The boys know how to deliver - classic Blues Brothers standards rub shoulders with Motown floor fillers

The Booze Brothers have been riding high amongst the cream of international tribute bands since 1998, when they were formed from a South Wales musical collective with the twin imperatives of musical excellence and exuberant fun, and, consequently, in recent years,have graced the stage at many of Europe's major festivals, and left a string of satisfied customers in their wake, including the Mayor of Liverpool, British Airways, Chelsea FC and the Liberal Democrats!

The band's longevity and success can be attributed to the virtuosity and dedication of the principal players - vocalist Baz Oldfield has enjoyed a recording career spanning 20 years, submitting several sessions for BBC Radio 1 and having over 50 of his own songs published in the process.

A veteran of countless live performances, he forged his reputation appearing with such luminaries as Jools Holland, Van Morrison, The Pogues and Jerry Lee Lewis. Also fronting the band is Tim Chapman, a man whose effortlessly smooth voice has seen him secure roles in major productions, Buddy and The Rat Pack as well as touring his own combo around the USA and Jamaica.

Trumpeter Cris Haines trained at the London College of Music, taught jazz at Swansea University, played sessions at Polydor Records and has appeared with Joe Tex, Georgie Fame and Eddie" Knock on Wood" Floyd. Bass player Julian Smith is another former session man, hitting the Top Ten with Flowered Up as well as touring with Rose Royce and drummer Rob Wilding, in his capacity as original stickman for The Racing Cars, enjoyed major chart success with" They Shoot Horses Dont They" resulting in several Top of the Pops appearances and worldwide sell-out tours with Bad Company and Manfred Mann.

Above all, however, the boys know how to deliver - classic Blues Brothers standards rub shoulders with Motown floorfillers - Everybody Needs Somebody, Soul Man, Gimme Some Lovin', Shake A Tailfeather, Higher And Higher - the hits keep coming - throw in a liberal dash of Rock'n'Roll, a pinch of Swing Jazz and you're guaranteed an unforgettably energised party experience!
