Clowne Rock & Blues - Gig Guide:
The Clowne Blues Club is now Clowne Rock & Blues to more reflect the blues based Classic Rock Bands on offer & also because we aren't a club as such, as you don't have to be a member.

Sensibly priced drinks, usually with a choice of at least 3 cask ales.
Doors open from 8:00pm - Bands start at 9:00pm
|6th September||Lewis Hamilton Band£6 on the door|
|Taking influence from great guitarists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix & Rory Gallagher, he quickly developed a passion for guitar led Blues-Rock & spent hours every day learning tips & tricks from his idols. His guitar style has been compared to Joe Bonamassa & Eric Johnson. Vocally he takes influence from the likes of Dave Mathews & John Mayer & writes his own music. Lewis also has talent for recording & runs his own studio in Auchterarder, Scotland, where all his music is written, recorded, produced, mixed & mastered by Lewis himself.|
|13th September||Northsyde£7 on the door|
|Northsyde is fronted by vocalist Lorna Fothergill, who is also the main lyricist & songwriter. With a dynamic & powerful vocal style, she has been described as "Robert Plant meets Aretha, with a hint of Janis". Playing guitar for the band is her husband, Jules Fothergill. Expect a heady mix of soulful Blues, shaking Funk, & Zep-style riffing, it has been best described as what you'd get from "Stanley Clarke strapped to the front of an Intercity 125 with Janis Joplin driving." - while not fitting into an easily defined pigeon-hole, sampling their music live is usually the best introduction.|
|20th September||Rich Kershaw & the Night Shift£4 on the door|
|Rich Kershaw & The Night Shift is a new project from three highly regarded performers on the British Blues scene. Between them they have played at many of the UK's prestigious blues festivals playing the main stages at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, The British Blues Awards at Newark Blues Festival & at the multi award winning Hebden Bridge Blues Festival.

Pete Betts, who has been the backbone of the bands Rhythm Zoo & the Paddy Maguire Band brings his solid & powerful bass sound into the mix to complete the line up.|
|27th September||The Jeffery Brothers Band£6 on the door|
|It's a first visit to Clowne for Canadian band The Jeffery Brothers Band who begin their 2015 European tour in the UK. They were formed in Midland, Ontario in 2000 & consists of twin brothers Josh Jeffery (lead vocals, guitar) & Nick Jeffery (drums, backing vocals). Josh brings you back to Rock n Roll! It’s crunchy, it’s calibrated, it’s Canadian... It oozes classic hooks, simple timing, & scampish lyrics. Mixing such diverse influences as AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Cheap Trick, ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet & Buck Cherry, the band rose to the top of the Indie Rock scene in Ontario. Their hard work attracted the attention of Rok Cartel Music Group in 2003 who signed them in 2004.|
