Stomp & Holler
New Orleans Heat Returns to Bridgnorth with Stomp & Holler
After their sell-out 2014 visit to Theatre on the Steps, back comes big, bold festival favourite blues band exploding on stage with brass, blues and colour. Led by vocalist Oliver Carpenter, ex-Steve Gibbons Band guitar Dave Carroll and keys and squeeze Phil Bond, Stomp & Holler pulls together the best Midlands musicians to create swampy, wonderful music.
The six-piece creates a muscular sound reminiscent of the floor filling music of New Orleans, driven by skin-tight rhythm section Frank Walker (bass) and Martin Ball (drums/percussion) and featuring Phil's excellent piano playing and Dave Carroll's exceptional guitar. This is all topped off with Oliver’s forceful stage personality and and British Blues Awards nominated John Sanderson on saxes and flute, Stomp & Holler is bold, brassy and fills the stage with colour.
From the first growl to the last chord they’ll have you stomping and hollering for more as they move from groove to groove and beat to beat, taking you on a musical journey around the swamps, bayou’s and dancefloors of the blues – all with a real sense of humour.
The 2014 festival season has been a packed one from Blues on the Farm in Chichester to the Great British R&B Festival in Colne, Stomp & Holler, via Upton Blues Festival and Blues at Broom Hill, plus Wallingford and more,Stomp have been cooking up a storm across the country.
“This band certainly captures the fun, colour and musical diversity of the New Orleans sound so rarely heard on these shores.”

"Martin firing up the furnace with Frank shovelling in the coal ...... the standing ovation was inevitable."
