Hi all...here's a clip of Robin Hoare with Robin Baker on Bass and Tom Wright on Drums playing their version of Eric Bibb's "In My Father's House".
"Robin is a man for today who sings the blues of today. From the credit crunch to online gambling addictions, he's telling it how it is." earlyblues.com
Two of Sheffield's best blues bands meet up on Wednesday September 14th for a unique night. The Robin Hoare Band and Grey Cooper Blues Experience bring you a blues review show featuring special guests.
The Robin Hoare Band will play classic blues, funky grooves and original songs. The Guitar Magazine describe Robin's guitar tone as "steely" and Henry Yates commented in Classic Rock magazine, he is "not a straight bluesman...but then the best ones never are.".
We're returning to the Tap and Spile, Hungate Lincoln on Friday November 14th. We hope to see you there. In the meantime we are working on bookings for 2015 so watch this space.
Robin and the band are proud to be included in this years line up at CADs. We are sharing the bill with the excellent Amelia Carter Band and Sheffield R&B stalwarts DOSCH. Doors open at 7 but get there early as it will get packed. There's a real ale bar and good vibes aplenty.
The Robin Hoare Band will be returning to Sheffield's Lantern Theatre on Friday October 5th with able support from Bob Bridge playing blues, country and roots music. Expect songs from A Time and Place plus the bands take on material by artists like Albert Collins, John Martin, Richard Thompson and Buddy Guy. Tickets are £10 and are available from www.lanterntheatre.org.uk . Should be a great night at Sheffield's unique small Victorian Theatre. Showtime is 7.45pm. There is a bar at the venue and all ages are welcome.
After five years with us Mr Bassman Danny Fox has moved onto pastures new. So now we’ve been joined by Robin Baker who also plays with the excellent Dead Like Harry. Danny Robinson will still be powering the band along from the drum stool. There will be a slight change of musical direction over the coming months.
There are two new clips of the band on You Tube. Do check them out...

Robin is reunited with guitar sparring partner Stu Arfield and international session bass man Danny Fox to bring vibrant creative blues to the Cricketers Arms, Keighley on Tues June 7th. The gig is part of the Hi Fi Sessions season at the Cricks in association with The Den Hi-Fi's 25th anniversary, Creek, Epos and Custom design. This is an all ticket event and they've mostly gone already. For details see, www.thedenkeighley.co.uk
The band played a great opening set for Aynsley Lister back on March 31st. The show was regarded as a success by all concerned. Lovely venue, great crowd, great crew and staff and Aynsley and his band were throughly nice people. Danny Fox and Danny Robinson surpassed themselves as ever. We look forward to returning there and recommend it highly if you want to see a band there. Thanks to all involved.
It's with some regret that we are passing on the news that the festival has been cancelled due to lack of demand. This is the press release from organisers Brave New Arts;
"A new Blues festival due to take place at Magna on Saturday 30th April for a 3 day period has been cancelled due to poor advance ticket sales and sponsorship. The first year of the festival had received great PR and interest to the international line up but advance ticket sales were unfortunately too slow and the organisers had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event.
