BILK are a Chelmsford punk 3-piece who have recently supported Louis Tomlinson and sold out the 02 Academy Islington. Their recent EP, Allow It, was described by Louder Than War as having a “Television Personalities/ Mike Skinner-esque delivery” which reflects “the highs and lows of British youth culture today via an honest social commentary.”
FLEAS were crowned winners of the iconic BurySound competition in October 2021. They have played support for well known local acts such as Bessie Turner, Fightmilk and Dingus Khan and recently co-headlined the Washing Machine 10th Anniversary Festival with Gaffa Tape Sandy and Stretch Soul Gang. Fronted by the highly charismatic Pedro Forte, their anthems will literally shake the room one minute and leave you in thoughtful reflection the next….before shaking the room again!
THE DAZE are post-punk/grunge from the Queens Road Studio stable. The band are renowned for entertaining the crowd with their high energy stage presence, swapping of singers and musicians and their short, sharp, catchy numbers all concluded with a massive, mad, drum, solo by the band’s energetic drummer Dylan

THOMAS BENJAMIN WILD ESQ. is a viral sensation who has been delivering his own brand of singalong, musical humour since 2016. The video for his sweary anthem ‘I’ve No More F***s To Give’ has been viewed nearly 10 million times on YouTube alone, and his debut album ‘Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog’ reached number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Album Chart in 2019 making him a much sought after, must see live act.

With banjolele in hand, Thomas takes inspiration from the wit and wisdom of the songwriters of the early-mid 20th century and combines them with punk rock sensibilities to create pithy songs full of catchy tunes and social and political commentary that speak volumes about the times we live in.

He has performed at venues and festivals across the UK and is a regular on the cabaret, burlesque and comedy circuits where audiences are left delighted by his humor, shrewd observations, charm and style. With a unique mix of original material, singalong classics and a sharp vintage wardrobe to match, his one man show is equally suited to large scale events or small, intimate settings.

Over the past few years, through his online videos of original songs, cover versions and streamed performances, Thomas has built a large and dedicated audience across the UK and internationally. He has amassed a substantial social media following and in 2021 received a YouTube Silver Award for passing 100,000 subscribers.

In 2020, he released his second album A Quiet Night In, which features the singles Pants Drunk and Smile And Nod (A Christmas Song), His third album Making Friends At 40, which includes the lockdown classic ‘Well, This Is Shit’, has recently been released.

‘My kinda guy…’ Bruce Campbell (Actor/Legend)
‘Delightful…’ The Nerdist
‘…Sharper than a cavalry saber slicing open a bottle of 2002 vintage bubbles.’ – Dan Lentell, Get Your Coats On
‘Uke-toting, Tweed-clad troubadour….’ Clayton Hartley, The New Sheridan Club

BELINDA GILLETT is an indie-folk artist from Suffolk whose voice regularly draws comparisons with Sandy Denny, Joan Baez and Weyes Blood. She creates atmospheric, ethereal, vintage landscapes with her honest songs of love, nature and life and cites Nick Drake, Radiohead, The Sundays and Frightened Rabbit among her influences.

“She sings darkly and straight from the heart. Wonderful!” – Brian May, CBE
“When Belinda sings, the world stops turning.” – Dave Hammond, Cambridge 105 Radio
“Honest and personal without ever falling close to vulgar copy.” – B-Side Rock
“Beautiful” – Jeffrey Lewis, indie-rock folk-punk icon

MATT REACTION writes songs about his local music scene: the people, places and events that have inspired him. Expect audience participation and unrehearsed randomness.

“A singer songwriter with something to say. Definitely not the usual thing you’d expect from a man and a guitar. Matt is an utter poet, using his storytelling and personality to bring forth a unique blend of musical comedy with his frustrations of modernity.” – Hayley Clapperton, Grapevine Magazine

Fred’s House

12 Mar 2022

Fred’s House

The Hunter Club is proud to announce that Cambridge legends Fred’s House will be coming to our stage on Saturday the 12th of March.
More details & ticket link soon.

Fred’s House are an award-winning band based in Cambridge. They make summery, 70’s West Coast inspired folk/rock but have their own distinctively fresh sound that is very much part of now. This group of musicians have the rare ability to sweep you away with their gorgeous harmonies, moving lyrics, infectious melodies and uplifting grooves. Among their many influences are the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Lissie and Janice Joplin.

Since forming in the home studio of producer Fred Cox in 2010 (hence the name), been creating quite a stir on the live circuit with their reputation for their stunning and energetic shows going before them. Fred’s House have won many awards; Audience Choice for BandApp 2013, ‘Best Folk/Roots Band’ and ‘Audience Choice Award’ NMG Awards 2013, the prestigious ‘Syd Barrett Pride of Cambridge Award’ at the NMG Awards 2017 and the ‘Best Folk/Roots Band’ at the NMG Awards 2018. They have released 3 albums to critical acclaim Bonnie and Clyde (2014) Faultlines (2016) and Careless (2018), and latest EP Walls and Ceilings (2020) grabbing 4 and 5 star reviews across the board as well as emphatic press.

Fronting the band is Vikki Gavin, a classically trained vocalist, who started the band with former member and singer-songwriter Griff Jameson. Fred’s House was born when the pair moved to Cambridge in 2010 and joined forces with their funky dancing bassist Gafyn Jameson and songwriter and guitarist Lachlan Golder. Later in 2013 Cambridge legend Paul Richards, aka ‘The Happiest Drummer’, recorded on their debut album and then never left. Band politics and relationship breakdowns lead to Griff leaving the band after 8 years. Since 2019 violin and vocalist Prue Ward joins the line-up and gives a fresh new spin to their staple sound. Fred’s House are busy writing and recording new material for their 4th album at North Acre Recording Studio and getting back to a busy gigging schedule after a long awaited pause during the pandemic.

Delicate Management is proud to present… 

When Rivers Meet
With support from Wilswood Buoys and Danny R & Paul Gillings

Please Note: this event was rescheduled from December 2021, all tickets will be honoured for the new date.

Tickets and more info here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/521793

WHEN RIVERS MEET will play as a five-piece as a warm-up for their debut UK tour in Spring 2022.

They have recently won an astounding four awards at the UK Blues Awards 2021:

Blues Band Of The Year
Blues Album Of The Year
Emerging Blues Artist Of The Year
Most Inspirational Online Performance Of The Year

“The British husband-and-wife are heavy enough to get your attention and quirky enough to hold it, with songs that give you a kicking but leave a boot-print on your heart. It’s an album to ride shotgun with.” – Classic Rock Magazine

“Electrifying… it’s a great debut. 9/10” – Guitarist Magazine

“This is an album full of raw energy, that crackles, buzzing with power and passion.” – Blues In Britain

“Blimey, this is impressive.” – Powerplay Magazine

“This album is outstanding and When Rivers Meet must be very pleased with the way it has turned out. It is one of the best Blues Rock albums of the year…” – Fireworks Magazine

“It’s not often I give an album a nine out of ten but this is something quite startling. With eyeball-slicing slide guitar, Hammond interludes and Grace Bond’s fallen angel vocals, the energy absolutely blazes.” – Vive Le Rock

Since bursting on to the UK Blues scene with their debut record ‘The Uprising EP’ in April 2019 followed by their second EP ‘Innocence Of Youth’ in May 2020, Grace and Aaron have been going from strength to strength. The British husband and wife duo have an ever-growing online fan base and have gained the attention of Cerys Matthews’ The Blues Show on BBC Radio 2.

Their unique harmonic vocal-led approach to song writing, dirty electric guitar, slide resonator mandolin and fiddle create a unique distinctive and contemporary blues rock sound that echoes 1970s classic rock with hints of the 1930s blues that inspire them.

Before lockdown, the duo toured the UK in their self-converted VW camper with an impressive tour schedule. Since the lockdown, the duo live stream on Facebook every Saturday at 8pm GMT for their ‘Rock The Lockdown’ series attracting hundreds of thousands of views.

On November 20th, 2020, the duo released their long-awaited debut album ‘We Fly Free’, to critical acclaim from the UK radio and rock music magazine media.

Chris Kimsey, the Rolling Stones record producer praised the album saying that “The performances are exemplary, the sound is magnificent, the songs are gorgeous. I love the drama. I love everything.”

In October, WRM’s first single from the album, ‘Battleground’, was added to the main playlist on the UK’s leading classic rock radio station Planet Rock.
In late November, the band followed up with a second single, ‘Did I Break The Law’, that was played on BBC Radio 2’s The Rock Show with Johnnie Walker. The single was also played on Planet Rock throughout December 2020 and into January 2021.

The UK rock music press were unanimous by praising ‘We Fly Free’ as one of the most striking, refreshing, and impressive debut blues rock albums of 2020.

Classic Rock said of the band’s debut, “Wheel-spinning out of Dodge like Bonnie and Clyde on opener ‘Did I Break The Law’, Grace and Aaron Bond prove capable getaway drivers on a debut album that unfolds like a road movie,” while Blues in Britain described it as “A stunning album of pure alchemy.”

Vive Le Rock said that ‘We Fly Free’ was “urban blues with the brakes off,” and gave the album with a 9/10 rating, while Guitarist Magazine described at album as “electrifying, it’s a great debut.” Fireworks Magazine praised it as “One of the best blues rock albums of the year.”

On October 26th, ‘Battleground’ won “Tracks of the Week” on Classic Rock’s Louder Sound website, who described it as “Primal old-school blues (more John Lee Hooker than Stevie Ray Vaughan) – dressed up in biker leathers and wreathed in arthouse smoke.”

November 2020 saw two more accolades when WRM graced the magazine covers of Blues Matters and Blues in Britain featuring stylish photographs taken by one of the UK’s leading rock photographers, Rob Blackham.

Blues Rock Review voted ‘We Fly Free’ #9 in their Top 20 Albums of 2020 poll.

The album was also made Rock and Blues Muse’s “Top 20 Blues, Rock and Roots Albums of 2020,” alongside Joe Bonamassa, Larkin Poe, Walter Trout, Shemekia Copeland, The Allman Betts Band, Marcus King, Kirk Fletcher, Savoy Brown, Bernard Allison, and King King.
When Rivers Meet’s debut album cemented their name and signified a bold move in their trajectory that singled them out as innovative risk takers, willing to take their influences, and putting their own stamp over it.
After two years of hard work, everything came together. The WRM buzz was in full swing.

Jamie Dickson, the editor of Guitarist Magazine, was quick to catch on to this when he reviewed the debut album by saying, “It’s a tough job to make a new blues-based record that really arrests the listener’s attention, however, WRM’s sound is built of simple but powerful elements, handled with taste but delivered from the gut.”

The music magazine reviews continued to pour in. Adam Kennedy of HRH Magazine proclaimed, “For blues lovers, ‘We Fly Free’ is a purist’s paradise,” while Steve Swift at Powerplay Magazine said, “They may be a duo, but they make a big noise.”

Maverick Magazine said, “This is the start of what should be a hugely successful career, while RNR Magazine focussed on the album’s production standards by saying, “The use of authentic techniques, including tube tape echoes and reverbs, adds to the overall production, reproducing a splendid live, vintage sound that reinforces the appeal.”

When Rivers Meet released their third single ‘Walking On The Wire’ in early February 2021, the third single taken from the ‘We Fly Free’ album which was accompanied by a music video.

In Spring 2022, When Rivers Meet will embark on their debut UK tour as a five-piece. As already mentioned, this is a warm-up for that tour. Don’t miss your chance to see these incredible award winners!

Delicatate Management is proud to present… Salvation Jayne on 26 March, 2022
(Support TBA)

FOR TICKETS AND MORE INFO CLICK HERE

SALVATION JAYNE exploded onto the scene in 2017 and have carved themselves a reputation for their white-hot, hook-laden explosive fuzzy riffs and glossy dream pop undertones.

“Brilliant!” – Topper Headon, Drummer. The Clash

“Salvation Jayne are justifiably rated as one of the UK’s most exciting up and coming bands.” – Planet Rock, ‘Ones To Watch’

After relentlessly touring around the UK from 2017-19, Salvation Jayne added to their record of Sold Out shows with a large headline show at The Quarterhouse in Folkestone in October 2019, adding to their vast number of past support slots with bands including Milk Teeth, St Agnes and Rews.

Catch Salvation Jayne at one of their live dates and see a band who encompass the huge desert style riffs of QOTSA, with Pvris’s electronica pop hooks – all combining with Chess Smith’s voice which is akin to the raw edge of PJ Harvey and the soulful power of Yonaka’s Theresa Jarvis, with lyrics that are fiercely impassioned and evocative.

The bands most recent singles ‘Jayne Doe’ and ‘Cortez’ have received support from the likes of BBC Introducing, Kerrang Radio, Amazing Radio and dozens more stations in the UK and abroad. On the back of this attention, the band recently recorded a live session produced by the world famous Sylvia Massy (Prince, Seal, Aerosmith, Tool, System Of A Down, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins and Tom Petty), Rick Rubin’s engineer. The session has been beautifully recorded in the format of a mini documentary film including live recordings of their new material.

Support for the band includes Abbie McCarthy, BBC Kent Introducing who described their previous single as “Riffy and Anthemic,” BBC Kent Introducing, Elise Cobain at Amazing Radio, Johnny Doom at Kerrang Radio, Wyatt Wendells at Planet Rock. Total Rock Radio and many more. The band have been interviewed and performed on Boogaloo Radio, and were Louder UK’s Track of the week, garnering more votes than the likes of Iggy Pop and Starcrawler.

JAMES WHITE & THE WILD FIRE

James White & The Wild Fire formed in 2020 and are a musical blend of Country, Bluegrass, Rock and Americana. The group consists of James White on vocals and guitar, Brooke Bond on double bass, Ed Goldsmith on banjo and Lee Dorrington on cajon.

Despite being unmanaged and unsigned, the group achieved charting at Number One on both the Folk and Country Albums charts on Amazon with their debut EP, Making Tracks, being released on 5th June 2021.

Read a brilliant review by Hayley Clapperton of Grapevine Live here:
https://www.grapevinelive.co.uk/james-white

THE JOE KEELEY BAND

An Alt-Country Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Suffolk. After making his name as a solo artist, Joe Keeley teamed up with fellow Suffolk musicians to form The Joe Keeley Band. With Alex Raymond (drums), Jason Rampling (bass) and Jack Lawson (lead guitar) he has managed to create a sound that draws from country and rock influences.

Joe’s music is very lyric driven, drawing on his own experiences along with inspiration from his love of outlaw country stars creates a project which can be appreciated by music fans young and old. With fierce integrity and a strong reluctance to make anything that he doesn’t believe in, he is making bold moves in a very ‘headstrong’ way to keep country music alive and appreciated.

LUCY GRUBB

Lucy is a Singer Songerwiter focusing on Alternative Country, Folk & Americana. From a recent Rocking Magpie review: “The delightful title track WASTE MY TIME can’t decide whether it’s a Country song or Americana; but that’s hardly a problem as both are one and the same; and Lucy Grubb melts them together with easy going class. For a young woman of only 23, her voice has a weary, lived in quality which is just perfect for a song like this”

On Saturday 7th May we are way beyond thrilled to welcome incredible Essex DIY punk duo THE MEFFS to The Hunter Club.

Since exploding onto the East Anglian scene in 2019, THE MEFFS – aka Lily on vocals/guitar and Lewis on drums/backing vocals – have built up a reputation as purveyors of frantic punk anthems and an absolute must-see live sensation. After routinely selling out local and national shows, 2021 saw THE MEFFS invited to destroy London’s legendary Roundhouse at Frank Turner’s four-date Lost Evenings festival, alongside headlining HRH Punk.

Following their self-titled debut demo (recorded in a day, and receiving exposure on BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, and Radio X) THE MEFFS released four singles, recorded by Billy Lunn of The Subways and at Black Cactus Studio. These received international airplay and spots on Spotify playlists. Their new album, currently being recorded with Frank Turner, is due for release in 2022, alongside multiple festival appearances including Futurama, Rebellion and Boomtown.

Joining The Meffs are long-lost post-punk legends RATS AS BIG AS DOGS (with their first live show since 2015), the indescribable hardcore-folk-dubstep majesty of STUDY OF US, rising alt-rock heroes SUPRACELESTIALS and the debut live performance by RED STAR.

Their debut single ‘Pretty People’ also won support from several influential publications (DIY Magazine, Louder Than War, Soundsphere); they’ve been featured on the Spotify ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist and have most recently gotten the seal of approval from BBC Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter (The Rock Show) who, after playing their debut single, said “as soon as I heard it, it made me think immediately of ‘Dry’ or ‘Rid Of Me’ era PJ Harvey, which is an amazing thing to bring to mind”. Latest single ‘Belly’ recently won plaudits from the likes of Clash Magazine, KEXP, Spotify ‘Hot New Bands’ playlist and Get In Her Ears, the latter of which called it their track of the day.

It has now been sanded back to the original wood and is being meticulously covered with delicate pyrography designs. Photos of the progress can be found on Sara’s instagram at @SaraKathleenUK – and also on the blog here: BLOG LINK
