HARD & HEAVY ROCK 'N' ROLL!
“Nitroville combine the speed of Airbourne and the comfort of Lynyrd Skynyrd, full of Iron Rock and Thunder" — Inferno, Finland
“You have to read twice to reassure Nitroville is from the UK and not from The Carolinas or Louisiana. What this quartet around powerful vocalist Tola Lamont throws into the BBQ pit sounds like the finest Southern style party where you’d listen to Motorhead, Heart and the obligatory Lynyrd Skynyrd. Such a tasty mix got the producer Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Stone Cherry, Lynyrd Skynyrd) to comment: “This just sounds great!!!” and by saying so he scores dead straight in the beer pong competition. Despite well known ingredients, this isn’t a painting by numbers job. Instead, Nitroville presents a classic inspired sound which isn’t stifled by conventions and one that crosses boundaries.” — Classic Rock Magazine, Germany
Rosco Levee & The Southern Slides
Cosmic Psychedelic Rock'n'Roll/Blues with a Southern vibe from Kent.
Rosco Levee & The Southern Slide formed in 2010 recording their true sound on reel to reel with their debut album «Final Approach to Home» which was released August 2011.
With the stage presence of Steve Mariott, guitar work compared to the likes of Clapton & Kossoff, all backed up by a powerhouse of a band with big guitar and drums, driving bass and swirling hurricanes of Hammond soaked in a spinning Lesley cabinet, Rosco Levee & The Southern Slides are turning heads, winning fans and gaining re-bookings wherever they appear.
«Rosco Levee was a revelation. A heady mixture of roots and blues provided the catalyst for the performance of the day and the highlight for much of the audience» — Blues Matters Magazine
Jack J Hutchinson Band
A British blues guitarist described by Blues In Britain as ‘everything that is so good about modern blues music’, his new EP ‘Get It Back’ was released in summer 2014 to universal acclaim.
Tipped by the Blues Magazine in their ‘Ones to Watch 2015’, Hutchinson has shared the stage with some of the best known blues musicians around today including Ian Siegal, Big Boy Bloater, Zoe Schwarz and Ron Sayer.
The Jack J Hutchinson Band’s debut EP ‘Get It Back’ was released in autumn 2014. The record has since reached number 26 in the Amazon blues charts, and number 37 in the US iTunes blues charts. The band are currently working on their debut album, due for release later in 2015.
“Hutchinson was born to sing blues and soul. With a voice imbued with a sandpaper grit, his crack band aligns him with the Faces and Rolling Stones.” (Classic Rock Blues Magazine)
Southern Rock with a Bluesy/Country swing from the West Coast of Cumbria.
Charm, swagger, talent, confidence, style in spades, If you were asked to describe the band Thirteen Stars then any or all of the above would apply. Armed with killer songs, killer moves and killer presence. Thirteen Stars live performances are at the pinnacle of their arsenal. Grinding out shows relentlessly over the last decade they have risen to the task of satisfying large audiences all over the UK and Europe, they have amassed a strong and loyal following and since signing with Off Yer Rocka records their popularity has soared as they were welcomed with open arms by the ever loyal ever loving HRH community.
The band’s sound is a perfect fit for what we like to call Gumbo Rock, a well-seasoned crock of Southern influences, blues, country, noir&b and sleazy rock and roll.
Mudlow play the soundtrack to the dark worries… when you can't sleep at night! There's trouble everyday! The dread of a flat tire on a country two-lane road at ten o'clock at night, where you can still be seen. Somebody's at the back door, there's a lady at the bar you used to know, and she's strapped… and a jukebox plays a Mudlow album. ~ Rick Saunders. Deep Blues.
StraightShooter hail from North Yorkshire. They expertly blend a mix of Southern Rock, Blues and Hard Rock, these boys (and girl!) mean business and are bringing their unique blend of high energy music to a town near you.
Straightshooter was originally formed in 1998 in the North East by ex NWOBM band RAVEN’s drummer Mike Kenworthy… They built a formidable following playing to capacity audiences in the region. This year they played at Giants of Rock Minehead. The band has always had a great mix of experience and youth producing a unique energy, never totally staying within the confines of any particular musical genre.
