The features band at this month’s 15 Minutes of Fame at Stoker’s Siding is Federal Blues Inc.
Federal Blues is a Crewe based Electric Blues band. Band members Stuart Beresford who sings and plays guitar, James Thorley on lead guitar, Geoff Jones on bass and Dave Thorley on drums, formed just last year after a chance meeting in Custom Amps between Stuart and James who realised they had a love of the blues in common.
The band was soon put together with the addition of Geoff and Dave – their influences are the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout and Stevie Ray Vaughan. With a love of early blues and empathy for those who played it, the band strives to bring the music up to date without losing its soul.
The Blackboard Act lineup for the next 15 Minutes of Fame is: Susanne and David, Mark Young and Bob, Barbara Brewster, Johnathan, James Webb and Loki DeJagger.
