Two exciting British roots bands give a live-streamed show direct from Komedia in Bath.
With the fiddle leading the charge, Noble Jacks are out to take no prisoners with their high-energy footstompin’ rhythms, which have taken crowds by storm across the UK.
2017 saw the release of their debut album What the Hammer to much acclaim. A fiddle driven thrill ride, the band set out to capture the raw energy of their notoriously hectic live shows. Achieving radio play internationally, including support from BBC Introducing and Radio Caroline, the riotous album has become a firm fan favourite.
Since this point Noble Jacks have been touring relentlessly, with sold out shows across the UK on their headline tours, as well as shows at major festivals including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival, plus major European festivals. With their second album, Stay Awake, released Spring 2019, the Jacks went straight into the top 10 Official UK Americana Album Charts.
The Hawkmen draw from an array of influences such as rhythm’n’blues, soul, and rock’n’roll which they bring together in a classic, rootsy, hybrid blend. The band emerged as a full, live act in 2017 following the early successes of soul 45 and Craig Charles favourite, Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover (Record Kicks, Italy), a northern soul remix of Emma Beatson’s debut single Do It (selected by Craig Charles for the second volume of his Freestyle Records compilation series) and The Hawkmen’s blazing Keep On Working EP (Mocambo, Germany) which yielded another 45 and was widely played on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6.
In 2017 Love Is Blind was released and features on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club Vol.5 compilation and received more BBC 6 Music airplay. 2018 got of to a flying start with the release of the Chemistry Of Love single, yet more plays on BBC 6 Music, leading to a mini UK tour and concerts in Germany and France. 2019 saw the release of Soulful Dress (a huge dance floor hit), The Hawkmen’s self titled debut album, and the live video for ‘Baby Tonight’, which went viral on YouTube with over 200,000 views and rising. The bands’ live concerts have gone strength to strength with a mini uk tour, headlining the Frogfest Music Festival in High Wycombe and an appearance at the Boomtown Festival 2019.
This programme is a collaboration between the Bath Komedia, gig and festival promoters Fuelled By Cider and booking agency Midnight Mango Ltd, supported by a National Lottery Funded grant from Arts Council England.
