'The Nick Steed Five' features some of the best seasoned blues musicians currently on the circuit with, Steve Gibson(Drums), Kim Nishikawara(Sax), Peter Mason (Guitar), John Sandham(Bass) with a new album containing 12 tracks of original blues music covering all styles of blues from Chicago, Country, Americana, New Orleans, Blues Rock, Blues Funk also featuring well in demand players such as Norman Beaker & Larry Garner whom Nick also performs with regularly on European tours.
For those who had booked tickets for Kyla Brox: As you may be aware, Kyla recently won the European Blues Challenge. As a condition of winning, she has to play 10 European festivals. Unfortunately, one date clashes with our Stormy Sunday Blues, so we're going to have to reschedule Kyla for another date. We will be in contact with all of you who have already purchased tickets with your options. In the mean time keep an eye out for news of the replacement act for this date!

'These Guys are really good!'
'Its about time we heard music of this level being performed again, love it!'
Francis Dunnery (It Bites Guitarist)
'Absolutely Brilliant playing,superb choice of music'
''Over the years I have had the good fortune to play with some of the best musicians in the world, and Nick is up there with the very best. It always amazes me how deep his knowledge is of all styles from New Orleans, Jazz and Prog. And it has been heard to great effect with his work with Larry Garner, Chris Farlowe, Sonja Kristina and numerous other great established artists we have worked together with.
Besides being a master of the keyboards on piano and organ he is also a great songwriter, which is much in evidence on his new album.
He is in the front line of younger blues men coming through and add this talent to a great showman and you have the full package.' Norman Beaker
'Absolutely wonderful playing'
Gary Husband (Drummer, Jack Bruce, John McLaughlin)
"Delicious dozen of barely bridled rhythm-and-blues from British ivories-tinkler and his posse of merry gentlemen."
Dmitry M Epstein
'You guys are one of the tightest sounding bands i've heard, loving your set!'
