Stomp and Holler / Blues, Live Music

Sat 26Oct
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


Bringing the street sounds and swamps of New Orleans to The Fishpond, Matlock Bath, comes Stomp & Holler as part of their UK theatre tour.


A big, bold festival favourite blues band with a brass section and six singers, the band is led by Oliver Carpenter and Abby Brant (recently on tour with Jasper Carrott) and featuring four British Blues Award nominees, Stomp & Holler pulls together the best Midlands musicians to explode on stage with brass, blues, and a vast array of voices.

The new six-piece creates a muscular sound reminiscent of the floor-filling music of New Orleans, driven by skin-tight rhythm section Chris Lomas (bass) and Martin Ball (drums/percussion) and featuring Abby’s excellent piano playing and Dave Carroll’s exceptional guitar. This is all topped off with Oliver’s forceful stage personality and and British Blues Awards nominated John Sanderson on saxes and flute, Stomp & Holler is bold, brassy and fills the stage with colour.

From the first growl to the last chord they’ll have you stomping and hollering for more as they move from groove to groove and beat to beat, taking you on a musical journey around the swamps, bayous and dancefloors of the blues – all with a real sense of humour.

“This band certainly captures the fun, colour and musical diversity of the New Orleans sound so rarely heard on these shores.”

“The musicianship is unsurpassable, and the songwriting is excellent.”
