Party in the Park & Trill Fest Rocked!

We had two fantastic open air gigs last week at St.Columb with Party in the Park and at Par for Trill Fest. A lot of fun had at both with some great audiences.

Next up, a foray back into Falmouth as part of festival week and we play Finns Saturday 17th August. Don’t miss it!

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.

Introducing Joe Hoskin on bass!

Joe Hoskin

We are extremely excited to announce the addition of Joe Hoskin to the Bare Knuckle Blues Band on bass guitar.

Joe literally lives and breathes playing bass. Well known on the Cornish music scene for many years, he’s a very experienced musician and talented player who has quite literally kicked BKBB up another gear. You can catch Joe’s first show with the band at Party in the Park at St.Columb on August 8th.

First BKBB foray into Italy!

Buca di Baldabo – you rock!

Last night saw a fantastic solo performance by Tim Mills in Italy at the opening of the art festival in Vico Pancellorum as part of the art celebrations taking place throughout the area during the summer. With temperatures in the mid 30s Tim played a solo set of BKB favourites to an extremely enthusiastic audience made up not only of Italians but from right across Europe. Plans are now in place to take the whole band over into Europe next year and tour down through France, Italy and Germany.

Round 2 recordings now released for free download!

We’re pleased to announce the release of our Round 2 recording session. All 3 tracks were recorded with John Cornfield(Muse, Oasis, Plant) at his studio in Cornwall and show another side to the Bare Knuckle Blues Band; some punching rock, some sleazy r’n’r and a classic blues standard. Just hit the download the tracks tab on the left of the homepage – it’s completely free!

Lifeboat Inn

Just had to share this great photo from our show at the Lifeboat in St.Ives. What an excellent crowd – we can’t wait to get back and rock in St.Ives!

Job Done!

Falmouth, St.Ives and Newquay – you came, you saw and you rocked hard! Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend of Bare Knuckle Blues shows and all the positive comments and support. We’re back into the studio now to record the follow up to Round 1 before heading back out into our favourite Cornish venues later this summer for more hard hitting blues rock action.

Three Days of Madness!

We’re just about to embark on a three day trek across Cornwall that will see us playing in Falmouth tonight, St.Ives tomorrow night and Newquay on Sunday night. Once again we’re shooting video so if you want to be in a Bare Knuckle Blues Band video make sure you get to one of the shows this weekend. Let’s rock!

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!

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!
