The Chris Bevington Organisation
Founded in 2014 by Chris Bevington, heavily influenced by the likes of Robert Cray, Walter Trout and Eric Clapton, they recorded their first album receiving great acclaim and hitting the UK blues charts.
Since then they have gone from strength to strength with a nine-piece line-up of Jim Kirkpatrick, Paul Burgess (drums), Scott Ralph (guitar/vocals), Adrian Gibson (trumpet), Mike Yorke (saxes) and vocalists Kate Robertson and Sarah Miller. Expect to hear hard-hitting blues played with gusto and humour by this talented group of musicians.
Birmingham-based Rebecca and her band are a “must see” live act that often leaves newcomers simply blown away by the power of the performance.
With her co-writer Steve Birkett alongside her, a very tight band behind, and Rebecca”s powerful voice to the fore, the 5-piece outfit performs original rock/blues tracks from the EP Real Life, the highly-acclaimed debut album Back To The Start and the superb second album Believe, punctuated by one or two classic covers. Rebecca was voted Female Vocalist and Emerging Artist of the Year at the British Blues Awards 2016 and Female Blues Vocalist of the Year in the FORM UK Blues Awards 2018.
