Dont Tell Johnny

Don’t Tell Johnny” is an acoustic folk band from South Wales that play a range of acoustic styles from folk /blues to Americana. The band have been playing together for more   than eight years and have played many venues in Wales and the South West, receiving much acclaim for their music and performances. They perform cover versions of many well known and popular songs, as well some beautiful but not so well known tunes. The band have also released an album of their own material, copies of which will be on sale on the day.

The Blues Happenings

The Blues Happenings is a Bristol based band specialising in soulful, vintage blues. Strong grooves and lush harmonic vocals come together to create catchy, danceable blues.

Fronted by a female vocalist, backed by a double bass, guitar and drums, they have two feet firmly planted in the musical past – playing songs from the 40s, 50s and 60s with the occasional nod to more modern tunes – all played in their own unique, classic blues style.

The band members bring their eclectic love of old blues, jazz and soul to re-interpret and play well known and well-loved classics along with more obscure forgotten gems. Influences include Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Howlin Wolf, BB King and other classic blues and Motown songs from the golden era of music.

The Blues Happenings specialise in playing for blues dancing groups and events – putting down a solid groove for dancers to follow with short, catchy tunes that don’t out-stay welcome – providing dancers with a steady rhythm and variety of tempos to show off their moves on the dance floor.

So step up, grab your dancing shoes and let the good times roll!
