Party in the Park, St.Columb August 8th

Make sure you come along to Party in the Park at St.Columb on August 8th and catch new BKBB bass player Joe Hoskin at his first show with the band. The Bare Knuckle Blues Band hit the stage at 5pm and this show marks the start of the band’s next round of gigs throughout Cornwall.

Twelve down!

Another fantastic show at our favourite Falmouth venue, Finn M’Couls. A two hour set packed with blues rock classics marked the 12th show for the band and celebrated moving past the 10,000 play point for the Round 1 EP.

Falmouth here we come!

IT 201

We’re heading back to our favourite Falmouth gig, Finn M’Couls on Saturday May 25th. Looking forward to a night of hard rocking blues – spread the word and get on down there!

St.Columb you rock!

A big thank you to all who turned out last night to the BKBB show at the Red Lion in St.Columb. It’s always a pleasure to play for such an enthusiastic audience and in such a great venue. We’re looking forward to coming back.

Songs loaded up!

After a few last minute tweaks we’re pleased to announce that the 4 songs we’ve recorded with John Cornfield are now up on the site under ‘music’. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed recording them and we’ll be looking to record some more over the next few months.

Home Turf!

We’re back in the Constantine area on Saturday 27th playing at the Social Club in the village; a great venue with plenty of room. If you came to the Trengilly Wartha show and struggled to see the band due to the sheer volume of people crammed into the pub, this is a great opportunity to catch them again. You don’t need to be a member of the club to go and entry is free so if you’re after a great night of hard rockin’ blues this is one not to miss.

New Material

The band lineup was completed by Derek in late 2012 with rehearsals starting in earnest at the end of December as the Bare Knuckle Blues Band was born. Moving into 2013 things have moved along nice and quickly; the band has now played 7 shows around Cornwall and as far afield as the Great British Guitar Show in Birmingham. There’s a full summer of gigs booked throughout the county and we’re set to introduce new material as we go, starting with the shows at The Brit in St.Austell(20th April)and the Social Club in Constantine(27th April).

 

Recording with John Cornfield

We’re in the final stages of recording 4 songs with John Cornfield(Muse, Supergrass, Oasis, Robert Plant) in preparation for working on a complete album later in the year. All 4 songs will be available to download free for those signed up to the regular band news(if you’re not signed up yet hit ‘band news’ at the top of the page).

 

Bare Knuckle Blues Band Gigs

Bare Knuckle Blues Band

We’ve now got 4 gigs under our belt and we’re delighted with the way we’ve been steadily improving. We’re quite a critical bunch when it comes to our playing and performance because it’s all about you as far as we are concerned. We’re ambitious and want to ensure every performance is better than the last, giving you a great night out, better than anything else you’ll find around in the Blues Rock scene.

Next step up is to record a three track demo of a few covers so we can ping that around and spread our wings a little. We’re also about to start writing our own material and we’ll update you on more of that soon.

Thanks for reading!
