Ale House, Truro!

Constantine rocked!

Once again the crowd at the Social Club in Constantine gave us a fantastic reception and proved they were in fine voice. Thank you to everyone for all the kind words and support – we will be back early next year for sure.
