The Big Wolf Band has wowed audiences, festivals and promoters up and down the country. 

Support on the night comes from Lights Out By Nine.

cottish Band, Lights Out By Nine's origins are firmly rooted in Soul Music, mixed with powerhouse Rhythm & Blues and a blend of New Orleans Funk. They have developed a collection of their own original songs, which has attracted a growing amount of music media attention.

The first ten of those original songs were featured on the “Moving On” album which was originally released in 1998 and premiered by American soul DJ Matt “the Cat” Baldassari on his radio show “Soul Bucket” which broadcast to 6 million people in the Boston, Massachusetts area of the USA.
Subsequently this album was featured on various radio stations all over the world.

A three track single from this album, “Real Love”, which was produced by ex Nazareth guitarist and renowned producer Manny Charlton, added to the band's new found status and the live show was quickly developed to incorporate these new self penned songs.

Lights Out By Nine continued to build on their growing reputation as a great live band, playing gigs and festivals with crowds of up to 20,000 as in Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens.

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  Now, having recorded three vital, very contemporary albums with his old band, he is preparing to write a new chapter of not only his career but also Welsh music history.

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 that ‘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 10 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 new album of original material TWANG set for release in 2020. James plays
Blues, rock a billy, rock and country…it’s all here in one explosive pickin package’

Essentially Wille and the Bandits is a classic blues rock band 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 and 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 sounds, 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 Blues.

It’s rare to find a band as dynamic as Wille and the Bandits, one that is just as comfortable and as impressive at both ends of the sonic spectrum. In the modern age of disposable music it is refreshing to hear a band that still value the art of creating albums and who continue to bring new instruments and ideas into their songwriting rather than settling for a tried and tested formula. Ten seconds of Youtube will not scratch the surface of the band’s sound and message; this is a band that is very much about discovery and one best experienced LIVE!.
