JETROCKER EVENTS ARE PROUD TO PRESENT
Essentially Wille & the Bandits is a classic blues rock three piece much in the vain 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.
They have received great critical acclaim, being voted in the top ten must see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and reaching number 2 in the UK blues chart with their first single on downloads alone. Now touring their third independently released studio album Wille and the Bandits fan base, repertoire of sounds, styles and innovation seems to be growing at an exponential rate.
We have some amazing support acts on the night from:
Mongrel by Name, Mongrel by Nature…
Rock, Western and a host of other styles are put through the wringer – with honkytonk pianos & four part harmonies sitting side-by-side with New Orleans grooves, electric guitars and even the odd inflection of a synth, all underpinned by taut, inventive songwriting.
Whitetrash is a Dublin-based soul that can be immediately defined by his thunderous, gritty vocal that will passionately guide you through the dusty road-worn stories of his travels. Complemented by the nail-grit sound of Americana/Folk/Country/Blues supplemented by his Spearheaded Sparraw Hawks. Wherever he roams, the Sparraw Hawks are never far behind!
