energy performances of the epic songs you all know and love.

Joe Bayliss
Joe Bayliss.
His first appearance at GlastonBeoley, Joe is a prolific singer songwriter, combining soulful, poetic lyrics that grab your soul, with a, laid back, finger picking guitar style.
Based in Staffordshire but following the acoustic and folk festival scene throughout the country, Joe came to songwriting late in life but has since become an express train of lyrical output. Calling on influences from John Martyn, Damien Rice and Tom Baxter, his music falls somewhere between the cracks of nu-folk and indie-folk for those, for whom a genre matters -It’s about the lyrical content and values, driven by simple but interestingly structured melodies.

Sean & Simon

Sean and Simon

Having both been involved with live music for many years, Sean and Simon first encountered each other when Sean was the drummer in a band that Simon agreed to stand in on guitar for just one gig .. that band was Fishheads, and they carried on in that format (admittedly with a variety of bass players, and the occasional drummer/guitarist swap) for quite a few years playing many rock and blues gigs and festivals together. In fact it took a global pandemic, and an emigrating vocalist, for them to then combine their individual music writing skills into a productive, original duo with an increasing arsenal of new songs. Now, with a shared interest in automotive suspension technology, home recording, and live music Sean and Simon are appearing at an open mic, or festival, or radio station near you …

A band that couldn’t get enough of listening to, Blink 182, Green Day, Alkaline Trio, and other similar bands. And decided to cover some of their songs, and write a few with a similar vibe.

Their unique brand of entertainment fuses Punk Rock and a jumpy, energetic bit of fun that would make you want to jump around like you were fourteen again.

Now hailed as “Redditch’s Best Looking Boy Band” by themselves, Tuesday have performed just over zero shows. That one show however, was performed at the iconic Duck Inn, in Oakenshaw, Redditch.
