An evening of two of the best new rockin' blues bands in the country.

Lee Ainley's Blues Storm Already renowned on the local circuit for their very eclectic take on “the blues”, Lee Ainley’s Blues Storm took the opportunity of a gig at London’s iconic 100 Club in October 2017, supporting “Marcus Malone” to take things a step further and debut their first original material.
Having made a great impression with the promotion company Solid Entertainments, they were invited in January 2018 to support “The Brew” on their UK tour, kicking off at the Komedia Brighton. The response to their original material has been phenomenal, with regular plays from Blues Corner KBC radio, Still got the blues on Zetland FM and Rock & Blues show with Pete Feenstra on my rock radio. Their debut EP “shoot me down” having made the IBBA most played artists top 40 for February 2018.
The band is unique in that it has joint mother/daughter lead vocals of Lee and Tori. Tori and Elliot (lead guitar) are the youngest members of the band at only 18. Their original material draws on a wide range of influences taking in Bonnie Raitt, through BB, Freddie and Albert King and on to the likes of Etta James and Aretha Franklin, plus modern influences from the likes of Rival Sons, Temperance Movement, Texas Gentlemen and Tedeschi Trucks.


Brent Hutchinson Band - Brent Hutchinson is one of the hardest working, up and coming Blues Rock musicians today. Inspired by Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Gary Moore to name but a few. 2017 has seen Brent and his band hit the ground running,opening for Stevie Nimmo, Mike Zitto, Danny Knowles, as well as their own headline shows and festivals, such as Blues at Barleylands, Woodsbury Blues Fest and coming up The Upton Blues Festival. His shows are always electrifying and this is one performance you will want to say 'I was there that night', definitely not to be missed.

It's a beautiful listed building on two floors combining the best of old and new Brighton. On the walls downstairs is a magical Paris skyline painted by Lisa Dickson, which creates an unforgettable bohemian, Moulin Rouge effect and everyone from Amy Winehouse to The Kooks has graced the stage.

Upstairs the restaurant bar has a glorious skylight and is cool and spacious. Both floors have full PA and lights. It's only 50 yards from the pier practically on Brighton seafront and holds 200 people. Unlike most other venues it is available on Fridays and Saturdays. It's the perfect party venue.
