Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Chester Blues, Rhythm and Rock Festival 2 will be taking place at The Live Rooms on Saturday, 17th October.

To build on the success of last years festival, the line-up in 2015 had to be even more special, so with Geno Washington headlining and five other top acts stepping on stage; it will most definitely be a festival to remember and one not to miss!

Geno Washington is a legend of the 60’s Soul, R & B and Northern Soul scenes and one of the greatest frontmen from the latter half of the 20th century.  His hugely charismatic presence on stage and love of performing, makes him an inspiration and a joy to witness . . . it’s not surprising that two of the biggest selling UK albums of the sixties were his live albums!

On his performance at Durham Blues Festival in June this year, Mick Burgess of The Chronicle wrote “ Washington was the perfect headliner, with his imposing frame and huge personality he brought a real vibrance to the whole day”

With an international flavour, this year’s full line-up comprises of:

Geno Washington – his standing in the music business is epic and almost 50 years on, his reputation as a live performer is still unsurpassable!

Connie Lush and Blues Shouter – Connie is recognised as one of our finest Blues singers, winning “Best Female Vocalist UK on five occasions!

Erja Lyytinen – is Finland’s current Queen of the Slide Guitar and is enjoying her own ground breaking career as a contemporary blues artist!

Matt Woosey – a refreshing musical song writing and playing style that combines acoustic blues, folk and rock conveyed with an accomplished vocal delivery!

The Riotous Brothers – there’s something here for those who demand that their blues is packed into eight or twelve neat bars!

The Rainbreakers – are a four piece rock outfit that create a raw and hard-hitting sound, influenced from a range of different styles!

When artists of this calibre get together, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds, with sets that incorporate a creative mix of blues, rock, r&b, soul and folk . . . not forgetting the nostalgic classics and great songs from the incredible Geno Washington!
