The Nightporters are credited as being one of the finest bands to have performed on the International roots and blues circuit. Their shows became legendary throughout Europe and for their army of fans, The Nightporters were certainly a "never miss" band whenever they hit town.
2013 will mark 20 years since the band formed and all four original members are looking forward to stunning audiences with their trademark high-energy, rockin' show once more. This will not be a rushed, under-rehearsed approximation of the great band of a decade ago, this will be the real thing; a tight, kick-ass rock'n'roll machine, firing on all cylinders and hungry for a new audience!
