Description

LIVE AND EXCITING ON FRIDAY 27TH APRIL, it's Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra!

The band play their own unique brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’!

Their debut album, ‘Money Isn’t Everything’, caused a sensation when it was released in 2012, winning a host of rave reviews – many of them 5-star. Their follow up album, “Talk About The Weather” in 2014 also received great radio play and reviews. Throughout 2015 and 2016 the band have continued to show their passion for touring and playing live with multiple SELL OUT shows across the UK and beyond.

Truly an incredible live act who’s songs will stick with you even weeks after!

What the press folk think about them:

Hank did it like this. So did Sinatra. So did Tom Waits. So did John Lee Hooker. Mix these influences with a healthy dose of youthful enthusiasm, a real passion and an ear for detail, sheer authenticity, and a good slug of both Scotch and Bourbon, and you might find that the results are very much to your taste. They are certainly to mine.” Mark Whyatt, Folk Radio

“Newcastle’s finest swing-honkytonk-rockabilly band” – fRoots

“That’s one hot band right there!” – Huey Morgan, BBC Radio 2

“Rob Heron evokes the spirit of Bob Wills and Django Reinhardt with a quintet that shuffles and boogies with panache. Infectiously good-humoured” – Uncut Magazine

“Amazing musicians who play with both passion and a sympathetic regard for the history of the genre.” – Maverick Magazine
