J.G & The Ultimates

JG & the Ultimates are a Rockin'
Rhythm & Blues band formed and fronted by guitarist Jay Gipson.

He has been playing guitar & performing for 30 years, playing live at Viva Las Vegas, Atomic Festival, Twinwood, and the Secret Garden Party. His musicial style is immersed in the retro sounds of the 50's & 60's but with a strong leaning towards the bluesy side of rock & roll, jump blues & R&B

The Cadillac Kings

Firm favourites on the blues, r&b, rock & roll & swing dance scenes, The Cadillac Kings feature five of the UK's top roots musicians. Mike Thomas: vocals, harmonica, slide guitar, Mal Barclay: lead guitar, vocals, Tim Penn: piano, accordion, vocals,  Jason Reay: drums and Paul Cuff: double bass & Fender bass. Inspired by early rhythm & blues styles with a distinctly modern take lyric-wise, this is a band that has earned a reputation for wowing audiences from night clubs to festivals, from theatres to dance halls, the length & breadth of the UK & Europe, from the Canary Islands to the Arctic circle. 

Along the way the band has picked up numerous awards including The London Times Newspaper’s best blues cd of the year 2004 for ‘Highway 17’ (33WM131) See Times' list pic below. And in 2009 Canada’s ‘Real Blues’ Magazine's awarded them best non-American cd of the year for "Trouble in Store" (33WM145). Their 2012 release “Gonna Tell Your Momma” (33WM147) was recorded 100% live in Norway and has had rave reviews at home and abroad. 

Now approaching their 21st anniversary, the Cadillac Kings have signalled their strongest ever line-up, featuring two of the UK's very best players – sensational pianist & accordionist - Tim Penn, and on guitar the brilliantly versatile Mal Barclay, alongside frontman Mike Thomas - ‘the best blues lyricist this side of the Atlantic’ (Blues in the Northwest). The line-up is completed by one of the best rhythm sections to be found anywhere! - Jason Reay on drums and Paul Cuff on double bass. 

Devils Cut Combo

UK Jump Blues four piece, The Devil’s Cut Combo, are filling vintage dance floors across Europe and turning heads across the globe, driving an infectious beat of authentic early 50’s RnB, Rockin’ Jump Blues and Boogie Woogie ….. all night long!

Their effortless style and authenticity raise the bar on the 50’s roots music circuit attracting attention from the swing dance scene, blues aficionados and rockabilly crowds alike.  Being believers in camaraderie on (and off) the stage, the combo has built up an extensive repertoire of hot R’n’B original tunes, and with their next album coming out later this year, they look set to shake up everything we know about Rhythm ’n’ Blues.
