Featuring

The Achievers

The Achievers are one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed new bands on the UK Blues and Roots Music scene. With a reputation for innovation and originality they prove that soul, groove and song-craft still matter in the blues. Their own brand of modern, secular 'Dancefloor Gospel' has catapulted them from near-complete obscurity to rave reviews and big-stage appearances across Europe. Following the success of their 2018 debut album 'Live at The SVA' the UK Blues Federation chose The Achievers winners of the 6th UK Blues Challenge, seemingly recognising the need to modernise and diversify the genre.

The Stevie Watts Organ Trio

The Stevie Watts Organ Trio are all highly regarded session players having worked with names ranging from Secret Affair, Steve Winwood, Archive to The Spice Girls. Stevie met Nat Martin when working together in singer Jo Harman’s band where they quickly bonded personally and musically. Stevie’s drummer friend Vinnie Lammi was recruited then on a Christmas gig Stevie met Alice who was then invited to write vocal parts to some tracks that Stevie had written and their debut album Mission to the Moon came together on a boat in Shoreham by Sea. The fire and energy in the sound that these three make defies the fact that they’re a trio and when Alice joins them they turn into something that no other band (with organ bass) using this format sounds like. Take outstanding players with great songs that lift your spirit, make you dance as well as cry (in a good way!), include infectious funk and rip-roaring solo’s and you have something that you would be absolutely crazy to miss!
