Line Up

A unique blend of British and American Blues Rock, an energetic band from Kent, UK. Using the blues rock genre as a canvas, influences come from a wide range of other styles. Drawing parallels with the likes of Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart, to John Mayer and Black Stone Cherry, these only scratch at the surface of what has shaped the band’s sound. Flawless Carbon’s unique take on British Blues Rock; powerful, energetic, electrifying performance and professionalism, have them standing out from the crowd.

Higgs & The Bosons

Welcome to the inner workings of some unusual people. Black Gabanza is a 5 piece band hailing from various parts of the South East and Kent. With a heady mix of the dark, imaginative and twisted; A penchant for whipping up swampy, driving riffs, sublime melodies and sliding so deep in-the-pocket that they could be gasping for air, drowning in their own loose change, wrinkled receipts and lonely fuzzy ‘mint with the hole’. Black Gabanza are inspired and influenced by bands/artists such as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Grinderman, Queens Of The Stone Age, Rival Sons and Tom Waits amongst others and are chomping at the bit to show the world the songs that they’ve been crafting in a cabin hidden in the depths of the Kent countryside
