This Thursday (August 4th) we have a real treat for you at the Bullfrog
Blues Club, at The Dockyard Club), Onslow Rd, Southsea, Portsmouth, PO5
2NH, when top Anglo/Belgian blues band Steelyard are playing. 

Based in Belgium, Steelyard have played most of the top blues clubs in
mainland Europe. Originally founder members Steve Fuller and Sara Cotton
performed as a very successful duo, and shared stages with many top blues
performers including The Yardbirds,Connie Lush, Lightning Willie, Nimmo
Brothers, Angela Brown, Kosmic Blue, Sherman Robertson, Johnny Sansome,
Mike Sanchez many more 

The success of the duo led to a decision to add musicians and form a four
piece band, and now Russ Hawley is on drums and Max Harrison's on bass
guitar. The band has proved to be as every bit as successful as the duo.
Sara Cotton fronts the band on vocals and guitar, and is equally as adept
on saxophone and keyboards. 

The band have supported Spencer Davis, Little Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker
Junior and they recently played the main stage with Robert Cray and Shirley
King (B.B. King's daughter) at the Luxembourg Blues Express 2015.
They've also played equal billing with Germany's top Blues band The East
Coast Experience and leading Dutch blues band.Living Blues. 

The band's influences include Janis Joplin, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Led
Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, The Allman Brothers,  Rory Gallagher,  and many
