Lewis Hamilton & The Jensen Interceptors on Sat 1st June 2013
Well, where to begin with this awesome double header featuring Lewis Hamilton and The Jensen Interceptors.
The JOCKS JUKE JOINT Albums is one of the mechanics for a guid few live sessions up and down the country right now, bringing the featured artists on the albums to venues so you can fully appreciate their music live. These gigs are not to be missed and that includes this one !
This is the first of many at Dreadnoughtrock that will do just that in 2013 and 2014 and will be well worth coming along.
Lewis & the lads are no strangers to the Dreadnought having cut their teeth so to speak in early 2011 on our live stage to just a handful of people, has proved over the following years he is a future star in the making with some truly unique performances. They have continued to build gig after gig a very good following in the area increasing audiences willing to come and listen to what this teenage Rock blues guitarist backed up by an awesome Bassist and drummer has to offer.
Since their formation in September 2010, this family power trio has gone on to become one of the fastest rising bands on the Scottish circuit. They have been booked for over 180 gigs in this time including festivals all over Scotland, from the Dundee Blues Bonanza to the Shetland Blues Festival. In addition to
providing cracking re-arrangements of some blues/rock classics they are prolific writers of their own material.
19 year old Lewis has released two albums to date, Gambling Machine and Empty Roads. Gambling Machine won this the 'Best Jazz/Blues Recording' category at this year’s Scottish New Music Awards, while I Got To Know from the album won a preliminary nomination in the British Blues Awards song writing category. Candlelight & Sympathy from Empty Roads will feature on the soundtrack of a new feature film 'Scar Tissue', due for release towards the end of 2012.
Lewis has found himself sitting at or near the top of the Scottish Reverb Nation blues charts for months now, and his name spreading fast around the UK music scene with features in Blues Matters and other music magazines. The band have been booked for over 250 shows from Carlisle to Orkney and appeared at some of the UK’s biggest blues festivals, including Hebden, Maryport and Shetland. Lewis has also appeared on stage with several top musicians including Henrik Freischlader and Alan Nimmo.
The Jensen Interceptors are a Five piece Rock blues band from out with the Lothian's but have a really strong following and a firm grasp on the Scottish Rock and Blues scene themselves.
Their truly unique sound is a pleasure to listen to and although may seem a little laid back bring an explosive live performance to every gig they perform at.
Have a listen to the lads but more importantly get along and listen Live in this Ticket special.
