The Achievers – CANCELLED
October 2 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm£8.00
The Achievers are one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed new bands on the UK Blues and Roots Music scene. With a reputation for innovation and originality they prove that soul, groove and song-craft still matter in the blues. Based in Stroud, UK but touring the worlds since 2017, The Achievers’ own brand of modern, secular ‘Dancefloor Gospel’ has catapulted them from near-complete obscurity to rave reviews and big-stage appearances across The World. In September 2019 the band were selected to represent the UK at the International and European Blues Challenges in Memphis and Amsterdam – both major showcases for unsigned blues talent. Upon their return from Memphis, the band were nominated for three UK Blues Awards – Band of The Year, Album of The Year and Emerging Band of The Year.
With their infectious rhythms, joyful melodies and four-part harmonies The Achievers stand proudly as British Blues & Roots outliers. Their appearance will see them performing tracks from their new critically acclaimed album ‘The Lost Arc’ which reached #1 in the Independent Blues Broadcasters Charts and received radio play by Cerys Matthews on BBC RADIO 2.
Aron Attwood, a local Tewkesbury born and bred musician, is on drums and vocals and his career through the musical world has included numerous bands, solo performances and album recordings.
