ADVANCE TICKETS £10 EACH ANY REMAINING TICKETS £15 EACH The Bourne Music Club moves to Leo’s Red Lion in Gravesend to proudly present, In cooperation with The Rock Co-Operative, Sweet Crisis plus support from Trident Waters. Sweet Crisis is a contemporary Blues rock band in which the roots and the music run deep. Singer Leo Robarts and guitarist Piers Mortimer first met when they were kids in the early 2000s, and as Leo says, “This band is all about soulful, rock n’ roll.” ​ Sweet Crisis were formed in Cambridge in 2015, and after a number of line-ups an album was recorded in 2018 but then discarded. “It was very frustrating,” Leo recalls. “We spent a year making that album, and then realized we didn’t like any of it. So we ditched it.” As Piers explains: “We knew we could do better. We needed to be true to our roots and play the kind of music we grew up on” ​ The starting point was re-visiting albums they had ‘borrowed’ from their dad’s record collections: Free, Humble Pie, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Zep and The Stones. Piers offers “We want to capture the vibe and spirit of the classic British rock bands we grew up on and still love so much. Killer riffs, soulful emotive vocals and great drum grooves. We’ve always enjoyed playing epic guitar riffs and Leo’s voice really inspires our songwriting.” ​ Leo says “We’ve been guilty of overthinking things in the past, so we wanted to loosen up, capture a vibe and record ‘old school’. We needed to go out, play gigs and grab some studio time. Piers and I started jamin’, formed a new band, and then headed out on tour to Switzerland. We spent the days writing new material and getting high, and then every night played for hours in small clubs, trying out the songs on a different crowd. We arrived back in UK at 10am Monday morning, in the studio by lunchtime and by midnight we’d recorded 5 new tracks. We were fortunate to get Don Airey (Deep Purple, Whitesnake) to come in and lay down some Purpleesque Hammond Organ, and having Sarah Brown (Pink Floyd, Roxy Music) record some spine-tingling backing vocals was the cherry on the top!” TRIDENT WATERS 'Combining Terrorvisions pop-rock sensibility, Reef's bluesy grit and the vocal class of a Chris Cornell in waiting' Classic Rock Magazine 'Should put a smile on the face of anyone who appreciates Rival Sons at their dirtiest or Joe Bonamassa at his most fierce.' Wyatt Wendels, Planet Rock Ones To Watch 'This trio are power enough for anyone. Hollywood To Vegas finds this band nearing their destination' Fireworks Magazine 'I haven’t heard a band with this much groove since I discovered Crobot' Moshville Times Hitting your senses and coming at you like the offspring of a whisky drenched Led Zeppelin and Hawkwind, TRIDENT WATERS’ infectious groove and contagious riffery are sure to ignite. The Londoners will release their new EP, Hollywood To Vegas, on Friday 7th June. Prior to this, the trio have just dropped a brand new video for the single, Eva Lane - . The London-based threesome were born in 2015 and feature the aural talents of Andrew Knightley (Vocals/Guitar), Wilson Zaidan (Bass), and Greg Zaka (Drums). Taking inspiration from Rival Sons, John Lee Hooker, Winery Dogs, Albert King, and Joe Bonamassa, the band despatch an engrossing alternative-rock sound that is underpinned by edgy blues rock. TRIDENT WATERS are steadily picking up new fans and have already extensively played throughout the UK, sharing stages with genre legends such as Michael Schenker, Hawkwind, Shark Island and Procol Harum. In the over-saturated Rock world not many bands have the capability and musicianship to stand out from the crowd. TRIDENT WATERS achieve this very feat. Playing passionate, powerful hook laden tracks, they blaze a trail ahead of many of their contemporaries. Having previously self-released two EPs, Tales Of Conflict and Devotion & Seven, the groundwork is now in place for TRIDENT WATERS to propel themselves to the vanguard of the UK rock scene. The band’s new EP, Hollywood To Vegas, is the trio’s most accomplished work to date
