The Ashton Jones Project
“He’s got a killer voice and knows how to work a crowd” – Jeffrey Daniel, Shalamar
Ashton Jones is back by popular demand, this time with his new collaboration, The Ashton Jones Project, to bring some funk and soul to BMF 2018. With an album on the way, Ashton Jones Project have been busy supporting the Grammy Award winning Shalamar and performing in Europe, as well as selling out their own shows and festival performances across the UK.
The Kubricks have supported UB40, Bad Manners, The Toasters and Buster Shuffle with their energetic live sets at venues country-wide. Their debut EP ‘Wasters & Wannabes’ was championed by Huey Morgan (Fun Lovin’ Criminals) and since we last saw them, The Kubricks have evolved their unique blend of ska, with new album The Heist making waves across the country.
Upcoming blues-rock band Southbound has recently kicked up a storm at the Great British Rock and Blues Festival, London Pride and the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival. Influenced by Fleetwood Max, B.B. King and Eric Clapton, Southbound offers an exclusive take on British Blues, offering a live experience that’s entertaining and mesmerising.
The Kopy Katz
“Absolutely fantastic. Brilliant band.”
Bringing some fun to BMF Saturday, The Kopy Katz are a wild, three-piece, UK rockabilly act. They add a unique, rockabilly sound to the likes of The Stray Cats and Lee Rocker, as well as 50s rockers like Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Elvis.
Litter of Kings
Litter of Kings combines a hunger for imaginative rhythm with the love of great songs. From the heartfelt to the surreal, Litter of Kings’ live performance will transport you to other places with a mixture of rock, blues, pop, indie and little dashes of punk and reggae.
BMF 2018 is delighted to welcome Norfolk nine-piece roots rockers The Vagaband to the stage. Their take on country, folk, Celtic, jazz, blues, show tunes and classic rock creates a sound that’s familiar and yet uniquely their own. Their third album, ‘Something wicked this way comes’ is hailed as nothing less than “brilliant”.
