Blues & Classic Rock – at Shepperton
Sep 19 2008 9:00P Kings Head-Shepperton Firewater
Firewater was formed in 2000 and has been regularly gigging around
London and the South East since then. The early blues material gave way
to more classic rock songs as time went on and the duo format lends
itself to a stripped down approach to the songs, showcasing the
considerable talents of singer Ed Hudson and lead guitarist Tim Scopes
If you like blues and classic rock (and don’t like being deafened in
the process of hearing it!) come and see us-you will not be dissappointed….
Ed Hudson-vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica. Tim Scopes-Lead guitar,
slide, backing vocals.
Music: AC-DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, Free,
Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Humble Pie, Chuck Berry, Black Crowes, Steve

Heavy Rock Mob from West London- at Staines
Sep 18 2008 8:00P Purge & The Vixens
One of Staines’ Favourite Bands!
A furious mix of distortion-fueled guitar accompanied by seat-tearing bass and knockout
percussion is shot at with a colt 45 of gravelly chants and rhyme delivering glory. Crushing heavy rock. Never a better solution.
Kinghorn Mills (Guitar)
Stanley (Bass, Vocals)

Prepare to ‘Glam’ Up at Windsor!
Sep 20 2008 8:00P The Ticket Hall Windsor
We Party like it’s 1973!
The Glamsters are the ultimate 70′s Glam Rock tribute band, unlike many
tribute acts, they encompass the whole genre of the 70′s Glam Rock era,
rather than concentrating on replicating a single act. Each member
models themselves on original icons of the Glam era. Rufus is the
ultimate ‘rock god’ front man, Jonny – a legend of The Glitterband,
Pussie – KISS kitten, Jimmy – the SWEET sensation, and Donny – ‘sex on
legs’ glam guitar hero. The Glamsters have been constantly working
since 1996, concentrating on Corporate Events as well asprivate
parties, festivals and good old pub gigs. When asked Rufus often says
‘we’ve never had a bad gig, people always remember the 70′s and the
great times they had, we just take them back to those fun times. We are
the spirit of the 70′s’
RUFUS FELTZ – Vocals… JONNY TEMPO – Drums… DONNY HARVEY OSWALD -
Guitar… JIMMY RIDDLE – Bass… PUSSIE GALAM – Vocals/Sax.
Rik Martin Band Sep 20 008 9:00P THE BARLEY MOW
The Rik Martin Band is based in Surrey
& has been regularly gigging around south London since being
put together in sept 05. The band was formed after a meeting with a
good lookin’ drummer girl by the name of Helen Watt (now Helen Martin)
at Robin Bibi’s blues jam at the Grey Horse, Kingston on Thames. Bass
duties are now taken care of by none other than “BIG” Barry Pethers of
Trafficker fame. We have also recently had the pleasure of occasionally
expanding the band with the talents of Plateman’s Ross Ewart. Ross is
without doubt one of the most talented guitarists I have heard
& had the priveledge to play music with, watch out!
The Band always plays a dynamic energy packed set of both covers
& original material giving the audience a truly memorable
experience of our brand of blues & boogie.
Hope y’all like…
