Long Street Blues Club

Long Street Blues Club: Gigs 2019


Friday 21st June 2019 SKINNY MOLLY | Doors 7.45pm

Skinny Molly

This band is on the move and have become a major force to be reckoned with on the Southern Rock scene. Skinny Molly's mantra is "Never let one fan leave a show disappointed"

The music and live reputation of the band caught the attention of legendary Ruf Records label president Thomas Ruf. Skinny Molly subsequently signed a deal with Ruf Records, becoming the second "southern rock" band to be signed in the wake of Ruf's expansion into the genre. At the time of the signing, Skinny Molly was in the studio cutting what would become their new and widely acclaimed CD, "Haywire Riot" released last year.

This is no retro act though... these guys stand on solid songs, unique playing and creative instrumentation and arrangements to make even the most jaded rock fan (or even country or blues fan) a fan for life. Jump on and enjoy the ride!

Their live sets are awesome so expect the modern southern rock they are known for mixed in with all the Skynyrd classics. They have sold out on the all the times they have been to the club. This will be no exception.

Advance Tickets are £16.00 from usual outlets or book online (online booking fee applies) Tickets £18 on the door

Friday 28th June 2019 - From Mississippi Watermelon Slim | Doors 7.45pm

Watermelon Slim

"The most exciting and authentic blues performer I've heard in years."
A.W., Paste Magazine

We have gone the extra mile to put an additional gig to our programme when we knew there was a chance of The Legendary Waterlmelon Slim and his band coming to the club.

Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans has built a remarkable reputation with his raw, impassioned intensity. HARP Magazine wrote "From sizzling slide guitar...to nitty-gritty harp blowing...to a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat."

Paste Magazine writes "He's one hell of a bottleneck guitarist, and he's got that cry in his voice that only the greatest singers in the genre have had before him." He produces one of the most original live blues performances you are ever likely to hear. He is simply the real deal.

2x Winner: 2008 Blues Music Award - Band of the Year and Album of the Year

2x Winner: 2006 & 2007 MOJO Magazine's #1 Blues Album of the Year

Winner: 6th Annual Independent Music Awards - Blues Album of the Year

We know we are going to get a great deal of interest in this show so please get your tickets early!
