The Robbie Cavanagh Band and Cry Baby and the Hoochie Coochie Boys
The Robbie Cavanagh Band
Robbie Cavanagh and his Band have been setting the UK alight with their own style of music. A self-confessed devotee of ‘Real Music’, Robbie is not defined by genres, only by good music, top-draw musicians and performances oozing with emotion. Robbie Cavanagh writes and performs with stark honesty and passion. His beautiful lyrics and flawless, soulful vocals, along with his incredible live performances, never fail to turn heads.
His band is one of ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’s favourite bands and this year, it was awarded his ‘Emerging Artist Award’ at the Americana Music Association Awards Ceremony.
Robbie and his band have made their way onto many UK festival stages, including Black Deer, Maverick, Blue Dot, Cornbury, Wilderness, Buckle and Boots, and Silverstone Woodlands. They have performed in the UK, Europe and USA alongside such artists as Jarrod Dickenson, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Deslondes, The Wandering Hearts, Beth Nielson Chapman, Mary Gauthier, Jaimee Harris, Robert Vincent, James House, Ferris & Silvester, Wildwood Kin, Max Jury, Whitney Rose, Amelia White and Jace Everett. Robbie currently has two full-length records available on all streaming platforms and which are also available in physical form, as well as a new live EP.
Award winning Cry Baby and The Hoochie Coochie Boys are a fabulous high energy 5-piece Rhythm and Blues band based in and around the Potteries area who specialise in delivering quality live performances. They are heavily influenced by 1950’s Chicago Blues, which they skilfully blend with British Blues, to give remarkable live gigs that never fail to make you want to dance. Their own musical ability and sheer enjoyment of the high quality music they perform shine through in every performance. Since forming in 2008 they have developed a major NW fan base and set of followers. They perform in Festivals and clubs both in the NW and further afield. In 2017 they released their second Album ‘I got News’ which received critical acclaim and reached No 3 in the IBBA charts and considerable radio air time.
