as once sang one of the great bands in the sky. It’s been long enough for 272 WagonWheel Presents… shows, the most recent of which was a fine evening in the company of Paul Littlewood, E.R. Thorpe, Anytown and Rory Cannon at Shakespeares last night. Thanks to them and all who joined us.

Year eleven begins coincidentally enough on Friday November 11th when we’re joined in the Bard’s Bar by Roaming Son, The Sea Whores and Tom Baxendale. Full details for this show can be found here. We hope to see you there too.

a bad way to spend a Sunday, was it? Thanks to everybody that came out to our Tramlines show at Shakespeares yesterday. Was nice to see lots of faces around for most (and some for all) of the day. We’re pretty sure you all enjoyed it as much as we did. Big thanks of course as well to The Fargo Railroad Co., Stoney, The Payroll Union, Paul McClure, Walton Hesse, Tom Baxendale, Coma Girls, Boss Caine, The Ragged Edge, David Venn, The Clench, Bob Collum, The Sea Whores and Roaming Son for the fine entertainment. 2017 would have a lot to follow…

WagonWheel Presents… regular shows are here all year round though and we return to The Greystones on Wednesday August 3rd in the company of Curtis Eller’s American Circus. Those lovely Silver Darlings will be along to open the show too. You can find full details here. Maybe we’ll see you then too?

was one Tweet describing last night’s show. We’d be hard pressed to disagree. We enjoyed two delightful sets from Austin Lucas and Adam Faucett (that voice!) at Shakespeares last night. Magic is absolutely the right word. Thanks to Austin, Adam, and all who came along including music lovers from Edinburgh, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester plus even a few from Sheffield too.

We’ll be in the Bard’s Bar again on Sunday April 17th with a solo show from Curtis Eller. Before that though, WagonWheel Presents… returns to The Greystones on Tuesday March 15th. Rachel Ries comes back to Sheffield with brand new EP Cardinal plus there’s support from Tom Baxendale and Yellowcake. The full preview for this show can be read here. Advance tickets can be bought here.

Maybe see you then?

On Friday November 11th, WagonWheel Presents… welcomes back three of the acts from this Summer’s Tramlines show for another fine triple bill at Shakespeares. After opening July’s gig with their acoustic set, Roaming Son return in full electric 100% rock ‘n’ roll form, and with new records in tow will be The Sea Whores and Tom Baxendale. Advance tickets priced at £4 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/373072 or entry on the night will be £5. Doors open 8pm.




Roaming Son are a four piece band from Sheffield. They draw influences from the sounds of the earliest raucous rock ‘n’ roll bands of the 50’s, but adding a distinct sound that is refreshingly modern. They have honed their live show supporting bands such as Kat Men, Big Boy Bloater, Dan Baird & Homemade Sin, Warner E. Hodges, Jason & The Scorchers to name a few. Expect jungle drums, dirty twangy slapback guitars, greasy bass and vocals that range from heartfelt to lowdown and earthy.

In 2013 the band released debut EP ‘History Of Violence’ and were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the Sheffield Scenester awards. In 2015 they released their latest EP ‘Blood On My Hands’.

All the way from some mysterious corner of Yorkshire…. The Sea Whores build a cinematic musical landscape of old world folk songs lost at sea and modern mysteries of doomed love, lust and obsession.

Mayhem, murder, madness and a rare cock-eyed view of bawdy ballads, all accompanied by steel guitar, banjo and fiddle creates a brand of lo-fi junkyard skiffle that makes their musical details reassuringly the same, yet completely different to all others, with brooding atmosphere, dark humour and kinetic energy flowing through this rusty old time fairground ride of a band. Holy, dark and Royal; hold onto your hats!





Sheffield based singer/songwriter Tom Baxendale, former front man of the now dissolved Rainy Day Club and current lead guitarist of The Payroll Union, is a prolific songwriter who takes elements of country, folk, new wave, rockabilly & pop to create a distinctive sound of his own. Tom has recently released his debut solo album In The City A Short Time Ago to rave reviews.

that you get to hear a discarded Led Zeppelin song found abandoned in a skip in Walkley. That happened at Shakespeares last night though. Maybe you had to be there. Thanks to Tom Baxendale, House Of Charms, The Clear and Anytown for a fine evening’s music.

We’ll be back in the Bard’s Bar on Wednesday May 6th. Cale Tyson, Canyon Family and Luke Whittemore will be there too (there’s a full preview here). Maybe we’ll see you as well?
