Band details:  . . . 

The Ben Mills Band
Kent based Ben Mills shot to fame after coming third on series three of the X Factor in 2006. On first hearing Ben sing Simon Cowell said "it has been a long, long, long time since I have heard someone of your age sing an R & B classic like that!"

The Old Avengers

The Bad Bandits

Groove Zoo
(PiF: I think I know which band this is . . . I'll add details when I'm sure)


Triple British Blues Award nominees Catfish have played many major blues festivals and had a no 1 album in the IBBA blues airplay charts.

Shedload of Love
7 piece band from Southeast London...
Horns, Harmonies, Harmonicas and the occasional washboard... 

Paul Astles plays rhythm Guitar and forgets the words (only sometimes)... Les Morgan plays Drums in between roll ups... Brian Foley, the only Geordie in the group, lethal on the Sax- dead handy with a Washboard - and providing the BV's at the same time... Martin Brown on the Telecaster electrical guitar with very expensive yet 'correct' plastic knobs on it... Rick Batey plays bass, guarding the lower frequencies... Garry Walsh plays his little red organ using only 9 fingers at a time coz 'using 10 is showing off innit?' And Mick Paice on bird facts, Harmonica, saxophone and Binoculars.
