Bad Influence


Always a great night in store when we have a visit from Crawdaddy favourites, Bad Influence.

Val Cowell is one of the best female vocalists on the circuit and is described as having ‘ a tidal wave of a voice that can take on the mantle of our greatest singers’. Backing Val is the great, road experienced band consisting of Richard Hayes on guitar, Wez Johnson on drums and Peter Stroud (Buddy Whittington Band and ex Peter Green’s Splinter Group), on bass duties.

The band have rightly earned the reputation ‘they always leave their audience handsomely entertained’. They lay down their grounded blues of original songs and covers from major artists such as Bonnie Raitt to Keb Mo, Tom Petty to Fleetwood Mac with hints of country rocking blues.

An added bonus tonight is the guest appearance of Jess Hayes on vocals.

A great night is guaranteed for all. NOT TO BE MISSED!
