Danny Giles + Brett Hutchison + Red ButlerLive on stage 8.30pm

Having spent four years touring, playing to festival audiences and playing packed out club dates all over Europe, the band decided it was time to make a debut record. Deals were offered from the UK, Europe and from as far as the U.S. but the band decided they would pull in their own resources and fund the project independently whilst building a team of influential and equally passionate people around them.
Taking a break from touring, the band went into four weeks of intensive rehearsals and pre-production in late Autumn of 2014, and went in to record their debut album towards the end of September at Stronghold Studios, England. Produced by Pat Garvey, engineered by Gez Walton, and mastered by Ray Staff at Air Studios, London, their much anticipated debut album "MORE IS MORE" hits the streets and World Wide Web in 2016 on Power of Three Records.
Britain has a dynamic new rock trio, one that has cut it’s teeth and is ready to sink them in, and having raised what amounts to a small army of followers with their fierce work ethic over the last few years. The D.G.B. are ready to take on the world and all that comes with it!
RED BUTLER: Dynamic rock/blues band Red Butler is fast making a name for itself across Britain and Europe. Audiences instantly tap into the fire and passion generated by the young band from Sussex.
The band’s journey, since 2012 has seen them through a significant evolution, especially during the past 6 months. Dan Spellman joined Alex Butler (lead guitar) Charlie Simpson (drums) and Mike Topp (bass) during the latter part of 2016 and became lead vocalist following the departure of Jane in December. The tightness of the new line up owes much to the fact that Alex, Charlie and Dan played together as ColdHeat for 4 years from the tender age of 14. Fans, new and old, have been thrilled by the heavier sound coupled with the ever present energy and excitement which are a Red Butler trademark
November 2016 saw the culmination of 18 months preparation with the release of the band’s second album, "Nothing To Lose" produced by Wayne Proctor. This followed the success of their debut release, "Freedom Bound" in 2014. Due to the success of the current line-up, and in response to popular demand, the band will release an EP this summer and are working towards a full album later this year.
"Nothing To Lose" was a collaborative project drawn from the band members’ individual experiences of life and music. Red Butler see the need to deliver a message to younger people whilst retaining the support of their established blues/rock audience, this theme will be further developed as they work on a third electric album. Influences include SRV, Free, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Foo Fighters, Gary Clarke Jr. Royal Blood and Vintage Trouble Touring with the Laurence Jones, Billy Walton and Danny Bryant added enormously to the band’s experience.

The quality of their music has seen Red Butler win national awards. Successes include.

• Alex – runner up in Young Artist category – British Blues Awards 2016.
• Band – third place in Best Blues Band category – British Blues Awards 2016.
• Representing the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Italy 2016.
• Winners of the UK Blues Challenge 2015.
• Runners-up in the British Blues Awards 2015 (Alex, Young Artist and Band, Emerging Artist).
• "Best New UK Act" 2014 – Blues Matters Magazine.

Although busy working on new material the band continue to thrill audiences as they develop a heavier sound whilst preserving the passion and sensitivity that is their style. The presence of Dan on rhythm guitar has generated more space for Alex to express himself and opened up the opportunity for duetting guitars. The onstage chemistry is obvious to audiences and the band is revelling in the experience.
