Wille & The Bandits Live at Strings Bar & Venue
Strings Bar & Venue, Newport.
This event is for over 16s only - No refunds will be issued for under 16s.
Essentially Wille and
the Bandits is a classic blues rock three piece much in the vein of
Cream or The Jimi Hendrix experience. But in a similar way to how these bands pushed
the genre in their time, Wille and the Bandits try to take their sound beyond what is
expected of such a traditional line up.
The use of more bizarre instrumentation and eclectic influences in the song writing often
pushes them more into a world music or progressive
category. Having toured with
artists such as Deep Purple through to the John Butler trio a
nd played major festivals
across Europe, the band seem to leave an equally astounding impression on audiences
of all ages and musical backgrounds with their energetic and soulful performances.
They have received great critical acclaim, being voted in the
top ten must see bands at
Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and reaching number 2 in the UK blues chart with
their first single on downloads alone. Now touring their third independently released
studio album Wille and the Bandits fan base, repertoire of soun
ds, styles and innovation
seems to be growing at an exponential rate.
The band are praised in the press for their albums; bursting at the seams with textures,
originality and soul. Rock legends such as Ian Paice, Joe Bonamassa and Francis
Rossi have also
praised the band’s musicianship and their unique edge to Rock and
