It’s been eight years since BOBBY WILSON made his UK debut at the Rhythm Riot. He blew us away then and he’s sure to do the same again as he serves up a set packed with Jackie Wilson’s hits, delivered with tons of style and panache. It’s a rockin’, rollin’ journey through a totally awesome songbook.
This is really exciting… a female doowop trio, with their own 6-piece band, coming to the UK for the first time. OH! SHARELS are receiving rave reviews and now’s your chance to catch them live on the Rhythm Riot stage.
Catchy, floor-filling songs, great musicianship and more than a touch of humour are guaranteed from PORTUGUESE PEDRO. His quirky vocal style coupled with a backing band featuring piano, fiddle and trombone will deliver ‘the full enchilada’. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
An awesome young talent from Austin, Texas, DYLAN BISHOP is already carving out a big reputation for his awesome blues guitar and vocal style. At just 19 years old, he’s a teenage sensation and certainly one to look out for. This UK exclusive show is gonna be one to savour!
He graced the stage at the first-ever Rhythm Riot and now he’s back, more than 20 years later, with his red hot 7-piece R&B band, SUGAR RAY’S LUCKY STRIKES. It’s gonna be a jumpin’ and jivin’ jamboree. A sure-fire winner and rockin’ all the way!
With their zany self-penned lyrics and exciting, punchy arrangements, THE HEP CHAPS have already earned a whole load of fans at the Rhythm Riot with their shows in the Queen Vic bar. Now they are set to win even more with a main stage appearance featuring their impressive 6-piece line-up. Get hep, chaps!
Influenced by the ‘50s legends, EMMA & THE RAGMEN play a hot mix of big beat rock’n’roll and rockabilly. Their super strong 6-piece line-up includes several familiar faces… all fans of the Rhythm Riot and revved up for action. So you can be sure that they will hit the spot!
BOOGIE BANAUSEN are an amazingly talented trio, featuring the two youngest musicians ever to appear at the Rhythm Riot. They’ll be taking time out of school to join us, so let’s give them a huge welcome to their first-ever UK show.
Coming together for one night only, the Wynonie Harris Show will feature a star-studded line-up,
with vocalists EDDIE NICHOLS (ex Royal Crown Revue) from the USA, CAT LEE KING from Germany,
NICO DUPORTAL from France, ED STEPHENSON (The Revolutionaires) and SUGAR RAY FORD.
Sugar Ray’s hand-picked 7-piece band will provide perfect backing,
replicating the original arrangements, and these five awesome vocalists
will treat you to a non-stop, hour-long feast of Wynonie Harris hits.
This spectacular tribute to one of the founding fathers of rock’n’roll is a show that will
never be repeated, so don’t miss your only chance to witness something really special.
“Have you heard the news, everybody’s rockin’ tonite”
TRULY LOVER TRIO are, without a doubt, one of the world’s best rockin’ trios, and it’s always a thrill to see them rip through a set of pure 1950s rock’n’roll and rockabilly. Marcel’s vocals are often compared to the great Roy Orbison… a hard-earned accolade that’s fully deserved.
Four lead vocalists, and each a star in their own right. THE REDONDOS are an incredible group, delivering doowop and acapella just as it would have been heard on street corners in the 50s. Their live shows are rare, so do not miss this one!
A stunning 7-piece band with a fat, fat rhythm & blues vibe, SUGAR DADDY & THE CEREAL KILLERS will eat you up, spit you out and leave you begging for more. Their high-energy mix of sounds will pack the dance floor and raise the roof!
LILY LOCKSMITH is gonna thrill you with her jumpin’ rhythm & blues sound. Her powerful vocals, matched perfectly with her hot 4-piece band, conjure up all the essence of the female greats and she will stuff your ears full of foot-stompin’ fifties R&B.
Colorful, stylish and with a great sound, FIA SCO & THE MAJESTICS play a fabulous mix of country boogie and western swing. Their show reflects the band’s obvious enthusiasm and love for the music. It’s always time for a hoedown when these guys are in town!
They are legends on the R&B scene and, for many years, have been one of the best bands on the circuit. Hugely popular at the Rhythm Riot, we are delighted to be welcoming back NICO DUPORTAL & HIS RHYTHM DUDES for a ‘knock your socks off’ jumpin’ R&B show.
With a varied set of classic rock’n’roll and rockabilly with even a dash of vocal group harmony, THE RETROBAITS are a high energy trio who will serve up something for everyone. They are ideal band to kick off the end-of-weekend party on Sunday evening… and you’re all invited!
