Bad Knees Blues Band

This well known, dynamic blues band has played festivals, pubs and clubs in the South West for 18 years. Playing a mix of original and blues classics,  Richard Pickles leads on guitar, slide and vocals. His son Jonathan on bass and backing vocals and Keith Smallwood on drums provide a rock solid and creative rhythm section. Martin Wheeler on guitar and vocals and Jeremy Doyle on keys complete the band.  Richard began his musical career back in the 1960s when he played with bands touring with and supporting David Bowie, Canned Heat, Free and Derek and the Dominoes. “A great set of rocking blues is guaranteed!”

The Kev Davis Group

This is a new band on the SW music scene, their debut gig was in August 2023. They draw inspiration from that  golden age of British blues/rock during the 1960s & 70s – The Rolling Stones,  Fleetwood Mac, Free, Led Zeppelin plus from across the Atlantic, Albert King, and the Allman brothers help to provide the foundations for a mix of driving rock and grinding blues. Some of their songs reflect Devon’s own rich history!

Followed by a blues jam/open mic session. If you would like to be included, or to find out more, contact Mary Caffrey on
