The Spikedrivers

Spikedrivers - 500x700.jpg

Tonight sees the return of one of the club’s favourite acts, and one of the most original, innovative and exciting bands around, The Spikedrivers combine gutsy slide guitar with rock-solid bass, infectious grooves and highly distinctive vocals to create a sound that is uniquely their own.

They take you on a journey from Southern juke joints and lazy front porches to the huge open spaces of dust bowls and railroad tracks.

The band are Ben Tyzack, born in London but raised in the deep South of the USA, whose guitar playing is a blend of Robert Johnson raw blues and the powerful soundscapes of Jimmy Page. On vocals and bass guitar is Constance Redgrave, born in Los Angeles and now living in London. Completing the line-up is drummer and vocalist Maurice McElroy, born in Belfast, who came to London during the 60’s Blues and Soul boom.
