Doors 7.30pm - Show 8.00pm


We are delighted to bring this fantastic triple bill to The Greystones and to welcome back some old friends and introduce some new.

Greystones favourite Warner E Hodges returns after a number of sell-out shows at the venue with Jason & The Scorchers, Dan Baird and Homemade Sin and with the Warner E Hodges band. He will bring his unique humour and rock n' roll bombast and with his special blend of supreme guitar tone and licks - and off-the-scale guitar slinging - as only he knows how.

"Jason & The Scorchers are musical pioneers... generation after generation have fallen under this sing-songy definition of success in one way or another. But Jason and the Scorchers embodied all three prongs of the hypothesis. They were punk. They were country. They were rock… most of all, they were originals."  

- Americana Music Association


"there is absolutely no question that Hodges plays dirty, loud guitar better than many of his better-known contemporaries. With his heart so obviously in loud rock and roll and with blazing performances under his wing... to see Warner E. Hodges on stage is to see him at his best."

- Penny Black Music

Webb Wilder - electrifying artist and last of the full-grown men - returns to the venue after playing his hugely successful solo show last year, one of only a handful of UK dates after a break of over 20 years.

Before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Nashville, there was Webb Wilder... Rock ’n’ roll, from Nashville. Formed from Mississippi mud, tinged with British mod. Bruised by the blues. Baptized by Buck and Chuck. Psychiatric psycho-rootsy. Sizzling, glistening, uneasy listening. As it has been for three decades, it is now and ever shall be.

"Americana Idol - Webb Wilder, Nashville's wildest, weirdest export, is actually kind of normal. Kind of. He has a deep Mississippi accent that cuts thru psychedelic power chords, singing with the kind of charisma that makes listeners want to buy whatever he's selling. One of a kind? Hell, this guy is a rock music Sasquatch. Only he's real."

- Nashville Scene

"If Webb Wilder and his band are passing within 300 miles of your town, don't miss them!"

- Vintage Guitar Magazine

For this dynamic triple bill we also welcome Eric Ambel. Singer / guitarist / songwriter Eric Ambel is no knucklehead. He is many other things: an alumnus 1980’s roots-punk band The
Del-Lords; member of both Steve Earle’s band the Dukes and cheerful hell raisers the Yayhoos; running buddy of the Skeletons and the Bottlerockets’ leader of his own cool crew, Roscoe’s Gang. He is also a renowned producer with a who’s who of exemplars (among them: Nils Lofgren, Bottle Rockets, the Backsliders and Marshall Crenshaw) and known to the the world and his friends as Roscoe.

"Lakeside... is just what the doctor ordered. This could be appreciated by any sixty-year-old veteran rock lover or it could be consumed flesh and bones by some young teenage garage guitar addict who can’t get enough of what today’s music does not have: attitude. "

- No Depression

This show will be a fantastic night of Americana in the intimate Backroom of The Greystones. Warner will play a mix of lead and rhythm guitar with a core band, including Sheffield's own hero Andy Dye on bass (The Fargo Railroad Co.), providing the engine room for all three artists across the evening.
