Brave Rival @ John Peel Centre for Creative Arts

Brave Rival are the South East’s brand-new rip-roaring rock and blues Machine. Hailing from Portsmouth, the UK Blues Award Nominated band features the powerful and beautiful twin vocals of Chloe Josephine and Lindsey Bonnick. On lead guitar, providing dramatic guitar solos and crunching rock riffs is Ed “The Shred” Clarke. And holding it all together is the rhythmic backbone, the self-proclaimed engine room of Billy Dedman (bass) and Donna Peters (drums).

Drawing influence from the likes of John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and Tedeschi Trucks, they offer a style and sound that you’ve always known, and yet never heard before.

Brave Rival are a band on a meteoric rise, firing on all cylinders and are about to take the world by storm. Their unique combination of beautifully harmonic, soulful vocals, epic guitar solos, pounding drums and powerful bass serves up an infectious sound that is not to be missed.

Beat Jugglers are a five piece live dance collective, making up front, flat out party music.

Take oldskool Exodus Collective and free party legend DJ Tech (The Tribal Editor), the trance techno producer who founded Level One Radio. Mix it up with classically trained pianist Joseph Wiggins (JJW), crossing genres from oldskool anthems to hard trance tune live on a piano. Remix this with Rising High Records veteran and brainchild of Law & Auder, our ‘original junglist’ Phil Earle. Then blend together with the soulful vocals of Nikki Neon and spine tingling melodies from Guru Josh saxophonist Mad Mick. Rave up with and Dusty Boot Crew on the dancefloor and boom! Full on, flat out live dance music!
