Stiff Joints [Blues / Folk Rock, 5 piece]
Stiff Joints have been a regular feature of the south-west London music scene for over 25 years with their own stylish brand of blues/folk/rock with sparkling originals such as Muse, Pushing Sixty, Down Decibel Drive mixed in with inventive takes on Blues and Rock classics from Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash to Willie Dixon and Robert, Sonny Boy, BB and T-Bone. Current line-up: Brian Coope – vocals, rhythm guitar • Jon Riley – guitars, mandolin, keyboards • Mike Allin – bass guitar • Dan Allsopp – drums.The band plays regularly at pubs and clubs in Barnes (The Bull’s Head, The Halfway House, Stag’s Head), Sheen (The Home Guard Club), Kew (The Coach & Horses) Richmond (the Red Cow), Twickenham (The Twickenham Club), Isleworth (The Red Lion) and Brentford (The Brewery Tap, The Griffin, Brentford FC). We've also enjoyed “away days” all over southern England and in duo or trio format haven taken in Wales, Scotland, and France too. They also have a canny knack of attracting some superlative musicians to join them on stage -- which always adds a bit of danger to the mix! Not only guitar, harmonica, and piano but subversive stuff like fiddle, clarinet, sax, squeezebox, and autoharps too. Guests who have played with the band in recent years include Papa George, Brian Willoughby (Strawbs), Tim Penn, Bo Taylor, Pete Finberg (Slack Alice), Doc Stenson, Ted Humphreys, Sandi Moore, John Warwick, Roger Barker, Kevin “Whispering Harmonica” Smith, Mark Stevens, Cliff Gater, Grenville Horner, and last but not least Mick Avory of The Kinks.Previous band members include “Brentford Dick” (Richard Brooks), Nigel Foster (Blues Anoinymous), John Prynn of the Stones (Counterfeit), Adam Roman, and Mel Coote. Regular deps have included Mark Stevens, Alan Brock, Dave Maude, Mike Watts, Dale Baker, Andy Jones, and Bob Baker.
