Well what a weekend we had at Skegness Rock and Blues Festival! Friday night we took Jaks stage by storm. What an overwhelming response we had, and we thank each one of you for making the experience as special as it was. The new opportunities are already flooding in so watch this space for festivals, gigs and support slots coming soon.

It was great to spend the weekend with such fantastic company with good friends and accomplished musicians which confirmed for all of us that music is our true passion.

January will be a hard act to follow with us ending the month this Saturday in great company at a sold out gig at Coolham Village Hall supporting Protect The Beat.

February starts off with a return appearence at the famous 100 Club in London playing alongside the Mark Pontin Group and the Trevor Burton band. Tickets are available from redbmanagement@alexredbutler.com. Then the next week on Sunday 15th February we are returning to BB's Blues Club in Merton Abbey Mills. Tickets are available from the venue's website. Then we end the month playing on Saturday 21st February at Harpers as part of the Broadstairs Blues Bash.

We hope to see you soon.

Owing to circumstances entirely beyond the band's control, the situation has changed regarding the European Blues Challenge in Brussels. This is an issue which has been decided by the European Blues Union and the upshot is that Red Butler are now involved in a play off for the UK place at the EBC.

The night will involve a 3 band play off, featuring Red Butler, Henry’s Funeral Shoe and Laurence Jones. The winning act will be announced at the end of the night and will go on to represent the UK in Brussels next March.

Come and support us there!
