The Sharpeez

The Sharpeez have a suitably high profile to help celebrate their 20th year on the boards.
A high energy, performance of original songs influenced by Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, Tom Petty, The Stones, George Thorogood, Paul Kossoff, Paul Rodgers, Andy Fraser .......
Their crossover blues with a rock influence pushes the boundaries through strong songs, great hooks and some scintillating playing.
The cool juxtaposition between the subtle and the frenetic and the transitions from quiet to loud, is at the core of the unique Sharpees style that is distinctive in the generic blues/rock field.

The Sharpeez represent all that is good about British Rhythm & Blues. Bill Mead’s hard working combo have spent the last 12 years relentlessly touring all over Europe, and while contemporary British R&B was forged by bands such as The Pirates, Dr. Feelgood and Nine Below Zero. The Sharpees have carved out their own R&B niche, based on self penned songs with catchy hooks and the kind of inspired interplay to be found on the new live album.
