This Weekend at The Musician: Sat, Hell's Addiction / Sun, Wild Willy Barrett

Saturday 20th April
Hell's Addiction: Album Launch
plus The Black What? Nothing and Black Room Fiasco
Hell's Addiction deliver classic no-bullshit rock 'n' roll in a style that draws comparison with the likes of AC/DC, Guns N' Roses and Mötley Crüe.

Expect powerful live perfomances, gritty vocals, screaming Marshall stacks, thundering bass and powerhouse drumming.

Crowd-pleasers like 'Let The Good Times Roll', 'Feels like Rock 'n Roll' and the debut single 'Alcohol' will leave you under no illusion as to where the band's passions lie. Look out for the release of the album 'Raise your Glass' early in the new year - it's an absolute stormer.

"Hell's Addiction have packed a rock n roll punch so forceful that it will leave you wondering which decade you’re in." - Home Grown Rock

Sunday 21st April
Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection
£7adv £9door
Buckinghamshire’s very own eccentric musician Wild Willy Barrett, best known for his collaboration with John Otway, introduces his own band - Wild Willy Barrett’s French Connection.

Their original blend of material covers a wide range of genres (including folk, acoustic blues, Latin, traditional French, Irish and bluegrass), played on instruments as diverse as guitar, cello, banjo, fiddle, Irish pipes, balalaika, whistles and drums.

But there’s more: Willy has been working in France for the last year with French singer Mary-Laure, where the talented multi-instrumentalist has been putting together a new set with jazz-jive and country rock influences. Inspired by Parisian Mary-Laure’s stunning vocals, which add a touch of ‘chic’ and real warmth to the ensemble, Willy says he is undergoing a musical metamorphosis and this is reflected in his playing.

If you are looking for a group within a set genre performing covers, forget it. However, if you are looking for a truly original performance full of fun, dry humour and the unexpected, with toe-tapping fiddle and banjo interspersed with haunting vocals, cello and guitar – see you there!
