W T Feaster Band – from Indianapolis, USAW T Feaster Band

Following the success of their UK visit last year, the W T Feaster band are delighted to pay a return visit to the North East, where they were made so welcome. Those who were lucky enough to see this electrifying band last year, will be delighted to hear the boys are back, and for those of you who didn’t – well don’t miss your chance this year to see Travis Feaster’s electrifying and eclectic three-piece.

Whilst the group can play several genres of music including soul, R&B and grooving funk, they personalize their performance with original material and Texas/Chicago blues. Their boundless energy, telepathic musicianship and a flourish of six string ferocity is reminiscent of early Eric Clapton and Cream.

Some quotes from the fans....."I've seen Clapton in London but this tops that!" "Saw Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight, and this guy compares!" "Page, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix- I've seen them all, and he's as good!" "As tight a 3 piece I've seen in 5 years". "I've been watching bands for 40 years and that's the best performance I've ever seen".

From their first performance to last - Everywhere the reaction was the same - stunned and awestruck. They play awesome, fiery blues to packed houses of jaw dropping fans and blues aficionados in the USA most nights of the week. W T Feaster performs outstanding, mind bending, diamond hard riffs as he mercilessly attacks his Fender Stratocaster which screams with an edgy intensity, creating a sound as heavy and raucous as Alvin Lee and as distinctive as Stevie Ray and Jimi Hendrix

Audiences are blown away by the powerful, distinctive tonal quality that these three guys produce. –
