Rising stars Broken Witt Rebels join us this Friday 29th July, don’t miss it!
In the past few weeks, the buzz around self-released, Birmingham blues rock band Broken Witt Rebels has reached a deafening roar. So much so that the band have rushed out new single GUNS to capitalize on fan driven interest.
It all started when a live version of previous single LOW was uploaded to their Facebook page, within 4 days the video had amassed an impressive 130,000 views. This caught the attention of viral content geniuses Buzzfeed, who invited the band into their offices to play a live streamed gig for their 1.3m strong Facebook group, part of their Music Breaks Series. Just when it seemed like it couldn’t get any better, the GUNS video was elevated to the front page of YouTube. At the time of writing, the video has amassed over 420,000 views in less than one day.
BWR’s bluesy southern tinged swagger has drawn favourable comparisons with Kings of Leon, Alabama Shakes and The Black Keys, while their legendary live shows frequently result in stage invasions with fans rushing the stage in response to the band’s famous shoes off war cry!
Broken Witt Rebels have just made guitar bands exciting again.
Local support from The Jav’lins + The Dead Shoot + Tom McCartney.

The Soundhouse Leicester welcomes back one of the country’s finest singer songwriters John Bramwell to the venue on Friday 21st October!
I Am Kloot’s singer songwriter John Bramwell, returns to the stage this autumn 2016, armed with his first set of brand new songs since the bands UK top ten album ‘Let It All In’ in 2014.
During 2014 the Mercury prize nominated songwriter (Robbed) sporadically turned up at venues in “Any town, anywhere” throughout the UK. Playing a different set every night, trying out stripped down versions of his 100 or so previously released songs. After fifty or so performances of varying length, spontaneity and cohesiveness and armed with a new found confidence in his storytelling abilities, he returned to his new home in Crewe and put the finishing touches to his studio/garage and set about recording new songs for his debut solo single ‘Times Arrow’.
With these recordings ready for release to coincide with the tour and a bag of classic songs and great stories, John Bramwell brings poetry, great guitar playing, a beautiful, unique voice and a little chaos to a town to The Soundhouse once more.
“Arguably the UK’s finest export” – THE NEW YORKER
“Great songs, great voice. The real thing” – TIME OUT
“Utterly compelling, quite beautiful and frequently hilarious” – THE GUARDIAN
Support from Dave Fidler.

After last year’s sell out show we are delighted to welcome back Beans on Toast to The Soundhouse on Wednesday 30th November!
Drunk folk singer, barefoot troubadour and cult legend Beans on Toast will be releasing a new album titled “A Spanner In The Works” which will be released as ever on 1st December with Xtra Mile Recordings.
Although not wanting to go into to much detail at this early stage, Beans has said that as the name suggests this album he’ll be doing things a little differently, but that is all he’s letting on for now.
The Beans on Toast live show is an unique and unpredictable experience. A singer, storyteller and guitar player his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense of equality.
Supporting on the tour will be piano bashing 21st Century Blues duo from Hebden Bridge – Tensheds and the incredible Kansas country singer Sky Smeed.
Tickets go on sale Friday 1st July at 10am.
