Steve Roux & The Brass Knuckle Blues Band

August 11th, 2012

Steve Roux & The Brass Knuckle Blues Band
Event on 2012-10-20 20:00:00

Students ?7 on door only (proof required)

Back in 1993 blues guitarist and vocalist Steve Roux signed a solo recording contract with EMI/Virgins'Pointblank Blues Label by John Wooler. Other blues artists on the prestigious label included: Albert Collins, Johnny Winter, Pop Staples, John Lee Hooker, John Hammond, and Walter 'Wolfman' Washington.

Steve recorded his all original album entitled 'Steve Roux' in Memphis USA at the legendary Kiva Recording Studios. The album was released in 1994 and received critical acclaim across Europe. Gigs and radio sessions followed – a highlight being the Cologne Music Festival in Germany, where Steve was invited onstage by Albert Collins to join him for his encore along with Robben Ford. The trio played an extended version of Alberts instrumental 'Frosty' to an ecstatic crowd. The event was also broadcast live on national radio.

Steve's album is still receiving radio airplay in Australia, South Africa, Germany, Spain, France and the Netherlands.

The White Knuckle Blues Band
In 1997, Steve, along with Bernie Fox (drums) and Rob Vick (bass guitar) formed The White Knuckles Blues Band. This powerhouse band quickly built up a critically acclaimed reputation for playing tough uncompromising blues. The band
have since supported and worked with Sherman Robertson, Wilko Johnson, Bad Influence, Ainsley Lister, Memo Gonzalez, Steve Harvey, The Yardbirds, and The Hamsters.

The White Knuckle Blues Band have recorded two albums 'Raw Knuckles' and 'Can't Change the Time'. In 2003, during the recording of the second album 'Can't Change the Time' the band contacted Procul Harum's Hammond organ player Josh Philips. Josh had played in Steve's live band from the early 90's and he contributed his distinctive sound to a number of the tracks on the CD. Over the following years Josh played on numerous gigs with The White Knuckle Blues Band and this inspired a master plan to put together an augmented line up of the band.

The Brass Knuckle Blues Band
During 2007 Rob and Steve were involved in the formation of another band 'The Sensational Jonny Deps' which included a marvellous horn section comprising of session player Steve Grainger on alto sax, Jon Gooding on tenor sax, and Tom Edwards on trumpet. It soon became clear that this horn section could expand the horizons of the band – and from this The Brass Knuckle Blues Band was formed.

"The Brass Knuckle Blues Band changed the mood with a polished and accomplished set. Albert Kings 'You're Gonna Need Me' worked well with the rousing horn section." (Blues Matters – Blues on the Farm)

"Steve Roux with a pleasantly gruff voice and a blistering fret technique which betrayed the influence of 1960s vintage Eric Clapton." (The Times)

"Most were lifers in the twelve-bar prison but Steve Roux broke out with some much needed delicacy on 'Can't Change The Time'." (Daily Telegraph)

"There can be few bands around with such pedigree… tight as a cylinder-head bolt on Thrust II." (The Venue Magazine)

"The White Knuckle Blues Band were impressive. This was a competent, no frills line up comprising guitar, bass, drums and harmonica?.all well played. It sounded tight and well rehearsed. The vocals and percussion were exceptionally good."
(The Folk & Blues Festival – Review by Bob Long.)
