JIMI ANDERSON GROUP
- Legends of AOR

We were blown away by these guys when we saw them playing at the Yarmageddon weekend(s)... they are absolutely BRILLIANT live!!!

JAG is a tribute to great American Melodic Rock with some great musicians and friends “Legends of AOR” debut gig was in Spain in front of a crowd of Rhodes Rockers, safe to say it was so emotional that tears were shead.

So, performing all your favourite tracks by Journey, Boston, Foreigner, Toto, Kansas, Reo Speedwaggon, Styx, Don Henley and many more... PLUS, if we’re lucky, a few of their own numbers thrown in for good measure!

REVIVAL

Risen from the ashes of Birkenhed, The Weller Council and Chest of Pogs, bringing you the best of British classics from the likes of The Stone Roses, Blur, The Happy Mondays, Cast, The Charlatans, The Inspiral Carpets, Kula Skaker, Shed Seven, Ocean Colour Scene, and Oasis (to name but a few).

So get your baggies, sun hat and tracky-top out and swagger down memory lane…. Its time for Revival.

DEAD REYNOLDS

We were first introduced to the DEAD REYNOLDS by our friend Triston Finnis of Twisted Melon Promotions when the guys played R19 at Whitwell on Festival Sunday.

Everybody was so impressed so, on the spot, we invited them back to play on the main field at R20...

Dead Reynolds is a five piece Alt-Rock band from the Eastern Counties. Officially formed in October 2018, the band brings together some familiar faces from the area with former members of Phoenix Calling and The First.

The debut single, ‘Dust’, was released in November and received worldwide airplay, including multiple plays on Johnny Doom’s Kerrang! Radio show. The video was playlisted on Scuzz TV, and was one of the last to be played before the station closed.

The second single, ‘Pieces’ also received worldwide airplay and was playlisted on Kerrang! radio for 6 weeks.

HURRICANE WOLVES

We featured these guys at R19 at Whitwell on Festival Sunday. We liked them so much that we’ve invited them back this year to play on the main field... AND they’re bringing out new music in the new year.

R20 proudly presents HURRICANE WOLVES!

VOLUME 22

Volume 22 are a brand new rock band with an electro interface. They have the swagger and hooks of Oasis with a Kasabian-esque, stadium filling sound. Solid anthemic tunes, from Essex/Suffolk.
The band are comprised of Tony Clarke (Guitar/Vocals), Joshua Greenley (Bass), and Nathan Exley (Drums).

They have already gained support from BBC Introducing, and none other than Paul Arthurs (aka Bonehead) founding member and guitarist of Oasis.

IN THE ZONE

Reepham Music Festival has a reputation of sourcing great acts... and we are very pleased to introduce something a little different.

R20 proudly presents IN THE ZONE. with their own special brand of Jazz Funk.. Nice!!!

SURGE

Surge are an infectious, garage-rock cocktail of tongue-in-cheek lyricism, angular riffs and catchy melodies - an addictive and successful blend that has gifted the band the opportunity to perform at prestigious and major music festivals such as Reading and Isle of Wight Festival, and consistent airplay from Radio X and BBC Introducing.

Hailing from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, this enthralling, guitar-ladened, four-piece have quickly established themselves as a blistering live force and their energetic and often unpredictable live shows have been said to embody the same snarling edge of The Vaccines and the charming characteristics of The Libertines.

CHRISTIAN SMITH

Christian is highly talented Americana singer-songwriter with a rocky edge. His debut single from Revival 'Auburn Sky' gained international plays in Australia and America and reached number 5 in the iTunes Country Chart.

Christian has gained interest online by previously reaching number 1 in the Reverbnation Singer/Songwriter chart, leading to shows at venues including O2 Academy Islington, Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The Bodega and more.
