Swamp Stomp Swing Band

The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that’ll have the room stomping their feet and shooting tequila to ballads that’ll break even the most toughest folk, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit dive bars at night.

JFK Blue

JFK Blue are a stylish rock/blues band with a fresh take on well-crafted rock and blues, with stirring songs and superb musicianship. These are musicians with one aim – to play their style of blues and rock with freedom of expression, not to get hung up on genres but to play music that they like. In doing so their music is contemporary yet has an assured retro feel audiences immediately identify with.  
Some have commented that JFK Blue have a Southern Rock feel combined with melodic songs and great hooks.

Rough House Trio

The Rough House Trio made a big impact at last year’s Tobacco Docks festival and have been invited to play again.  The trio was formed by three friends, all with other successful bands but they just love to play together and with RHT they can play the songs they love.  They play at venues around Sussex and Surrey and have made a name for themselves as a real party band, transmitting their love of playing and performing to their audiences who always go away with a smile on their face.
