Stephen Dale Petit - Live
'Petit occupies a stunning middle ground between the fire of Freddie King, the instinct of Jimmy Page and the soul of Eric Clapton' Classic Rock Magazine. Stephen Dale Petit is a London-based Blues guitarist who has played alongside guitar legends such as Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, and even B.B.King!
Moving to London from California when he was barely 20, he's lived through and survived the rock 'n' roll lifestyle of drugs and alcohol, composing and financing his much acclaimed debut album Guitararama whilst busking on the London Underground. He has since released 4 albums and toured extensively around UK and Europe plus giving masterclass university lectures on blues music and widespread radio airplay.
In 2016, he double-headlined with blues-rock titan, Walter Trout.
Rolling Stone Mick Taylor commented: “He’s got his own unique take on contemporary blues… I’ve heard him do a great live version of Freddie King’s “Have You Ever Loved a Woman?” It was wonderful. All his albums are very interesting, he deserves the recognition.”

The Boom Band - Live
The Boom Band features 4 superb guitarists-Jon Amor (The Hoax), Marcus Bonfanti (Ten Years After), Mark Butcher and Matt Taylor (Snowy White/The Motives), plus keyboard player Paddy Milner (Tom Jones/Jack Bruce).
Their debut album received rave reviews across the board. Van Morrison declared "this band is great – they're on the money!", after the Boom Band had backed him at the Paul Jones' Charity Show in December 2014.
Every one of the front line is not only a great player but also a fine singer and talented songwriter.
Everybody brings something to the party, there are no weak links. And, perhaps remarkably, at the same time there are no egos. Everyone has the experience and temperament to be able to sit back and let others shine and then step up and shine themselves when the time is right.
The band is currently in the process of writing new material for their second studio album, due 2017.
