The Achievers Live at Strings Bar & Venue
Strings Bar & Venue, Newport.
This event is for over 16s only - No refunds will be issued for under 16s.
The Achievers are a UK band specialising in vintage dance music rooted in The Blues. They have been lighting-up the UK & European Blues and Roots scene with a set list packed full of rhythm & blues, jump-blues, boogie-woogie, gospel and a hint of southern soul – music that inspires even the most casual of dancers.
Armed with original songs and a wealth of reworked R&B barnstormers cherry-picked from the 40s, 50s and 60s their performances are filled with energy and positivity
Their influences include Little Willie John, Wynonie Harris, the Blind Boys of Alabama, James Carr, Magic Sam, The Band and the output of long defunct labels such as Goldwax and Hi!
Between tours, The Achievers retreat to craft new material and painstakingly source a fresh collection of obscure blues and gospel songs, to produce their entirely (un)faithful renditions - driven throughout by their passion for classic songwriting and stagecraft.
