Sunday: Four Roses Bourbon Blues Stage: 18:25 – 19:25
The Quireboys have always had a strong blues base. After all, they took their cues from the likes of the Rolling Stones and The Faces. Nobody would argue with their blues tinged credentials, eh? So, it should come as no surprise that the band will be performing blues-oriented versions of their finest moments.
The Quireboys have been part of the fabric of British rock since 1984, and their output has been of a very high quality. From debut album ‘A Bit Of What You Fancy’ in 190 onwards, the band have given us some enticing moments with a string of top songs. In addition, frontman Spike has also delivered up a series of solo albums which have cemented his abiding love for the blues.
The band have been regulars on the UK festival circuit. Over the years, they’ve appeared at virtually every major event during the summer season; let’s not forget that they were on the main stage at Ramblin’ Man in 2015. This follows on from performing through the years at High Voltage, Reading Festival and also at Monsters Of Rock, as well as supporting the Stones in Newcastle, Spike’s home town.
With five Top 40 singles in the UK, and nine studio albums behind them, the Quireboys have the pedigree and vision to lift any crowd. And this present line-up is one of the best in their history. Joining Spike are guitarists Guy Griffin and Paul Guerin, and keyboard player Keith Weir. This is the core of a bad for who it’s always time for a party!
