Catfish

CATFISH is a relatively new Sussex based blues band who are making waves on the southern blues circuit.

The band comprises of Paul Long on keyboards and vocals, his son Matt Long on guitar, Kevin Yates on drums, and "Dusty" Bones on bass. Paul also plays with the well established Riotous Brothers, whilst Kevin and Dusty are veterans of many fine blues bands over the years.

Matt , who at just 20 years old is proving to be an up and coming guitar genius -definitely one to watch. He's already supported British Blues Award winners Aynsley Lister and Chantel McGregor.

The band supported the Micky Moody Band at Coolham Hall in October 2014 - here's a review...

"Catfish oozed confidence from the opening chords of `Little By Little'. In Matthew Long, Catfish have a major talent in their midst, He played with a power passion and feel that are beyond his years. Dad Paul Long dazzled on keys and vocals and the rhythm section of Dusty Bones (bass) and Kevin Yates (drums) held it all together"

Catfish have just released their CD "So Many Roads" (.Nigel Foster, "Blues In Britain")

Chris King Robinson Band

www.chriskingrobinson.com/

2003 Chris King Robinson’s musical career may have started at age 9 when he got hold of his first Fender Stratocaster, but his love of the blues began at a much earlier age; growing up listening to guitar legends such as: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix & Buddy Guy etc.

Fast forward to 2011 when after 1000’s of hours were spent learning his craft and dozens of clips uploaded to YouTube, Chris was awarded the accolade of being one of the top undiscovered guitarists worldwide by the acclaimed international music photographer Robert Knight; who in partnership with guitar manufacturer Fender was searching the globe to find the next great guitarist.

In 2013, Chris’ online popularity began to soar, after gaining millions of hits on YouTube he quickly established himself as Twitter’s most followed blues guitarist worldwide, such interest encouraged Chris to self- produce and release his first single entitled: ‘Lipstick On Her Cigar’. On the 20th November the single hit No.1 on the iTunes &Amazon Blues charts, after just one day of sales.

In 2014, huge public demand for live performances led Chris to form his own 4-piece group: ‘The Chris King Robinson Band’ which quickly gained recognition as one of the most exciting live bands in the country.
