The guitar, bass and drums trio The Hamsters have long been established as our premier blues-rock attraction, having performed 4,000 concerts in 21 years. Although primarily playing their own brand of rootsy Rock, Blues and Americana, they're also widely regarded as the UK's leading interpreters of the music of Jimi Hendrix and ZZ Top, and will also perform a short acoustic set.
The band's guitarist and singer, Slim, has a new interview coming up in Guitarist magazine this Autumn, and the lads are also appearing in a new 3-hour DVD documentary about the Fender Stratocaster titled 'Strat Masters'. Players featured in the film are Ry Cooder, Mark Knopfler, Jeff Beck, Chris Rea, Hank Marvin, Bruce Welch, Robert Cray and Rory Gallagher among others.
Join them live at the Swindon Arts Centre for an evening of blues-rock.
