Legendary three-chord maestros who were rockin' all over the world for over 35 years. With more Top Of The Pops appearances than any other band, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt spent in excess of 417 weeks (that's over eight accumulative years!) in the British singles charts. In 1991, the guys were awarded a Brit for their Outstanding Contribution to Music; and Rick and Francis were awarded their long-deserved OBEs in 2010. Rick sadly passed away in December 2016, while Francis continued to tour with the band, performing Quo classics in acoustic style. They now play a mix of both 'Aquostic' shows and a return to their electric plugged-in performances.

With millions of album sales and concert attendances worldwide, Wishbone Ash’s heritage as one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts is assured.
Classic album releases such as Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans. Martin Turner, the definitive voice, creative force and founding member of the British rock legends, continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up - guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown - and remains faithful to the original Wishbone Ash blueprint.

Bad Influence is described as a 'rock and blues' band and that is where they sit quite comfortably. However, this band has many musical influences and it shows in just about every song on the new CD. Val is often described as 'Bonnie Raitt gone raunchy' or 'powerful like Janis Joplin'. Richard squeezes every ounce of passion from the guitar, whilst Harry and Pete hold it very tightly together at the back. Originally formed in 1986, by Val Cowell (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), and Richard Hayes (lead and slide guitar).
