***BIG CONVOY***

Big Convoy Band

From the ashes of ‘Mat Wale & The Rackets’ and ‘Whiskey Cove’ comes Big Convoy, an Alt. Country band five years in the making. Comprised of singer/ songwriters John Bachelor and Mat Wale and now with an all new rhythm section of Tom Hudson and Joe O’Brien.

If you would have walked into ‘The Green Room’ any time in 2007, you could have found Mat and John playing songs and partying harder than any jobbing unsigned musicians had a right to. In 2012, with a lot of water under the bridge and whole lot of other stuff too, they finally come good on promises made and are in a band together, a year that also saw them release their self titled debut EP which was followed up with 2013′s “Life Is Easy When You Know How” and 2014′s mini album “The First World Problems Of Big Convoy”.

***BOB COLLUM & THE WELFARE MOTHERS***

Bob Collum

Go West, young man, the cry went up of ages past. And they did. Except for one guy, who went East. And that’s Bob Collum, who in trading the prairies for the less fetching plains of Britain’s surly southeast has brought to these shores a tasty, tasteful taste of the music that both he and his native Tulsa, Oklahoma, call home.

In Tulsa, though, where everything is big as all outdoors – even indoors – nothing is done small, so on top of his power-pop influenced take on country music Bob has loaded, in a style akin to that of a pioneer with more cargo than wagon, about every last influence likely to be tried by a feller with a taste for audio adventure.

At the end of the 20th century millions of migrants swarmed America, looking for a better life, freedom, land, that kind of thing. Fast forward a hundred years and some change and one pilgrim name of Collum reverse the trend, arriving on Airstrip One just as the Millennium Bug bites and a troubled but excited world awaited a new hundred and got plenty: a reinvigorated B.C. bent on building upon the fantastic foundation of his first two albums and the formation of a new band.

Early this year, with his band, Bob & Co. – Marianne, Paul, Gareth and Allan to you – are releasing the latest CD, Little Rock that will succeed and excel a series of cult hits that began with ‘97’s More Tragic Songs Of Life.

like Elvis Costello, Collum is able to frame scenes and tell stories with vivid and compelling effect” 9/10 Americana UK

A turn of phrase to rank with Nick Lowe’s, and an instinct for hook and melody mean you’re thinking of the Byrd’s with a country edge to boot.Bucketfull Of Brains

Collum is a lyricist of note, and can turn his hand to heartbreak, pain, love and loss with equal facility, all the time while displaying his penchant for the slightly skewed view of things.Maverick Magazine

***MICKY DENNY***

Micky Denny

Micky Denny stomps out the blues, the reds & the pinks, exhuming Leadbelly, Blind Willie McTell & bootleg Dylan in a one man dynamo. Badass with a banjo & stomp box, Uncle Micky’s Bas-alachian bluegrass belongs in Cecil Sharp’s pantheon, and his original tunes – too new for Mr Sharp’s collection – are not to be missed.

On Saturday February 8th, WagonWheel Presents… heads to The Greystones for the first time in 2014 with a fine double bill featuring The Clench and Bob Collum & The Welfare Mothers to kick off another year there. Support comes from WagonWheel debutant Micky Denny. Advance tickets priced at £4 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/248297 or entry on the night will be £5. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

***THE CLENCH***

The Clench

The Clench deliver whiskey-fuelled, blues-swamp-funk-country rock, to put it in a not very small nutshell. The six piece band caused a bit of a stir on the Sheffield live circuit since unleashing their debut EP ‘Pain Don’t Hurt’ which they since followed up with the acclaimed album ‘Walking In The Devils Tracks’. They aim to make ‘music to ride horses by’ and their sound conjures up images of Western desert landscapes and cowboys. They’ve recently been in the studio working on their next release.

Doesn’t so much buck the trend as fit it with spurs and place JR Ewing’s hat on its head.Sheffield Star

A truly stunning swoon that’d make any red-blooded listener want to canter off into the distance. It’s sexy, sultry and visually evocative. The band’s Western-drenched material is intoxicatingly evocative.” Sheffield Telegraph
