English rock legends QUIREBOYS featuring Luke Morley (THUNDER) plus WILLIE DOWLING and THE INVISIBLE BAND

£30 adv. // 7pm

Presented by


At the start of every show since the beginning, you’ll hear frontman Spike proclaim ‘WE’RE THE QUIREBOYS AND THIS IS ROCK’N’ROLL’. Everyone knows this is the invitaMon to get the party started, have a great evening of music, clap your hands and stamp your feet. Songs that make you laugh, make you cry and all emoMons in between. Old friends will be there, new ones are made, plus, as is now legendary, you’ll be able to meet the band at the bar.

All the emoMons of a Quireboys show are to be found on the new album ‘WARDOUR STREET’, due for release this coming September 13th via Cadiz Music. There are songs that will make you want to rock’n’roll and there are songs from the heart to make you laugh, love and cry which is fiTng as the album is dedicated to the band’s co-founder and best friend, the legend that was Guy Bailey, who was rock n’ roll personified!

So, who did the Quireboys ask to step in on guitar for the new album and shows this year? Only a legend could grace the posiMon of another legend so who else could they turn to other than their great friend Luke Morley who kindly agreed to help out while Thunder are on hiatus. Luke has also produced the new album.

Following the release of the ‘Jeeze Louise’ single earlier this year which saw the band back to their boozy bar room rock n’ roll best, the Quireboys return with another taste from their new album, the single ‘Raining Whiskey’ which will be released June 21st. The track also features the vocals of ScoTsh singer and songwriMng legend Frankie Miller.

“Let’s cut to the chase, Frankie Miller is the singer’s singer and the songwriter’s songwriter” explains Spike. “Just ask Sir Rod Stewart, Willie Nelson, Elton John, Joe Walsh; the list is endless. Even Ray Charles had a hit with one of his songs!”

“I first met Frankie at the Brit awards in 1993, the year The Faces performed with Bill Wyman on bass” conMnues Spike. “It was both an honour and a shock when Frankie came up to me and congratulated me on the Quireboys’ success and as we got talking we hit it off straight away.”

In 2014 Spike released the album ‘100% Pure Frankie Miller’, a collecMon of Frankie’s songs reimagined by Spike and mutual friends Luke Morley, Simon Kirke, Ian Hunter, Andy Fraser, Bonnie Tyler, Ronnie Wood, Mark Stanway, Tyla Pallas etc.

“There were enough songs to last a lifeMme and I put my heart and soul in to listening to them all. It was an incredible journey into how he wrote songs and how a chorus could become a verse then that chorus become a bridge into another melody over the same chords. How not to over sing, when to over sing but most of all how to write from your heart in the first person and how to write in the third person. So hard to explain.”

“And now, years later, when I was going through the new songs I’d wrigen for the new Quireboys album ‘Wardour Street’ with Luke Morley, he asked whatever happened to the song ‘Raining Whiskey’. I told him I’d never released it and the recording was sMll siTng in Rockfield Studios. We got the tapes from our very good friend Nick Brine who’s mixed the new album and we’ve rerecorded it in a rock’n’roll style we believe the Quireboys fans will love! Obviously the first person to hear the new version of ‘Raining Whiskey’ was Frankie Miller; he loves it and urged us to release it as a single so it’s my honour to present the new single by the Quireboys, featuring Frankie Miller, ‘Raining Whiskey’.

“This album has been both heartbreaking and amazing to make,” summarises Spike. “I know Guy Bailey will be proud of the record, especially having Luke playing guitar and for me to be singing with his favourite vocalist, Frankie Miller. This is for you; I love you Guy x”.
