-- The Webb Wilder Credo --

"Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big, wear glasses if you need 'em."

 

Before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Nashville, there was Webb Wilder...

 

Rock ’n’ roll, from Nashville. Formed from Mississippi mud, tinged with British mod. Bruised by the blues. Baptized by Buck and Chuck. Psychiatric psycho-rootsy. Sizzling, glistening, uneasy listening. As it has been for three decades, it is now and ever shall be. Webb Wilder.

 

It's been a long time coming... but here it is, solo and acoustic, here at The Greystones! We are so excited to welcome Webb Wilder to Sheffield for an extremely rare and much anticipated show with this outstanding Nashville legend. This will simply be magnificent!!

 

"If Webb Wilder and his band are passing within 300 miles of your town, don't miss them!" - Vintage Guitar Magazine

 

"There are no explosions, no video enhancements to a Webb Wilder show. Just lots and lots of authentic, gut level rock music. He's the last of the full grown men, and you don't question his genius." - Birmingham News

 

"These days the term 'roots rocker' is almost meaningless, but Wilder's blend of a rocker's heart with a hillbilly's soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet." - Time Out Chicago

 

"The band is 'Georgia Satellites, part Dave Edmunds, part Elvis Costello and altogether wonderful.'" - Billboard Magazine

 

Tickets are £10 adv

I am hearing fantastic things about the show in Newcastle last night. Sounds like Webb is on fire. If you're even thinking about it... Get yourself down tonight. Great beer, great company, storming music!
