Doors 7.30pm -
delighted to bring this fantastic triple
bill to The Greystones and to welcome
back some old friends and introduce some
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.
& 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

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."

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.
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

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

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.
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:
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
