Red Eyed Vipers

We are Red Eyed Vipers, a punk rock band formed in 2011 at Towcester Rock Schools. Our band consists of three members. Guitar and vocals - Seb Walton, Bass Guitar and vocals - Lucas Whitcroft-White, Drums - Lachy Buchanan.

We are based in Northampton and Oxfordshire and if you live in these areas please feel free to contact us at redeyedvipers@gmail.com if you want find out more about us or book any events for us to play.

Our band is inspired by bands such as Green Day, Blink-182 and The Red Hot Chillie Peppers and I think this is reflected in these songs and way we perform live in concert.

13:15 to 14:00...

Drew

When we first saw Drew at the CHOKO Beer Festival seven years ago, he was playing a 5 string upright bass whilst accompanying local poet Ugly Dog.

Since then he has appeared twice with The invisible Few, once solo, and most recently backing jazz singer Fleur Stevenson. Away from CHOKO he is also a member of Band of Hope, and the Stanley Moon Trio.

So which Drew will be appearing at this year's event? You will have to come along to see, but you won't be disappointed.

14:15 to 15:00...

WolfNote

WolfNote is an acoustic quartet from Berkshire, playing a lively, eclectic mix of quality originals and covers.

WolfNote uses rich string and vocal harmonies as their signature sound. Wolfnote have recently released their first 4 track EP 'Frightened of your own F sharp' which is available on CD and amazon music. Wolfnote are; Bex on cello, vocals and recorder, Gill on dulcimer, guitar and vocals, Ceri on violin, vocals and recorder and Mike on cajon, bass and guitar.

15:15 to 6:15

The Sentinels...

The Sentinels formed in the late 90s and have been delighting crowds ever since, with their Hammond organ-driven funk and soul. Searing 'Car chase' music, laid-back grooves, their repertoire covers it all.

16:30 to 17:15...

Jody Wyatt

Born and raised locally (by a pack of wolves) and nephew to the great Robert Wyatt (not that one), Jody merges his traditional folk roots, love of blues and splashes of experimentation to deliver a unique style which is as catchy as it is alluring. Fine vocals interweave with his talent on acoustic guitar and out of this world harmonica, leaving you with his self-penned lyrics on the brain.

' ...the full deal of a singer, excellent guitarist, a dry sense of humour and a clutch of mainly self-written songs... His style reminds at times of the likes of Neil Young and Billy Bragg' Pete Clack - Blues In Britain Magazine

Livewire

Following Louise's impromptu set at the very first CHOKO beer festival, Livewire were formed as a five piece to play the second year's event, and have been playing gigs around the area ever since.

This year we are delighted to introduce Steve on drums. Steve is an extremely accomplished drummer and musician with varied musical tastes and we are delighted he has agreed to complete our 'Five Piece Band'. Despite their tender years they boast close to 180 years of performing experience between them. From blues band to musical theatre and pantomime, with even a chart hit back in the sixties!

Playing many classics from the 50's through the decades to some of the more recent chart hits, our master set list reflects not only our taste in popular music but also the age range of the band.

Alan, Ian, John, Louise and Steve promise to put on a show to entertain you and get you up and dancing if that is what you enjoy.

19:15 to 20:15...

Carl Komuro

It has been said that if Bryan Adams and Dave Grohl had a love child, that child would be Carl Komuro. Carl Komuro is a singer / guitarist living in Cholsey with a great repertoire of songs for all occasions with over 2 decades of gigging experience behind him.

Every performance is packed with enthusiasm, energy, emotion and never fails to bring a smile to someone's face, get them singing, dancing or even have a little emotional moment of their own. Each song is performed with great intensity and has the Komuro Stamp on it.

Artists covered range from: Kings of Leon, Stereophonics, Bryan Adams, Crowded House, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi to name but a few.
