RED BUTLER, one of the hottest blues-rock bands at the moment, will be playing at Darlington Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Club on Friday, April 7.

Established in 2012 by Alex Butler, the band comprises of Alex (lead guitar and backing vocals), Dan Spellman (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Charlie Simpson (drums) and Mike Topp (bass and backing vocals).

Despite an average age of 24, the band members bring a wealth of experience enabling them to transmit their energy to ignite audiences.

Having spent 18 months in preparation, their second studio album ‘Nothing To Lose’ was released in November 2016.

Drawing upon the combined life experiences of the band, the ten new songs not only salute contemporary rock, but shows their gradual transition from conventional blues to a harder, bigger and bolder sound infused with a progressive form!

The power and creativity of their music has seen Red Butler win several national awards and other accolades, including runner up for Alex Butler in Young Artist category and third place in the Best Blues Band category, both at the British Blues Awards 2016.

The band is really looking forward to playing at Darlington Rhythm ‘n’ Blues Club and armed with a mix of high energy new material, after seeing them becomes clear why they are getting rave reviews wherever they play!
