Babajack return to Ropery Hall
Babajack, fast becoming one of the most sought after bands on the blues, roots and acoustic circuits in this country and Europe, is playing at Ropery Hall on Friday, March 6.
Their latest album, Running Man, is considered one of the finest albums of its genre to be released in recent years and deservedly won coveted slots in the Top Ten Albums Of The Year in not only Classic Rock but also in Classic Rock Blues and Guitar & Bass magazines
“The band’s brand of blues is contemporary, powerful and acoustic combining great musicianship, passion, energy and charismatic performance to create a different kind of blues and a great show, said Mark Keable of mtm promotions.
“The sound is hard to define. They are inspired by pre-war country blues with roots and folk further ingredients in the mix.”
The band has released four albums in the last five years with each one gaining greater media attention and sales figures from the music loving public as their reputation continues to grow.
“What sets Babajack apart from others is their approach to their music – it is recognisably infused in part by early blues but is in no way bound by that,” Mark continued. “Becky Tate and Trevor Steger are the song writing core of Babajack with Becky bringing roots/funk/African rhythms to the band’s sound and Trevor bringing his own mixture of ‘Punk meets Ry Cooder’ to his slide guitar style and harmonica on his growling homemade ‘Winebox guitars’. Add to this Becky’s beautiful, lyrical vocals and the driving rhythm section of Tosh Murase and Adam Bertenshaw and you have a band destined for great success!”
