The Spikedrivers return to The Den for their second visit ; Bluesroots at its very best. They are one of the most original innovative and exciting bands on the live music circuit.The bluesy combination of Ben Tyzacks sublime slide guitar,Constance Redgrave's deceptively simple bass lines, Maurice McEloy's precise drumming and percussion, along with their distrinctive vocals and harmonies , creates a sound that is familiar yet different to anything you have ever heard before. Their roots are firmly in the Mississippi Delta, but their songwriting and arranging talents bring them right up to date.Their music has been described as 'haunting', ;gutsy','tribal',and even 'phychedelic'. Spikedrivers are the new sound of transatlantic blues.

We're looking forward to this Friday when one of the classiest acts on the Blues & Roots scene play St Harmonica’s. Spikedrivers are a band whose music has been described as 'haunting', 'gutsy', 'tribal' and even psychedelic. Blues in Britain says, “From the first note, Spikedrivers demand to be listened to. Ben Tyzack, Constance Redgrave and Maurice McElroy are three very talented musicians willing to experiment and evoke unusual contemporary sounds while they continue to keep diggin’ the blues by the roots.” From the early blues of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Big Bill Broonzy they have added their own blend of north African and Native American rhythms, gospel harmonies, sixties blues and rock guitar. They’ve been compared to The Band, Led Zeppelin, Ry Cooder, JJ Cale, Fleetwood Mac and even Pink Floyd. It all adds up to simply the Spikedrivers. More about them here http://www.spikedrivers.co.ukSupport is another class act and comes in the form of Manny Fizzotti, a lovely guitarist and vocalist.Music starts at 8.30pm with the support act. Spikedrivers will play two sets starting at around 9.00pm. You’d be daft to miss this high quality evening. Admission is free to card holding St Harmonica's Blues Club members (membership for the year costs just £10). Otherwise £10 on the door. The hat is passed around to pay for the musicians.
