Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra bring their "North Eastern Swing" to the NL this weekend08-10-2018
Rob Heron & the Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands in the UK roots circuit. With thousands of touring miles under their belts, they have earned themselves a sizeable fan base in the UK, Europe and beyond.
Rob Heron play their own unique brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’!
Uncut wrote "Rob Heron evokes the spirit of Bob Wills and Django Reinhardt with a quintet that shuffles and boogies with panache. Infectiously good-humoured”. Good-humoured is what we would recall as well, a please to see live and going to a show with Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra is a guarantee for a good night out. Go see them when the are in The Netherlands this month:
