BBB Fall 2018 Tour Poster.jpg

Like your Blues with a lot of Rhythm and your Rock with a lot of Roll? 

 

BIG BOY BLOATER & THE LIMITS bring their much-celebrated brand of R&B with a modern twist to The Black Heart to showcase songs from their brand new album ‘PILLS’ plus a few much loved classics from the critically acclaimed album ‘LUXURY HOBO’.

 

Bring your dancing shoes and be ready for tales of swamp monsters, stalkers, betrayal, conspiracy, robot lovers + more set to an infectious beat, with world class guitar, and a vocal that has not only been compared to a cross between Tom Waits and Howlin' Wolf but has been voted as one of the ‘top 100 blues vocalists of all time' in a poll by readers of The Blues Magazine

 

 

The band were also nominated in this year’s ‘Vive Le Rock’ magazine awards as ‘Best Roots Act’ along with Madness and The Selecter.  He already has countless celebrity fans including Imelda May, Jools Holland, Craig Charles and more, and the general public are catching on fast so don’t miss this show before he takes off for superstardom!

"Big Boy Bloater and the Limits have a style that swings and an off-kilter sense of humour.  The result is hugely entertaining, and the packed tent shows an appreciation for this bright and flowing set" -CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

 

“The Big Boy with the big talent and the superb band is a unique artist.  On form, like they are here, the three of them know no limits”. – MAXIMUM VOLUME MUSIC
