Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra announces club shows and festivals with "The Party's Over"30-01-2023
The Party Is Over takes takes Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra all over Europe for club shows and festivals. So don’t believe a word of their album title, the party is far from over.
By their own admission, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra have been “gleefully trampling over genre boundaries” for over a decade now. They have toured the British Isles and Europe, playing everywhere from Glastonbury & Cambridge Folk Festivals to village halls, barns and everything in between. As people have come to expect with Tea Pad albums, The Party’s Over builds on their signature sound (a heady blend of Western Swing, Blues, Country, Rock & Roll and Soul) but adds some new flavours – there’s a lot more brass.
Every song is written by Rob, except ‘Trouble Is‘ (Paul Weber), and every word, note & nuance invokes a response, whether humour, sadness, frivolity or reflection. The artistry and expertise of the lyricists, vocalists and musicians are exceptional. And, behind the façade of what can seem flighty or foolish on the surface, there is a real depth of feeling, experience, wisdom and truth. All of this beautifully packaged into an emotional roller coaster of real-life stories.
After more than a decade drinking and carrying on across Newcastle and beyond, this new record sees the band facing up to getting older, feeling the world – and their lives – change, for better or worse, and trying not to be the last one out of the door as the Sunday morning sun hurts their eyes.
