Band to Join.


All my current activity is relaxed and involves working with friends, local musicians, all play in or for other bands and some are tour musicians.
As a full time singer/musician/song writer I am very interested in working with other musicians, as long as there is some real commitment to quality. I am looking for a band to work with playing covers and or original songs, would be happy to be part of a unit- play or sing, the more variety the better - something that has a wide/general appeal that can play a variety of venues would be nice.

Over the past 37 yrs I have worked in a number of bands, both full time and in conjunction with a professional business career. In the last 5 yrs I have worked mainly solo as well as singing with a couple of established blues/light rock bands both has and when they had work.

I Established Hopsons Kaffee - Guitar Legends Show in 2018 - video & media - Launched at The Musician in Leicester (we are playing there again on July 4th 2019) we are a 5 piece band with a dedicated stage show, celebrating the music of five Great Guitar Legends Eric Clapton,Peter Green, Gary Moore, Paul Kossoff & Jeff Beck website (Videos also available on YouTube) simple search for Hopsons Kaffee. The Show works very well, however is quite a specialist performance and has to be staged as such.

Within the unit there is also an acoustic trio "Hopsons Kaffee Light" which is a more relaxed offering playing mainly acoustic well established R & B and Country covers + original songs - again works well, see more video available on YouTube search for Hopsons Kaffee.
Hopsons Kaffee is a unit of working musicians - working a diary -not a defined band.

As a songs writer I am always looking for people to collaborate with! the Genre has no boundaries - some light original studio demos listed here 'song' - "Multi Coloured Dreams" has recently had 9 national radio plays in the USA which lead to requests for more songs of a similar nature."Give Me One More Whiskey" is being worked by a UK artist and the Rosie Baker version of "Please Come Home" is currently being viewed by a "Help The Hero's" variety company

I would love to hear from you! Please Email me via Bandmix, very happy to talk band, music, songs etc with anyone - look forward to hearing from you. "all the best"!!

Selecting a few is very difficult, years of singing, playing, listening & working in and around the entertainment industry I have been influenced by so many different genre, so many great bands & artists. So going for the ones I enjoy the most rather than influence as there are are a lot :- Chuck Berry -Eric Clapton – Peter Green – John Mayall – BB King – Albert King – Muddy Waters – Robert Johnson – Gary Moore – Paul Kossoff, (Jeff Beck Rod Stewart days) Otis Redding – Sam Cooke - Rod Stewart – Steve Wonder – Elvis Presley – Rye Cooder – Keith Urban – Garth Brooks – Brad Paisley – Steve Earl
Bands:- Everley Brothers, Rolling Stones – Beatles – Cream - Led Zeppelin – C S N & Y – The Eagles - Lynyrd Skynyrd – Allman Brothers – Doobie – Lady Antebellum – Sugar Land – Drifters - and finally must add Status Que as they have to be one of the most 'fun' rock bands of all time! Finally a Young Band from Scotland called Ashton Lane who’s song writing and performances I really enjoy.
