100 CLUB TUESDAY BLUES ft. THE SHARPEEZ + ZOE SCHWARZ BLUE COMMOTION
+ Support The Stoned Crows
Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Dr Feelgood and The Stranglers, William “Bill” Mead has made a name for himself as not only a superb performer, but also as an accomplished songwriter. Bill’s high energy rock and blues band The Sharpeez have established themselves as ‘a band for all seasons’, who can be relied upon to deliver a sizzling set on any stage across Europe and the UK.
Their fifth album – named after the classic Marlon Brando movie “Wild One”, was recorded in France, where they teamed up with acclaimed recording engineer Paul Madden, who has worked with a myriad of stars including The White Stripes, Jack Bruce, Robin Trower, The Stranglers and many others. The material, the performances and the production all have equal importance across the new record, but Bill’s innate story telling skills are to the fore in the song writing.
THE STONED CROWS
The Stoned Crows are a young (All Under 21) British 1960s inspired Rhythm & Blues band who have melded the best elements of Elvis, the Clash, Dr Feelgood and Eddie Cochran, with the influence and excitement generated by the live performances of the early Stones and the Doors.
Music that helped define the shape of 60’s culture and it’s influence on millions of young people.
Such is their passion, they recorded at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis while still in their mid teens, coupled with live gigs at the Hard Rock Beale St.
Drawing heavily on the mythology of the sixties teen anti-hero and social unrest, the Crows are not just attempting to revive the past, but re-shape and revolutionise the genre into a unique and exiting reality for a world in the 21’st century.
