Souldiggers - a select bunch of session musicians including Sam Kelly (drums), Paul Jobson (keys) and Andy Hodge (bass). ‘Geoff Achison and the Souldiggers’ are destined for great things, so don’t miss out. Come and see them tonight!

Tim Aves & Wolfpack
Veteran Essex frontman Tim Aves has blazed a trail across Europe over the past 35 years, fronting Automatic Slim, The Rockin' Armadillos and now WOLFPACK. Down the years, Tim's blues has been heard worldwide on the airwaves, including several BBC Radio 2 Paul Jones radio sessions. Expect the great songs of Howlin' Wolf, plus Tim's own tunes - all served up with remarkable virtuosity, formidable energy and a plus-sized slice of 21st-century Essex attitude! Entertainment with a capital E!

Martin McNeill
Martin demonstrates his virtuosity on slide guitar and has been described as: ‘One of this country’s finest bottleneck blues guitarists’, by Stephen Foster of the BBC. A long-term resident of Colchester, Martin now lives in Southend where he is called upon to play at and organise jam sessions right across Essex and into Kent. He’d love to see some of his old mates again.
