Part pop, part indie rock, part punk the best comparison is this the band that would be born if you mixed Richard Ashcroft, Supergrass and the Stray Cats together.
“There’s nothing more exciting than playing live. BSR are absolutely thrilled to get back out in the U.K. a wonderful way to round out a great year!” – Ricky Warwick, Black Star Riders.
So many great bands have cut their teeth here and it’s a pleasure to continue to fly the flag high for new, up and coming bands alongside the big names each year

On a day that definitely felt more ‘Kentucky’ than ‘Kent’, the line up across the stages offered more than it’s fair share of southern rock and roll and thanks to another blisteringly sunny day, was all the more welcome for it. A mixed bag of acts that allowed us to travel around a little more and experience the real spirit of Ramblin’ Man Fair 2016.

Fronted by Louis James (son of ex-Moody Blues singer Nicky James), he is ably supported by fireball guitarist Jack Fawdry , solid drumming from Steve Corrigan and what appears to be Justin Hawkins (The Darkness) twin brother in groove laden bass player Aaron Plows. To sum them up easily they could be described as Rival Sons fronted by Robert Plant, such is the strength in James’ vocals. It’s definitely old school, retro fuelled rock ‘n’ roll and the band will certainly make waves in the current music scene given the critics and audiences penchant for this particular style right now.
