Chaz and Dave - have been friends since the early sixties and began writing and performing songs together in 1972
They reached the top twenty in 1979 with ‘Gertcha’, which became a nationwide catchphrase. This was followed by ‘The Sideboard Song’ (Got my Beer in the Sideboard Here). In 1980 they hit the charts with ‘Rabbit’, which reached No. 8 and a No. 2 record in 1982 ‘Ain't No Pleasing You’. This was followed by further hits ‘Margate’ and ‘London Girls’ and in 1986 they had a top six record with ‘Snooker Loopy’
They have also written title songs for TV shows, ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ and ‘Only Fools & Horses’
Now celebrating their 50th Anniversary by recording their first original album in 27 years, a mixture of vintage rock & roll songs and new renditions of their own rockney classics. There new album also features special guests, the likes of; Jools Holland, Buddy Holly's drummer Jerry Allison and Hugh Laurie
Over the years, Chas & Dave have gained a cult following - 'young and old' and due to their timeless popularity they are about to be seen together on stage once more.
Lucy Spraggan - the 21-year-old singer songwriter has already impressed X Factor judges, Radio 1 DJs, festival organisers across the world and Columbia Records, who recently signed her to their roster. What makes her such a valued artist to this many industry heavyweights? Her quest for truthful music that deeply connects, wherever and whoever you are, that’s what.
You may recognize the name. Last year, Lucy Spraggan took to the X Factor stage in front of 4,000 jeering audience members. Her performance was a sharp slap around the face for anyone watching; after reams of sob stories and off-key balladeering, Lucy arrived, performed an original song and made the entire audience smile. It was the start of a new chapter, but that’s just one part of her story.
In her two decades of existence, Lucy’s been in rap groups, worked as a magician, trained as a plumber, travelled across America, been a tour guide in a cave, fallen from a cherry picker and had ‘Olly Murs’ tattooed onto her foot. She even studied Buddhism in Scotland. But now she’s ready to focus on music; her new album, a fusion of acoustic, folk and hip hop, is a collection of songs that’ll one minute bring you to tears, and the next make you feel like a fool for being so emo.
The Spellkasters - during the nineties drummer Romek Parol and bassist BJ Anders spent most of their time sharing studios and stages with Mick Green under the flag of The Pirates. They recorded two albums, a couple of singles and toured Scandinavia and Europe extensively including a few shows with ZZ Top by their personal invitation.
Towards the end of that decade Mick went on to play with Van Morrisson and Paul McCartney whilst Romek and BJ pursued their own projects mostly with British ‘guitar slingers’ ... Eric Bell, Stan Webb, Ray Majors, Huw Lloyd Langton, Ray Minhinnett ... to name but a few.
BJ built his own studio in Sweden and recorded & produced records for many Swedish bands and also his own, successful projects. Romek, meanwhile, produced some extremely varied music for major record labels and publishing houses and in late 2007 returned to working live with Eric Bell of Thin Lizzy and later with Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack .
A chance meeting with guitarist Pete Edmunds in early 2013 led to a few studio sessions and it became apparent that a new project – a stomping RN’B band - was the way forward ... Romek called BJ and asked him if he fancied re-kindling the Pirates flame and putting a good, old fashioned British R’nB band together ... BJ nodded his head in agreement and thus The Spellkasters were born ...
Pete, Romek and BJ met over a lengthy Sunday lunch in Wales in May 2013 and the decision was taken to cut an album in BJ’s studio in Helsingborg, Sweden.
By the end of June the album was ready and in the can. On the menu, driven by the influences of The Pirates, DR.Feelgood, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Wilco Johnson and the like, is a mix of new, uncut material with some old ‘childhood’ favourites. Record executive Peter Purnell offered the band a deal to release it on his label, Angel Air Records, and the release date of Kastin The Spell is set at 10th February 2014 in the UK ..... closely followed by Europe, USA and Japan.
If you like your Rn’B noisy, fast and furious look out for The Spellkasters ... coming to blow the doors and windows out of a venue near you !!!!!
