Rollin’ & Tumblin’ Presents a night of the very best of The British Blues Explosion.
Picking up the mantle of The Yardbirds, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Ten Years After and Cream, an exciting collection of young bands and blues artists are helping to reinvigorate London’s live music scene.

Firmly rooted in the tradition of electric blues masters like Muddy Waters, Albert King and Howlin’ Wolf, these artists are not content to tread familiar ground with a fresh approach and much needed urgency, bringing in elements of soul, rock and psychedlia, whilst giving a nod to the past each groups
music conveys the everyday stresses and struggles of Britain today.

Acts performing on the night include the East London-based Aidan Connell with his 3 piece blues rock power trio, having already clocked up plays on Radio 2 and supports with Gary Clark Jr and Seasick Steve.
Essex’s Molly’s Daggers with their combustible duel guitar freak outs reminiscent of Humble Pie at their best.

South London based Sonic Jewels bring garage rock and psychedelia to the blues with their own brand of kinks-esque pop songs.
Kent based Maker are a 4 piece rock n roll band.Their influences range from the early blues legends through the stomping pop and soul of the sixties having shared festival bills & main stages with the likes of Dizee Rascal, The Cribs, Mark Ronson, Supergrass and Ocean Colour Scene.

With Constant tours, gigs, club nights and record releases organised collectively and individually The British Blues Explosion gives a much needed jolt of energy to London’s often flagging grass roots music scene, culminating in this very special evening presenting the very best of this exciting new scence.
