Absent Kelly presents STEVE CRADOCK BAND live at AMERSHAM ARMS 15 AUGUST 2015
Steve Cradock, crosses over the water with his band and steps up for his final London gig this summer at his favourite venue, the Amersham Arms. Headlining this one day event with support from emerging acts hand picked by promoters, Absent Kelly,and featuring not to be missed Slydigs, tricks from the Magic Mod, and DJs, including a set from none other than London’s biggest alternative stations, XFM Radio.
Widely acknowledged as one of the most influential guitarists of his generation, Steve Cradock made his name as the lead guitarist and songsmith of Britpop bigwigs, Ocean Colour Scene. In addition to OCS’s success, he has toured and recorded with the Modfather himself, Paul Weller, for over two decades. You would have thought all this would be enough for one man, but on top of it all, Steve has also found the time to forge a solo career.
Don’t miss your last chance of the summer to see emerging artists influenced by Cradock’s music, as well as Steve himself, shining in his own limelight, backed by his band.
