The Slade Road club has pulled off a major coup, securing the Will Wilde Band for Friday and Victoria Klewin & the Truetones for Saturday.

Having just finished a tour of Germany, the Will Wilde Band will soon begin touring in the UK.

Wilde takes the harmonica to a whole new level and has been referred to as the Hendrix of the harmonica. He has been nominated five times in the British Blues Awards for best harmonica player and has shared the stage with many notable blues artists.

Supporting Will will be local band, Mayflower, which is beginning to make a name for itself at festivals in the area. This will be the boys’ first gig of the year, showcasing their dynamic brand of funk, soul, rock and pop.

On Saturday, live music fans will be able to indulge in the sweet sound of Victoria Klewin & the Truetones.

Originally conceived as cross between vocal jazz and blue-eyed soul, the Bristol seven-piece is all that and more, merging genres to create music that is engaging and accessible.

With a unique brand of catchy soul-inspired tunes, the group has been making waves both locally and nationally.

Both gigs start at about 8.30pm.

Tickets for the Will Wilde Band, priced £5, are available from the club on 01275 842428.

Entry to the Victorian Klewin and the Truetones gig for non-members is £3.
