Brave Rival have played for us before and were a resounding success. On this basis it was only right to get them back in 2023
They released their debut critically acclaimed album “Life’s Machine” to rave reviews. Classic Rock described them as a cross between Heart and Tedeschi Trucks. Their songs have been featured on Joe Bonamassa’s Radio show where he informed listeners that they were “his favourite discovery of the the year”
They were Nominated for a UK blues award in the Best Emerging Artist category and took part in the 2022 UK Blues Challenge.
At the Butlins Skegness Rock and Blues Festival in January 2022 they won the Introducing Stage vote and therefore played the mainstage at the 2023 festival.
They have toured the UK as the headline act (selling out many venues) and also support for Dom Martin, Laurence Jones and Corky Laing of Mountain fame.
