Rocking stages since 2014 Sons of Liberty are the UK's hardest working and most entertaining Southern Rockers ....a band of seasoned musicians from Bristol and South Wales, drawn together by the shared love of the incredible music of the Southern States of America ....and the desire to share it with the people of the UK. An energetic band who deliver a 100% authentic and 100% original show.

After around four years of building a solid reputation as an all-southern-rock covers band, in 2017 a step up was made when the band set out to write and record some original material to reach a wider audience, and also to vent some pent up creativity! The result was the highly acclaimed “....Shinola” EP – five tracks of home-ground hard hitting southern rock 'n' roll. The follow up EP “Aged in Oak” was released in September 2018, and voted #4 “EP Of The Year” by the huge Facebook Group New Wave Of Classic Rock. It also features the single “Damned If You Do” along with five other killer songs!

Since releasing “...Shinola” Sons of Liberty have been gigging regularly across the UK and is building a solid reputation, sharing stages with Skinny Molly (featuring ex-Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blackfoot members), Stone Broken and The Quireboys. Southern rock legend Jay Johnson has even opened up for the band. 2019 has already seen a triumphant performance at the Giants of Rock festival in Minehead, with a fan vote victory securing the band a return Main Stage booking for 2020. Expect more of the same at Four Sticks (London), SOS (Manchester), Crazy Cowboy (Reading) and Hard Rock Hell CROWS (Sheffield, with Molly Hatchet, Jason & The Scorchers, The Kentucky Headhunters etc). 

With the classic twin guitar sound, some down-home harp blowin’, a couple of Stetsons and some battered old snakeskin boots, Sons of Liberty bring the bourbon-fuelled southern rock party to town – Hell Yeah!

Black Whiskey:

The more things change, the more they stay the same..... Over the years the members of Black Whiskey have been involved in genres as diverse as NWOBHM, Thrash Metal, Blues and Prog Rock, but the common ground for these guys is Classic Rock. Yep, there are influences - Zeppelin, Free, Purple, UFO, Scorpions, Lizzy, Rainbow etc – but the songs really are songs, delivered with heart and authenticity, with powerful, soulful vocals and singing blues-soaked guitar, all underpinned by the solid groove of the powerhouse rhythm section. The roots may be entrenched firmly in the classic sounds of the seventies and early eighties but these guys have been involved in diverse styles over the years and on the back of this the music sounds fresh and modern while staying true to the blueprint. Black Whiskey’s first album “Heavy Train” was released in 2015 and received glowing reviews, the follow up is due for release in early 2019 and a number of video singles will be released in the run up to this. This is their debut performance in Bristol.

Trouble County:

Portsmouth power trio Trouble County deliver down n’ dirty, oil stained, groove-driven Southern stoner rock, with an explosive, heartfelt performance that will move your hips and your soul. They draw upon a wealth of live experience including recent support slots with Stone Broken, The Von Hertzen Brothers, The Amorettes etc, and the band have been building their fan base as a result of their dynamic live performances. This is their debut performance in Bristol.
