Wille and the Bandits – Cancelled
Saturday January 16 @ 6:30 pm
One event on Saturday 16th January 2021 at 9:00 pm
Due to lockdown and difficulties with finding an available new date this event is cancelled
refunds will be issued by 22nd January.
Essentially, Wille and the Bandits is a classic Blues/Rock three-piece, much in the vein of Cream or The Jimi Hendrix experience. But in a similar way to how these bands pushed the genre in their time, Wille and the Bandits try to take their sound beyond what is expected of such a traditional line-up.
The use of more bizarre instrumentation and eclectic influences in the song-writing often pushes them more into a World music or progressive category. Having toured with artists such as Deep Purple through to the John Butler trio, and played major festivals across Europe, the band seem to leave an equally astounding impression on audiences of all ages and musical backgrounds with their energetic and soulful performances.
The band are praised in the press for their albums: bursting at the seams with textures, originality and soul. Rock legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis Rossi have also praised the band’s musicianship and their unique edge to Rock and Blues.
It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as
comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music, it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting, rather than settling for a tried-and-tested formula. Ten seconds of YouTube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band that is very much about discovery and one best experienced LIVE!
The evening will comprise two performances:
Doors Open at 6pm
Show Starts at 6.30pm
Show Ends 7.45pm
Doors Open at 8.30pm
Show Starts 9pm
Show Ends 10.15pm
Tickets: £17/ £16 Concessions
This band have been on my radar for a very long time and so pleased they are able to come at this time. Guaranteed to give pleasure and impress in equal measure.
Totally unique, this is a not-to-be-missed event!!
