PONDLIFE PRESENTS: Stomp and Holler / Blues, Live Music

Fri 31Jul
7:30 PM

Note: This event has finished


Bringing the street sounds and swamps of New Orleans to Festivals and theatres of the UK comes Stomp & Holler.

A big, bold festival favourite blues band with a brass section and six singers, the band is led by Oliver Carpenter and featuring two 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, featuring Dave Carroll’s exceptional guitar and Phil Bond on piano (both ex-Steve Gibbons Band) and the jazz-tinged saxes and flute of John Sanderson, the band is driven by skin-tight rhythm section Frank Walker (bass) and Toby Wilson (drums/percussion) and all topped off with Oliver’s forceful stage personality. 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.”
