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).

Come along to this awesome event at the Tavistock Wharf to hear our new original material and for some stone cold classics played the way only the Bare Knuckle Blues Band can!

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

 

 

2016 Is Set to Rock!

BKBB

It’s been a while, but you know what they say – good things and all that. Well, you’ve waited and we’ve delivered! Not only are we currently beavering away in the studio writing new material for your ears, we’ve also been changing the line-up of the band and snapping up gigs! You waited: we delivered. And we promise it’ll be worth it!

There She Goes Again

We’ve been having a seriously good time this year what with all the places, gigs and more importantly, people, we have met.

So we thought it might be a neat idea to put a whole bunch of images into a little movie and celebrate. Hey, we celebrate every gig to be honest but this is more about a celebration of you!

Have a look at the video, we’ve stuck it up on YouTube, and it is of course over on Facebook, and who knows where else by now?

So do let me know what you think in the wee comments box below, I’d like that.

Cheers for now.

 

 

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!
