James Oliver Band at Uckfield Civic Centre
Location: Uckfield Civic Centre Bell Farm Lane Uckfield East Sussex TN22 1AE
Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2021, 7.30 pm
James Oliver Band will be appearing at Uckfield Civic Centre on Wednesday, June 30.
The supporting act will be Brave Rival.
James Oliver has already rubbed shoulders with many of the greats of the guitar firmament Albert Lee, Bill Kirchen, Greg Koch to name a few.
His progress since forming Glas in early 2012 has been steady with nearly 2000 gigs since, playing every gig in the Valleys before expanding horizons beyond.
See him on stage, though, and spectacular is very much the word. Little wonder the late, great Deke Leonard of Man/Iceberg fame was moved to say: “Speaking as a guitarist, James Oliver scares the hell out of me”.
Bill Kirchen says James Oliver is the real deal, a passionate roots rocker loaded with guitar firepower.
As music business veterans will tell you, success is ten per cent inspiration and 90 per cent perspiration.
As he enters the next stage of his career, James Oliver has a track record that shows he will not allow an ounce of his talents to be wasted.
And, with new musicians to interact with, chances are the music in store will exhibit hitherto unheard dimensions to delight his growing army of fans.
With his latest album of original material TWANG, released in 2020, James plays
Blues, rock a billy, rock and country…all in one pickin’ package.
Brave Rival, a modern blues/rock ‘n soul outfit, hail from Hampshire and Surrey. They hit the stages in 2019 and their sound has been likened to Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Tedeschi Trucks and Bonnie Raitt and, after a string of support slots opening for the Billy Walton Band and Stevie Nimmo, they packed out the Echo Hotel Music Club in January 2020 for their first headline show to rave reviews and subsequently produced a live album.
