The Sharpeez

The Sharpeez Maximum RnB Band UK (featuring Billyboy Miskimmin from The Yardbirds and Nine Below Zero)

The Sharpeez are old enough to know better but still they’re misbehaving with their blend of classic rock, west coast jangle and rootsy blues influenced attitude. They have been developing and maturing, and like a carefully aged single malt whisky they are finally ready to be appreciated.

The Sharpeez are the very best of British Rhythm and Blues. A high energy, performance of original songs influenced by Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, Tom Petty, The Stones, George Thorogood, Paul Kossoff, Paul Rodgers, Andy Fraser …….Their crossover blues with a rock influence pushes the boundaries through strong songs, great hooks and some scintillating playing. The cool juxtaposition between the subtle and the frenetic and the transitions from quiet to loud, is at the core of the unique Sharpeez style that is distinctive in the generic blues/rock field With the arrival of their classic album ‘Wild One’ in 2018, recorded and Engineered by Paul Madden for 3ms music in France, the Sharpeez have evolved into a major force and they have gained a lot of
recognition in Europe as well as the UK.

If you’ve got to the age where you want to put your feet up and relax to something soothing you’ve come to the wrong place because the Sharpeez aint taking no prisoners. They will drive 12 hours and play a gig that will peel paint off the walls and make you feel you’re missing out on something in life. Inspirational is the word. Welcome to the world of the Sharpeez.

For those of you who supported our 2019 Arran Rock n Blues Festival you may remember The Sharpeez. They were so good we asked them back and this was written by reviewer Ross Muir “The reason The Sharpeez are sub-titled Maximum Rhythm and Blues was underlined emphatically with a primarily up-tempo set that was based around latest and excellent album, Wild One (the funkier R&B of Heartache Express, the change-of-pace title track) and previous release, the equally impressive Mississippi Thrill (the southern affected Tower of Love, the road-driving Trucking on the E15).”
