Influenced by 70’s and early 80’s rock, The Dead Daisies sound is soulful and accessible – equal parts of Aerosmith, Bad Company and Foreigner: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. With stellar musicianship and pulverizing live shows, fans worldwide are discovering the band that is bringing back Rock & Roll!
The band features in their ranks some of the finest Rockers on the planet, among them one of the premier lead guitarists of this day and age, Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio). He completes a powerhouse lineup consisting of charismatic singer John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), well travelled bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), the drumming powerhouse of Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and bringing the thunder from down under, Australian rhythm guitarist David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).

Operation: Mindcrime tour dates
Wayward Sons is fronted by Toby Jepson, former vocalist of the highly successful 90s rock band Little Angels, joined by Nic Wastell on bass (Chrome Molly), Phil Martini on drums (Spear Of Destiny, ex Quireboys, Joe Elliot’s Down and Outs), Sam Wood on guitar (Treason Kings) and Dave Kemp on keys (also ex Little Angels). Passionate, honest music made by passionate honest musicians, these wayward sons have come together to create rock music that reflects their heroes from the 70s and 80s.
"Don’t expect ballads and slow burning numbers think instead a classic 60s slightly blues-tinged rock and roll working band. A band that sounds tight but is there to ultimately entertain you. This is rock and roll, mainlined" - The Moshville Times
"While this might be built on the Rock and Blues of the ’70s and ’80s, what they offer is vibrant, current, and edgy. It still has a lot of what Little Angels were so brilliant at, and nearly 30 years on from their 1988 debut album, Too Posh To Mosh, Jepson still has the verve of a young man" - Cryptic Rock
Toby Jepson's Wayward Sons tour dates
In only a little over a decade, Dan Patlansky has become one of the busiest and most respected blues artists to ever come out of South Africa. After his debut album which garnered Dan a reputation as a Blues-phenomenon, and his subsequent “Readers Choice” vote as “Best Blues Guitarist in Southern Africa”, Dan’s second album was released by EMI on the famed Blue Note label. Dan is one of the only South Africans to ever achieve “Blue Note” status and one of only six Fender endorsed guitarists in South Africa.

GUN’s contemporary take on authentic rock gives them an edge over their peers. Formed in Glasgow by brothers Dante and Jools Gizzi, they came to re-invent the rock ‘n’ roll genre, and were recognised with numerous plaudits and awards, including the first ever MTV Europe Music Award for Best Cover. Hit albums and singles, break-ups, line-up changes… GUN have done them all and more, and at each turn have come back stronger and better than before.
GUN tour dates
They may sound like something from a dark fairytale, but the Von Hertzen Brothers are actually Finland's No. 1 rock band – three siblings (vocalist/guitarist Mikko, guitarist/ vocalist Kie & bassist/vocalist Jonne) with a formidable live reputation plus the collective ability to produce challenging music that never comes across as specialist or niche.
Von Hertzen Brothers tour dates
Lazuli are a five piece prog rock band from France who formed in 1998. Somewhere between progressive rock and electro world, poetry and travel, the remarkable music of Lazuli is a clever mixture of different musical styles visiting new territories with a rather unusual instrumentation: marimba, French Horn, percussions, drum, guitars, vocals.
Lazuli tour dates
Dan Baird was the main songwriter in The Georgia Satellites, known chiefly in the UK for 'Keep Your Hands to Yourself' and for blowing Status Quo offstage at the Reading Rock Festival in 1987. Dan has been writing, touring and producing since leaving the Satellites, and anyone listening to UK rock radio in the last few years should also have heard 'I Love You Period' - another runka-runka-three-chords-and-a-cloud-of-dust boogie that helped cement his reputation.
Dan Baird & Homemade Sin tour dates
Cannock rock n' roll trio, The Bad Flowers, are influenced by the bands they were spoon fed as kids such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and The Who.

Mason Hill has its origins in the Glasgow rock scene. Originally in a teenage band, long time high school friends Scott and James had success in a European battle of the bands competition, ‘Surface Festival’, winning the Scottish section beating 12,000 other bands, which led to them playing the o2 in London.
Following that success they formed Mason Hill and after Scott & james recorded 3 demos as a tool to advertise for other musicians, Craig joined the band in 2013. The line up has gone through other changes until it was settled when Matthew started to play with the band in 2015.
Marc Montgomery later joined in Feb 2016 to complete the line up as it is today making in many ways the bands true birth being since Feb 2016
How do you describe the band’s music? Well words and phrases like “ a mix of classic and modern rock”, “anthemic songs“, “heavy riffs“, and “melody” have been used. Some people have described it as Alterbridge meets Blackstone Cherry meets the Foo Fighters.
