Tides Trio Band +Scarlet Estate
Jul 14 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Who’d have thought that a Blues Guitarist, Rhythmic Keys player and a Funk Drummer could come together to form a powerhouse of soul-driven grooves with a unique, combined style? ‘The Tides Trio’ express an exciting blend of blues, Soul and exhilaration to take you away on a on a wild ride of nostalgia.

After meeting at Leeds Conservatoire in September 2023, Dacey, George and Sam have written many songs with a range of influence and the lack of a permanent vocalist allows them to experiment in a range of genres. They are currently working on their debut album which will be released by the end of the year so watch this space!

Anyone can listen to The Tides Trio – a band for all.

Combining her sultry voice and electric guitar to create rock songs infused with blues and soul, Mary Spender’s songwriting showcases her virtuosic style of guitar playing as well as her wide vocal range.

Mary has amassed over 79 million views on her YouTube channel with over 690k subscribers watching her weekly videos on life as a 21st century musician. Predominantly targeted towards guitarists and singer/songwriters, she both shares her own experiences and interviews prominent artists such as Cory Wong, Santana, KT Tunstall and James Valentine of Maroon 5. Mary has found an interactive community who are incredibly supportive of her work and allow her to release music as an independent artist – no label, no middlemen, just true fans.

In March 2021 Mary wrote, recorded and released John Mayer’s new track ‘Last Train Home’ before he did, responding to a snippet he released on Instagram. The video went viral and caught the attention of Mayer himself, who invited Mary to hear the finished track before anyone else.

In 2022 she released ‘Songbook Volumes 1 & 2’, a double album of new material funded by fans through Patreon.

A fully produced studio album of fan favourites, titled Super. Sexy. Heartbreak was released in October 2023.

Watermelon Slim & Heavy Drunk & Guitarist Leonardo Giuliani

Fans of blues rejoice as US and UK artists Watermelon Slim, Heavy Drunk, and Leonardo Guiliani team up for ‘The Mississippi Delta Blues Experience 2024’ tour this October.
The tour will see the three artists play 10 intimate shows across the UK between Oct 2nd to 12th, starting and ending with unforgettable London performances.
Multi-award-winning Watermelon Slim was perhaps best summed up by the late Jerry Wexler (co-owner Atlantic Records, producer for Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin) who described him as “a one-of-a-kind, pickin’ n singing Okie dynamo”. He is a 2x winner of the Blues Music Award for Band of the Year and Album of the Year, as well as a 2x winner of MOJO Magazine’s no. 1 Blues Album of the Year.

Sons of the South soul outfit HeavyDrunk has made waves with their signature raspy vocals and Americana infused sound. Their Mississippi delta blues, powerful gospel, and hard-hitting rock ‘n’ roll energy charged their 2023 album You Don’t Know Me which was released to raise awareness and funds for the crumbling grave of music legend Robert Johnson.

UK based independent musician, guitar player, and singer-songwriter Leonardo Guiliani joins The Mississippi Delta Blues Experience 2024 fresh off the release of his 2023 album Rogue. Produced by four-time Grammy award winner producer Tom Hambridge, Rogue showcases Guiliani’s talents inspired by the acoustic singer-songwriters and electric jam bands of the late ‘60s and the ‘70s.

Jim Jones All Stars
Oct 26 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

A bubbling swamp curse of unholy rhythm, Jim Jones All Stars is the latest project
from garage godfather Jim Jones (Thee Hypnotics, The Jim Jones Revue). Formed
during the pandemic, it features The Jim Jones Revue members Gavin Jay and Elliot
Mortimer, drummer Aidan Sinclair, veteran punk blues guitarist Carlton Mounsher
(The Swamps), and a full horn section (Tenor Saxophonist Stuart Dace and Baritone
Saxophonists Tom Hodges and Chuchi Malapersona).
After a midnight offering at the real crossroads in Clarksdale, Mississippi, the band
made the pilgrimage to Memphis, Tennessee to record with Memphis Magnetic
founder Scott McEwen (JD McPherson, Nick Waterhouse) in May of 2022.
The resulting LP “Ain’ No Peril” is a thick, greasy slab of Rama lama rhythm and
blues that highlights some of Jones’s most inspired songwriting ever and features
guest appearances from vocal powerhouse Nikki Hill and Oxbow’s Eugene S.
“When you’re recording within spitting distance of the Mississippi River, there’s
something about that heavy Memphis air that changes the way that you hear the
groove and grind,” says Jim Jones. ‘Ain’t No Peril’ captures that feeling and bathes in
that magic
